Continued renovation works by the Compagnie du Mont Blanc will put the new “Step Into The Void” and the top-access lift at Aiguille du Midi out of action from 15th September.

The closures are part of a general programme of investment in the lift network of Chamonix by the Compagnie du Mont Blanc, with this interseason already seeing the start of works on the Plan Joran cable car at les Grands Montets.

The works at the Aiguille du Midi will improve the current lift access to the topmost viewing platform. Upon completion of the refurbishment in Spring 2015, the current lift will have been replaced with a new generation double lift for access to the highest viewing platform on the Aiguille du Midi.
