Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

FYI if there’s anyone left. The top stage of the midi lift is closed due to a problem with the cable!


More info on this:

Quote:

An anomaly discovered on the haulage cable, the 2nd cable-car (Plan de l’Aiguille – Aiguille du Midi) will be closed until 27th May inclusive.
The first cable-car, Chamonix - Plan de l’Aiguille will remain open until Monday 21st May inclusive for ramblers & mountaineers so as not to penalize these mountain activities.
The whole of the Aiguille du Midi system will then be closed from 22nd to 27th May 2018 inclusive.

“We've just heard that the Aiguille du Midi lift in #Chamonix will reopen on June 2nd, instead of May 27th, due to the engineering works currently taking place. Luckily, the Planpraz lift in Brévent will remain open until then:”

More on the midi lift.
“-Midi Closed til 7th of July-

Early evening and after the last check, we noticed a new minor default on another part of the cable. Safety being the number one priority of the Compagnie du Mont Blanc, we decided to close the operation for a complete change of this cable.

- The 2nd section cable car Plan de l'Aiguille - Aiguille du Midi will be closed to customers from tomorrow morning, Monday, June 4th onwards.

- The 1st section cable car Chamonix - Plan de l'Aiguille will remain open to visitors and climbers until Sunday, June 17th at night and then closed to carry out the change of the cable.

The operation will then resume entirely on both sections, from Chamonix to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi on saturday, July 7, 2018 in the morning.”

Midi cable car closed suddenly today and won’t reopen for the rest of the summer. There is a problem with the new cable. Bad luck if you’re descending from Mont Blanc that way intending on getting the lift down!

@under a new name, yes but at least they spotted it, the alternative doesn’t bear thinking about. It’s a long long walk down for anyone caught up there and it could be a few at the height of the season.

The Lac Blanc path from Col Montets is officially closed due to rock fall. This could affect people doing the Tour de Monte Blanc, the path closed is the grand balcon sud. I looks as though the tre la champ path is still open.

Just found my club prive email invite to buy a discounted Chamonix season pass for next season. It was in my junk folder, might be worth a look.
If you’ve bought a season pass in the last three years you get a big discount on next years if you purchase before the end of October.

Wow, the twitter clip looks bad.

if you look at the webcam at 1.30 there is nothing.

1.40 a bit of smoke and some blokes on the roof with fire extinguishers.

1.50 a lot of smoke and no-one on the roof anymore.

Webcam stops updating after that but a pic off Facebook shows flames out of roof.

Yep, I pinged them a Whatsap to get it up after your post and it hitting Facebook. Not that they needed my help to spot it, I'm pretty sure the big plume of smoke alerted them.
