/ Aiguille du Midi Rando/Alpi
It is. The price difference is about one euro if I remember correctly.
It does seem bizarre doesn't it. Could it be an aller simple to Plan de l'Aiguille and then an aller retour from the Plan de l'Aiguille > Aiguille du Midi > Plan de l'Aiguille...? That way you can go to the top of the Midi and have a look round, then come back down to the mid station and then walk down - that would be the 'Rando' bit. You can get a similar thing at the Flégère (in summer) called a 'combiné' which gives you aller simple to the Index and retour from the Flégère... Just a thought.
That would be creating a ticket category for a very small number of people...
Not exactly. Normal return (Chamonix - Midi - Chamonix) is 45,60 euros. The "Rando ticket" is 39,60 euros. Rando ticket gives you Chamonix - Plan - Midi - Plan sections.
