Does anyone know what the Rando/Alpi pass is for the Midi lift? It's the price of a one way but the tariff table says you get a one way trip and a return trip for that. That can't be right can it?

Harry.

It is. The price difference is about one euro if I remember correctly.

In reply to Juki: It's the same price as a single, but you get a return and a single!

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.

In reply to HarryB: I think it's for if you do say the Frendo spur you get a measly 4 euro discount for not taking the top lift.

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.
