/ Angentiere Glacier. Ice climbing in Sept?
La Cremerie only forms in the depths of winter. Your best bet is to go upto the Mer de Glace and practice on the sides of the crevasses, there are plenty that are safe with filled in bottoms! There are all sorts of angles from vertical to an easy slope.

The ice-fall.com guys run long weekends in September ice climbing on the Mer de Glace. Crevasses and Moulins. There are some nice pictures of what you can do on their web site http://www.ice-fall.com/rc/Chamonix/Mer/de/Glace/519.aspx
I suggested it more in jest, I guess you're looking for ice climbs, not out of condition snow slopes!
