/ Chamonix: lift options for winter climbing
Looking at the rates for a fortnight's trip, it looks like the lift pass that includes Grand Montets and the Midi is about 450 euros; given that we are not planning on using lifts every day (i.e. going up, staying in a winter room for a night or two, skiing down) is there a cheaper alternative?
Are single day tickets the only option (at about 50-55 quid each for the highest stations) or can one buy a 5-trip pass or something similar?
Thanks. I think that will be the way forward.
