Chamonix Hiking in Octobergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread
Hi, I am interested in doing some Hiking in the alps, but I will not be in Chamonix until the middle of October. Is this still a good time to go? We are planning on going for about 4 days, so any recommendations on places to stay, and routes would be much appreciated. Even a two day ice climbing course or something similar might be fun !
Thanks in advance

Hiking in Chamonix in mid-October has some pros and cons. Most vacationers/tourists will be gone so you'll have the place and trails to yourself. The downside is that a lot of places will be closed for the season, especially refuges (if you're planning on hiking the GR5 or do the Tour du Mont-Blanc). The weather might be inclement also that time of year. if colder temperatures don't bother you, then October is the way to go.
Have fun, man!
