    • Hiking around Chamonix in mid-October

      Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Aug 13, 2016 at 4:08 AM

      Hi guys, I will be in Chamonix in mid October for 4-5 days. Hoping to do some easy hike around the area. It's the first time that I'm visiting hence would appreciate any information.

      - Will there be snow in mid October? Any easy hikes where the trails would have snow?

      - I've read that waterproof hiking shoes are required for October? Do I need to bring one or any trail running shoes will suffice (non-waterproof)?

      - The weather forecast tends to show between 5-15 degrees celsius for mid October. But I'm not sure if this is taken from the town or from summit or in between? What kind of temperature can I expect if I'm looking to do some hikes. Any trail hikes from Aiguille du Midi stations?

      - Any other recommended activities for a first time visitor? Greatly appreciate any information.

      Thanks in advance!
