The White Lady—"La Dame Blanche"—of France and Italy is a very popular destination for tourists and mountain sports enthusiasts—hikers, cyclists, skiers, snow-boarders, and mountaineers. She receives more than 20,000 climbers to the summit annually. The Tramway du Mont Blanc climbs to an elevation of 7,782 feet. The normal French climbing route starts there, at Nid d'Aigle and proceeds to the Tête Rousse Hut.
The summit elevation is imprecise. because the summit of Mont Blanc is covered with ice pack, which changes from year to year.
