Chamonix 3 day trip/Montenvers/Aigule du midi

Hello! My sister and I will be in Chamonix for three days at the end of July. I am wondering what the best use of our time.

I am interested in both the montenvers train/ice cave as well as the aigule du midi cable car. I also would like to do some light scenic hiking (preferably with easy access!) I am having trouble finding some info, and would really appreciate some help!

Some questions:

Are the "return trip" prices for aigule include both departing and returning tickets? Or just return? I am having trouble determining the total cost of the trip, (and if the multipass is worth it?)

Also, is the Helbronner continuation worth the extra time/money? Seeing as it is not part of the multipass...

Are there any accessible hikes with great views you would recommend?

Is it feasible to do both Montenvers and the Aigule du midi trip in one day? (Will it be too cloudy later in the day?)

Thank you for any help/information, I am very excited to visit Chamonix and still have to plan!

A return ticket is a return ticket covering both trips on the sections/lifts purchased for.

If you intend doing Hellbrunner, Montenvers and any other lifts I would buy the multi-Pass. It is much better value and means you can use it at the other areas.

The Petit Balcon Sud from Chamonix to Argentiere is good and easy in all aspects.
