Chamonix is right at the foot of Mont-Blanc, the highest mountain in Western Europe. It is a great place for relaxing in the alps or setting out on any number of adventure sports. The town is quite small and may leave you hard pressed with things to do if you are not one to get out and explore nature. If you enjoy hiking or sightseeing, you will find yourself with enough to keep busy for weeks.
The town lies in a line of villages nestled in the valley between the mountains. There is a train line connecting all the towns, so if you find yourself in trouble finding a Chamonix hostel, it's quite easy to get in and out from a neighboring town. There are more campsites than hostels, and many are very laid back and nearly the same as a hostel (electricity, wifi, toilets) with the exception of sleeping outside instead of in a bed.
It can get quite cold in Chamonix due to its location, so make sure you have a good sweater. Don't miss the town itself in your rush to explore the Alps, it is quite a pleasant town with a very Swiss feel. Live music and outdoor bars are quite common and not overly expensive. Look for a hostel in Chamonix close to the old town so you can spend as much time there as possible. If you are looking for nightlife you will find some bars open late, but not much in the way or clubs. You will find the odd group of mountaineers celebrating their recent ascent of Mont Blanc and will be happy to stay out and share a beer.

Chamonix Travel Tips & Suggestions
Alpybus is the number one transporter for those with a limited budget. 23.50 euros for a ticket is pretty good in comparison to the other companies out there.
There is lots of off-piste from the Brevent and Flegere lifts, great powder to be had. Getting there, use Chamexpress.
Do not use Alpybus. They will stand you up and you will miss your flight!
If you are a good skier and love offpiste, then Chamonix and Verbier are one of the best places in Europe. No argument about it.
Chamonix is off piste-skiing. If you want the piste go elsewhere. There aren't really any pistes. It's about ski touring with easy access, it's about mountaineering type stuff. And don't come if you're not fit on crevasse and avalanche rescue, the weather, or want to learn that. Unless you want to skip the skiing and get into the nightlife -- fine!
If it is on-piste boarding/skiing you are after, Chamonix may not be the place for you. I am halfway through a season here and am just beginning to discover that it is all about the off-piste. That is the big deal with Chamonix.
Went there in January 05 and had a good time. It was a little thin on the snow, but that would be expected at this time of the year. We had a good first day and second day because there were freshies. It has steep and rugged terrain and I am looking forward to going next year, but probably in feb or march. Excellent new years with people in the square, fire, fireworks, and drunks pushing each other in shopping carts. Not a police officer in site, they would have had the cops in force if this was in America.
After two seasons of Chamonix I can never imagine being bored by its varied and steep terrain. After a week in Tignes I felt like I had covered almost every inch of the mountain even though it is obviously more interconnected.
It is spread out but that's because it's not a purpose built resort, it's an old town with an atmosphere you wouldn't find in any other. Oh, and the off piste is amazing...
I'm half way through my first season in Cham and it's a great place to in terms of snow and apres ski... it's got the best places to eat at 2 am - Midnight Express and Poco Loco!!
I have no idea what this person is talking about. Maybe they were in a different resort. Chamonix is the only place to go, when it comes steep extreem of peist boarding, it also hosts a huge range of awesome slopes for all abilities. With its rad of piest and laid back atmosphere it's the only place to be...
Everything in Chamonix, is truely remote from any skiing. I wouldn't go back, mostly because Chamonix as a ski area is over-rated. It's lots of small ski areas spread out. Lifts are slow, crowded, and you have to take a lift up above the tree line before you can take another lift to begin skiing. Go to Tignes instead...
