Chamonix-Mont-Blanc or, more commonly, Chamonix is a town and commune in eastern France, in the Haute-Savoie département, at the foot of Mont Blanc. At the census of 1999 it had a population of 9,830 inhabitants and a land area of 116.53 km² (44.99 sq mi). The town lies at an altitude of 1,035 metres. It held the 1924 Winter Olympics. read full wikipedia reference about Chamonix, France

The ever popular CHAMONIX may have long since had its village identity submerged in a sprawl of tourist development, but the glaring snowfields, crystal green glaciers and ridges of shark-toothed aiguilles surrounding Mont Blanc are more than ample compensation.

The town itself is of little interest, while being extremely expensive, and it crawls with tourists in the high summer season. The Musée Alpin , off avenue Michel-Croz in the town centre (daily: June to mid-Oct 2-7pm; Christmas-May 3-7pm), will interest mountaineers, but its collection of equipment and documents is a bit disappointing. The star exhibit is Jacques Balmat's account of his first ascent of Mont Blanc in 1786, written in almost phonetically spelt French.
