Full review

Went there with a family of 4 (2 adults / 2 children) Pricy ski pass = 160 EUR for 4 hours but Chamonix is Chamonix...What did you expect ? All car park were full. After 15 minutes truning around, we did park as many along a road, 2 wheels on the pavement. No problem with circulation at all. Guess what : when we all retrieve our car 4 hours later, the city kindly gave a 135 EUR fine for parking ! Cool, I love Cham. Bottom line : Chamonix is today overrated. Swiss and Austrian resorts offer much more to ski fans and some more skiers-friendly attitudes.
