Chamonix is not the most high-tech town in the world but there are a few useful sites to visit and the Chamonix App is great!
In the last few years, like with many places, the Chamonix online community has boomed. Today we have running clubs, jobs info, mums n tots clubs, mailing lists and Facebook groups with over 15 000 members. As you may already know, moving to a new community can be challenging and that’s why we are writing a list of useful Chamonix links for you.
Here are the main ones we recommend to use.
