geneva to chamonix, by shuttle bus or train withchanges?

Geneva city not airport.

we have half fare card and family card.

a day trip from Geneva to Chamonix or stay 1 night at Chamonix? we need head to brig after Geneva or Chamonix on 20 Decembe. personally plan to have a day trip from Geneva to Chamonix, back to Geneva and next day train to brig. don't want to carry heavy luggages and just stay at Chamonix for 1 night. any locals or who have done this trip before will think any better way?

thanks

Shuttle bus gets about 80% of the custom, train the other 20%. Shuttle buses are very convenient, I'd probably recommend that since I wouldn't want to spend all day on a train just to save 25EURO.

Have a nice trip!

thank you. after reading for half day, i feel exactly like what you said, shuttle is easier only cost a bit more. but the cable car to aiguilee du midi annually close on 20 dec 2013 on website. do not why, this should be the ski season or too too cold for skiing??? we will arrive on 19 december around 9am, after check in hotel maybe ready to set out from geneva train station around 10 am, hope we can make a day trip to chamonix.thanks again.

I haven't been able to find this year's opening times yet. Where did you manage to find them?

They don't normally close the Aiguille du Midi lift at that time as it is obviously one of the busiest times of the year.
