Questions

Is Chamonix a town it think the article says at the start that it is but then goes on to talk about the valley and not much else

Yes it is a town, it says in the first line: "Chamonix is a town and commune in eastern France" 68.255.0.152 (talk) --Preceding comment was added at 07:10, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

What is the Climate and area in sq km of Chamonix what is the lanuage? --Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.55.43.156 (talk) 08:35, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

french article is much much better. Information about the area and not the town should probably go on another page? eg lifts, particularly those not starting in Chamonix town. As people use 'Chamonix' to refer to the area this other page could be linked to as a disambiguation link at the top. Throwawayyy (talk) 12:49, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

For tourists looking to reach Chamonix the best option is Alpybus

"For tourists looking to reach Chamonix the best option is Alpybus " Blatant advertising but useful. The same information has been added to the "Tour du Mont Blanc" page by the same IP. I suggest a new page called "Public transport to Chamonix" Mtpaley (talk) 19:58, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Yes, blatant advertising. There is plenty of commercial information about Chamonix on the web. Two promiment sites, chamonix.net and chamonet.com The latter appears to be a copy of the former but does have some unique content. Chamonix.net is better for planning a holiday but chamonet.com has better info for a visitor in the resort. (Rtremayne (talk) 09:43, 10 July 2010 (UTC))

Racists

The text reads "The first party to publish (1744) an account of their visit was that of Dr. Richard Pococke, Mr. William Windham and other racists[...]"

I think "racists" is not the word the editor was looking for. Anyone with a better choice of words? 85.4.254.66 (talk) 18:16, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Joke?

It looks like someone has slipped a joke into the second paragraph: "Gateway to the European Cascades"? Someone is playing on the fact that Marblemount (at the entrance to North Cascades National Park in the United States) uses "Gateway to the American Alps" as their slogan (as do a number of other towns). I could be wrong, of course. Thebravecowboy (talk) 14:09, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

A google book search did not find anything. Various blogs and tourism sites do use the term but did they just get it from Wikipedia?--Charles (talk) 18:55, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Page title

The official name of the city being "Chamonix-Mont-Blanc", why is the title of the page "Chamonix"? -- Preceding unsigned comment added by Panais24 (talk o contribs)

First off, Panais24, new questions go at the bottom of a talk page, not the top, so I have moved this down.
The answer to your question - which is a good one - is simple. Chamonix is the name commonly used to describe this place by people using the English language. Indeed, whenever I have stayed there, that's what the French people call it, too! On popflock.com resource we title articles by what people most commonly refer to something, not by what it chooses to call itself. That's why, on French Wikipedia, I'm sure the article about London is spelled Londres - because that's how French people commonly call the city in their language. See WP:COMMONNAME for English Wikipedia's guidance on this. (Please remember to sign your posts on talk pages by typing four keyboard tildes like this: ~~~~.)
