>> I will have a carte d'hôte that will give me free travel between Chamonix and Vallorcine. From there, it looks like I can buy a $22 US ticket on SCNF from Vallorcine to Martigny. (Some info on line suggested this was not possible, saying SCNF required purchase of a full-fare ticket from Chamonix to Martigny at a much higher price, but the site today seems to allow for shorter trip ticket.)
Yes, I've read quite a bit about that online too.
The Winter 2017/18 brochure for the Carte d'Hôte confirms this as well:
Free train travel is only available between the stations of Servoz and Vallorcine. All journeys outside this perimeter require travellers to purchase train tickets covering their entire journey (e.g. Chamonix-St Gervais ou Chamonix-Martigny).

If what you are planning to do with your tickets does in fact work out for you, it would be appreciated if you could confirm this by reporting back after your trip :-)
