Last year, I used a Swiss Pass to travel on the Mont Blanc Express to Chamonix, ending on the Chamonix-Mont Blanc stop (the end point of Swiss Pass validity according to the SBB map online).
This year, we are staying in Les Houches rather than Chamonix but will have Swiss Passes as we will be touring primarily in Switzerland. Will a Swiss Pass cover the few TER stops beyond Chamonix into Les Houches, or do we need to book separate SNCF tickets for that short journey?
If so-- it doesn't look like a change of trains is necessary between Chamonix and Les Houches, so do we need to get off, buy a ticket, and get back on at the Chamonix-Mont Blanc stop? Or can we simply buy tickets online and stay on the same route?
We'd appreciate any expert guidance one of you might be able to offer on these nitpick particulars :) Thanks, and we are excited to visit soon!
