>> Does this mean the trip from Martigny to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (France) is free with my Swiss Pass? Or do I need to purchase a ticket at the French border to Chamonix and back?
Yes, the trip from Martigny to Chamonix via Le Châtelard-Frontière is free with the Swiss Travel Pass and no additional ticket is required. This train is called the Mont-Blanc Express.
When are you travelling? From 3rd April to 24 June 2017, trains will be replaced by buses between Le Châtelard-Frontière and Chamonix, as they are installing a new rail operation system. It seems from the timetable that the journey time will not be increased though.
