However, this is one of the best times to visit Chamonix, there's still plenty to see and do before autumn arrives.
Whilst the crowds may have dispersed, there is still lots to see and do in Chamonix at this time of year. In fact it's the perfect time to visit. The weather is usually good, and that means there's still plenty of opportunity to get out and about in the valley, unimpeded by the crowds, and it's definitely easier to get a table in a restaurant and a seat on a terrace.
This is when we like to go trail running, hiking, biking, and climbing, but without the crowds. Plus there's always time for some relaxation when you come to Chamonix.
Read on for a look at what we like to do in resort throughout September.
