    Most shops, restaurants and ski hire shops will be open. Some of the smaller ones might not bother but there are plenty of large ones to choose from.

    It is a very busy time of year in general in the ski area. If you want to ski on Christmas day it is best to avoid some of the queuing if you reserve your gear online before you arrive. Several of the stores in town such as the Cham3S group, Sanglard Sports, Twinner and Intersport have have websites that let you put in your information to reserve equipment in the right size etc.. You can use Google Maps to see which store might be closest to your accommodation. Just search on "location ski chamonix" and you will find many to choose from. You can also reserve your ski pass online from the Compagnie du Mont Blanc website. Do not expect any of this to be available right now though - the sales for ski passes will not start until around early to mid November, so check their website then. http://www.compagniedumontblanc.com
