i had a season pass there last year but spent most of my time at la clusaz which is just a 20 minute drive from there.
the terrain is relatively flat compare to other mountains in the alps but lots of nice long cruisers that are fun to rip on. theres some dece off lift steeps that require little hiking but la Clusaz has a lot more. Theres a shuttle bus that goes from both mountains so i would definitely hop on the bus and go shred the "la balme" area at la clusaz, amazing open terrain with tons of natural jumps drops and hips. Also where Candide used to host the candide invitational back in the day.
Also chamonix like you said isn't too fare, maybe an hour and half drive at the most and definitely worth it if you have time to go visit. Mont blanc is quite the spectacle but Cham terrain is pretty raw dawg so make sure you stay relatively "inbounds" and don't venture anywhere alone.
lemme know if you have any more questions.
