Best method of travel from Milan to Charmonix

My husband and son will be travelling to Europe to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc. We're finding that airfares are much cheaper if they fly into Milan rather than Geneva. There is a shuttle bus from Geneva to Charmonix. Is there anything similar for Milan to Charmonix (I can't find one)? If not, what would be the fastest transportation to the trail without renting a car? Any info you can provide would be appreciated.

You may be having difficulty because you are not spelling the same correctly: it is Chamonix.

Milan does not have good links with Chamonix because there is a large range of mountains in the way. I can find train journeys, but they would take 4h45 with 3 changes.

There are no shuttle bus services from Milan to Chamonix. I know some of the transfer companies will offer it a as a private transfer but the price will be quite high.

If you can get from Milan to Courmayeur then there is a bus through the Mont Blanc tunnel to Chamonix.

Thank you all and sorry for the mis-spelling. Maybe we'll wait to see if the airfares to Geneva go down. They're currently quite high.
