Car Hire: Hiring a car is a popular method of reaching your ski chalet, offering great flexibility and the opportunity for your party to travel in your own time. If you are landing at Geneva airport, we recommend arranging your car hire on the Swiss side so that you avoid having to buy a motorway pass. Also, cars in Switzerland are required by law to be fitted with snow tyres and are also likely to come fitted with snow chains.
If you are arranging your car hire on the French side, make sure you have pre-booked snow chains as it is against the law to drive on the Alps without them between December and April. If you don’t have any fitted, it could result in a fine and you may be denied access to the mountain
Bus: There are buses travelling to our resorts from Chambery, Geneva, Grenoble and Lyon, and if you are holidaying during the peak weeks booking your seats is necessary. For more information or to book your seats, you can visit Alpski-Bus and Altibus. To get from Chambery airport Mobisavoie provide a shuttle service.
