WHICH AIRPORT IS BEST FOR VAL THORENS?
Val Thorens is at the end the Belleville valley road, the D117, which starts down at Moutiers. The transfer time is therefore less than other large French ski resorts. Of course, the journey depends on the traffic and the weather. If you are travelling during the school holidays, the roads up to Val Thorens can be very busy, so the journey can take longer. We allow extra time when we know the traffic may be bad. Chambery is the closest airport but it has a limited selection of flights. As a result, most people choose to fly into Geneva, Lyon or Grenoble. These airports have more regular flights to more destinations. For transfers from the train station, we’d recommend the local public buses.

We can drop you off at or pick you up from the main bus station, the “Val Thorens Gare Routiere” or the Val Thorens UCPA centre.
