CAN I GO SKIING NEXT YEAR?
This season has been a tad frustrating for skiers and boarders. Most ski holidays have now been cancelled, so many of you are asking… When can I go skiing again?
All European ski resorts will almost certainly open for the 2021/2022 season and Tour Operators are reporting a surge in bookings. A lot of the airlines have already announced their winter schedules and prices for peak weeks are rising fast. So we wanted to let you know what ski transfers we’re thinking of running, so you can plan your next trip to the mountains.
2021 / 2022 WINTER SKI SEASON – AIRPORT TRANSFER DATES
Nearly all our airport transfer services to the French ski resorts will resume next season. The vaccine roll out and the minimal disruption to travel caused by Brexit should mean next winter will be business as usual. We will get our ski transfers on sale as soon as we can. Keep up to date and get access to our early bird discounts by joining our Mailing List using the form below, or follow us on facebook. In the meantime, here’s what we’re considering:
Our ski transfers from Geneva Airport will run on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season. For our most popular routes, such as Geneva to Val Thorens, Geneva to Tignes and Geneva to Val d’Isere, we’ll have up to 9 buses per Saturday. We’ll also have some weekday buses over the Christmas and New Year weeks (scroll down for more details).
Apart from our special transfers for the RISE festival, our Saturday-only service will start on the 8th January 2022. We aim to have a mid-morning and a late afternoon bus to the resorts listed on our Lyon Airport page. Sign up to our Mailing List using the form below so we can inform you when we know more.
If you are heading to Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes, we will have a bus connecting with every single scheduled flight, any day of the week, throughout the season. Our services to other resorts will definitely run on Saturdays. We’ll also have Sunday buses over the Christmas holidays and we may have Sunday services on some other dates.
CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS WEEKS
This year, Christmas Day and New Years Day falls on a Saturday, the traditional changeover day in ski resorts. A lot of airlines don’t actually fly on Christmas Day. The resorts know this and a lot of accommodation providers will change their holiday packages to a Sunday – Sunday in December 2021, reverting back to a Saturday – Saturday in January 2022. We’ll be running some extra buses from Grenoble and Geneva over the festive period.
If you are planning a trip between Grenoble Airport and either Les Deux Alpes or Alpe d’Huez, we connect with every single scheduled flight. So whatever day you fly in or out, we will have a bus for you.

2021/22 SKI SEASON TRANSFER PRICES
Times are hard for everyone, so we’re doing our bit and intend to freeze our prices for the 2021 / 2022 winter ski season. You can see our current fares on our Prices Page. A Return costs under £90pp for resorts like Val Thorens, Tignes, Val d’Isere, Les Arcs, La Plagne and Meribel and just over £50pp for Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes. However, we have loads of discounts for groups and children. We’ll be running some early bird discounts so make sure you sign up to our Mailing List below and like us on facebook to get access to these promo codes.
WHAT REFUND GUARANTEES ARE THERE?
The hugely successful roll-out of the vaccine in the UK is offering the ski industry some optimism. That said, we know that you still need the peace of mind of receiving a refund should you need to cancel. Flexibility to change your booking for free is another key requirement for many holidaymakers. That’s why we recommend upgrading to Ben’s Bus Plus, which allows you to book with confidence.
