WHICH AIRPORT IS BEST FOR TRANSFERS TO VAL THORENS?
Chambery Airport is the closest airport to Val Thorens with the shortest transfer time, but it has a limited selection of flights. For a greater choice, consider flying into Geneva Airport, Lyon Airport or Grenoble Airport. Of course, the transfer time depends on the traffic and the weather. If you’re travelling during the school holidays the roads can be very busy, so the journey takes more time. We allow extra time when we know the traffic may be bad. Val Thorens is at the end the Belleville valley road, the D117. The transfer time is therefore less than other large French ski resorts.
– Chambery airport (CMF) is 122km (76 miles) from Val Thorens. The transfer time is about 2 hours 20 minutes – 3 hours.
– Moutiers Bus Station is 38 km from Val Thorens. The transfer time is about 1 hour 10 minutes. If you are arriving by eurostar and looking for transfers from Moutiers train station, we’d recommend the local Val Thorens public buses or a taxi.
