Getting flights to val disere is perhaps the quickest and easiest way with planes from all over the UK arriving regularly. The four airports closest to Val disere are:
Geneva: Flights from the UK come into Geneva, Switerland very regularly with various airlines such as BA and Easyjet offering a good price. Geneva is the furthest of the 3, being approximately 3.5 hours drive away from resort. There are many regular connections from Geneva (coaches/buses), more so than the other 2 airports and Geneva rarely closes for bad weather. If you are hiring a car, the journey from Geneva is longer and slightly more complicated than the other 2 airports.
Chambery: Chambery, France is the closest airport to val disere, being only 2.5 hours away. However flights are not as regular as Geneva and the airport is more likely to close due to bad weather.
Grenoble: Grenobal, France is a small airport so very easy when you arrive. However flights are not as regular. It is between 2.5/3 hours to Val d’Isere, but again like Chambery there can be delays if the weather is bad.
Lyon: Lyon airport in France is about 3 hours away from val disere and flights are more regular than Chambery. If you are hiring a car the journey is easier than from Geneva but there are fewer connections to the resort if you are planning on getting a coach/bus.
Snowjet is a skiflight specialist company offering flights to and from Chambery airport. Private flights are also available if you fancy a luxurious journey with transfers to and from resort included! http://www.snowjet.co.uk

Lyon has a similar coach service which costs about €66 for an adult single. See http://satobus-alpes.altibus.com/index.aspx for more information. If you are flying into Chambery or Grenoble it is advisable to book a private transfer or hire a car.
It is definitely advisable to prebook any val disere transfers. Getting into a taxi once you arrive at the airport is going to be very expensive so do be careful to plan your journey beforehand.
There are no trains to take you all the way into val disere resort. The nearest train station is Bourg St Maurice, about 30-45 mins drive away from the resort. If you choose to take the train you will need to arrange to catch a bus or organise a private transfer to take you on the last leg of your journey. Buses from Bourg go every couple of hours or so and cost about €10 for an adult single.
However the last coach leaves the train station at 6pm so be careful of your timings.

The Snow train offers a return service where you have 8 days skiing, we can look after your luggage if you take this option but you still have to leave your accommodation at 10am. However we will try to accommodate where ever we can.
Hiring a car once you arrive at the airport is another popular option that many people take advantage of. If you are coming as a family or group of friends it isn’t necessarily an expensive choice and provides a certain freedom.
