There are a variety of options available for clients to make their way to the Alps. Please read below for details of how you might wish to travel.
What are your options?
Powder N Shine do not deal with clients’ travel arrangements directly and travel is therefore not included in our prices unless otherwise stated. This is because we truly believe that there are some excellent deals to be found in terms of flights, trains or even self-drive, and we believe that you are best placed to find the best mode of transport for you at the right price.
However, we are always available to advise you on your travel arrangements whatever they may be, and if you do fly, we have developed a partnership with a fully licensed local transfer company who have very competitive prices. We would be very happy to organise this for you if you choose to fly and take advantage of the competitive prices.
Below are a number of potential options for getting to the Alps:
If you choose to fly, there are a number of different airports you can fly to including: Lyon (180km from the resort), Geneva (145km) and Chambery (120km).
Here are a few of the popular airlines:
- Flybe.com fly from Southampton, Birmingham and Exeter on selected week days, and all weekends.
- Jet2.com fly from Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh, and Belfast on weekends only (predominantly Saturdays).
- Snowjet fly from London Gatwick, London Stansted, Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester on weekends only (predominantly Saturdays). – British Airways fly from all major cities
- EasyJet fly from all major cities
If you live in the South, or near London, it may make sense to jump onto a train, either from London St Pancras International or in Kent. This offers an overnight and daytime option, running directly from London or Ashford to Moutiers, Aime, Bourg St Maurice. Daytime services run on Saturdays, whilst the overnight train departs on Friday evenings so that you arrive in the Alps first thing on Saturday morning, then departs the following Saturday evening allowing passengers to arrive back early on Sunday morning.

Why not throw your suitcases in the car and just drive?! Driving can be a great option for those of you who have lots of luggage; would like to be able to visit a few other resorts which are close by etc.
You can choose to take the Eurotunnel or a ferry across the Channel which then arrives in Calais. Reberty Village is approximately 970km away from Calais and is estimated to take 9-10 hours to reach Reberty Village.
From Calais, follows signs to Reims, Dijon, Lyon, Albertville, Moutiers. Once you have arrived in Moutiers, you will begin your climb up the mountain.
