French Ski Resort Transfer Times


On the hunt for French ski resort transfer times? We've pulled together a list of all the major French ski resorts, their nearest airports and the approximate transfer times for each resort.

For short break ski holidays transfer times can be an important factor in deciding which resort to choose, as they ensure you maximise your time on the slopes. Bear in mind on peak Saturday transfer days, transfer times can increase considerably as the roads are full of coaches and cars heading to the slopes.

At SkiWeekends, we want to help you maximise your time on the slopes, so we offer ski breaks that depart on Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday to ensure you miss the gridlock!

Find the transfer times and nearest airports for French ski resorts below (we know Chambery is much closer to many resorts, but flights there are limited, so we've stuck with the major hubs of Grenoble Airport and Geneva Airport):
