Travel to resort
We would kindly request that all our guests make their own flight or travel arrangements. Please make sure you let us know your exact arrival details (including flight numbers, departure and arrival airports and departure and arrival times or train information) and we will arrange your transfer to and from the resort.
Would you please advise your mode of travel to the UK office at the time of booking your holiday.
We are well aware that your transfer from the airport to the resort is a critical part of your holiday. No one likes sitting on a bus waiting for other flights with the impersonal attitude of larger tour operators. We have numerous minibuses available for our transfers and our drivers do their utmost to make sure you are picked up promptly and taken directly to our chalets – we work extremely hard in making sure this part of your holiday works smoothly and efficiently. On some occasions, depending on the number of guests being transferred, we do charter a larger coach when required.
Please note that our transfers only operate on Saturdays and, unless specifically prebooked and prepaid, they are shared transfers and are not private transfers. Our Transfer Section work very hard to ensure a minimum waiting time at the airport for our guests but they do also need to ensure that transfers fit in with other arrivals (which sometimes does necessitate a wait at the airport).
If you are travelling with infants please make sure that you request a car seat if one is required specifying either front facing, rear facing or booster seat. Infants are charged the standard fee for their return transfer as detailed below and we are pleased to provide car seats free of charge.
This service must be pre-booked and pre-paid in advance of your holiday.
Our transfer charges are:
- Geneva or Chambery Airport – resort return – £110 per person / single – £55 per person
- Grenoble or Lyon Airport – resort return – £130 per person (4 people minimum on same flight) – single £65 per person

Transfers from the airport
The airports that we collect from are:
- Grenoble **
- Lyon **
If you arrange to fly to another airport then we will be unable to provide a return airport transfer for you.
** Please note that a minimum of 4 people must be travelling together on the same flights for us to provide transfers for Grenoble or Lyon airports (please speak to our UK office to confirm that a transfer from Grenoble or Lyon is possible before booking your flights).
Please check with our UK office before making your flight bookings if your arrival or departure times are outwith 9.30am – 6.30pm on the Saturday. If you book flights outwith these times then we are unable to guarantee you an airport transfer.
Please bear in mind that our minibus transfers are typically only available for flights landing between 9.30am – 6.30pm on Saturdays.
If you wish to book a flight which lands earlier than 9.30am then we are happy to meet you at 9.30am and you can enjoy a coffee in the airport lounge whilst waiting (no additional surcharge would apply).
For arrivals after 6.30pm then a surcharge in addition to the transfer charge (as detailed above) will apply if we are able to arrange a transfer for you up until 8.00pm. After 8.00pm or if we were unable to provide a transfer between 6.30pm – 8.00pm then a private transfer, at your cost, would be required. However, if we were unable to arrange this we would ask you to make your own arrangements for travel to resort from the airport.
Our first minibuses leave resort around 5.30am/6.00am and our last minibus leaves resort around 1.00pm to return guests to the airport for their homeward flights.
For flights departing later in the evening your transfer would still depart around 1.00pm. If you wish a later return transfer then please check with the UK office if this can be provided at a surcharge in addition to the transfer charge (as detailed below).
Please note that for returns to the various airports we will always leave a generous amount of time for the transfer journey, check-in and onward transit through the airport.
It should be noted that as a result of any delay owing to accident, weather, guest lateness or any other incident out of the control of skivo2, then skivo2 will not be liable for any additional costs incurred due to missed flights.
Transfers from the train station
If you decide to travel by train then we collect and return to Moutiers Salins de Bains train station to coincide with the twice daily arrival and departure times of the Eurostar.
Please note that our collection time on Saturday morning from Moutiers train station is 7.15am. The overnight Euorstar arrives around 5.30am and there are cafes where you can wait and have a coffee. We would then be delighted to take you to resort and to your chalet for breakfast.
If you are arriving during the day in to Moutiers train station then you are able to either catch the ski bus to Courchevel or take a taxi.
If you are a small group we can arrange a private transfer to and from the airport. Cost is £440 one way for the minibus for Geneva and Chambery airports and £520 one way for the minibus for Grenoble or Lyon airports. Please contact our UK sales office if you are interested in this type of transfer.
These prices are based on the provision of an 8 seater minibus.
Late departures from the chalet
If you wish to ski on your day of departure you are welcome to use a wc in the chalet to change out of your ski gear at the end of skiing. A shower room is left available until 2.30pm if you wish to shower but needs to be prepared for the new incoming guests at this point.
