Getting Here

There are a host of transport options to choose from depending on your budget, how long you want to spend traveling and your preferences for getting from A to Ski. 

By Plane

Christmas is an expensive time to fly anywhere, but there are ways you can keep your flight cost down. 

  • Book your flights early. Sounds obvious, but the closer we get to December the higher those prices soar. 
  • Get the first flight out and the last flight back. A 4:00am start doesn’t sound appealing but saving €200 does.
  • Clear your cookies. Honestly, it’s not a myth. Just do it. 
  • Have points? Use them. 
  • Use flight comparison sites and set up a price alert on your phone. 
  • If you can’t find the return flights you need, book two separate flights into one airport and out of another.

This is our closest airport and the one we recommend you fly to. There are multiple bus transfers that run to Les 2 Alpes from Grenoble and it takes just under two hours to get there. The easiest way to travel from the airport to Les 2 Alpes is via our partner transfer service, Ben's Bus. 

Lyon is a little further away, but only by 45 minutes. Transfer time is estimated at 2 hours 35 mins, and like Gernoble there are plenty of transfer options available. The easiest way to travel from the airport to Les 2 Alpes is via our partner transfer service, Ben's Bus. 

If you’re coming from further afield, Geneva will probably be the easiest airport for you to get to. Again, there are transfers running frequently and it takes around 3 hours. If you fly to ChambĂ©ry, it will only take you a couple of hours to get to Rise, however there are limited flights into and out of it. If you are flying into either of these airports, you will need to book private transfers through our partners at Whiterides or Ski Lifts.

By Coach

Coaches offer a great, affordable way of getting to A to B and are a good alternative to flying. Here are a few trips to consider before you book onto your next coach trip:

  • Search for deals. The big companies tend to always have offers on, so make sure you do your research. 
  • Use comparison sites like Comparabus to make sure you’re getting the best price.
  • Book in advance - like flying this can save you a small fortune. 
  • Travel off peak if you’re looking for the most cost effective journey.

You can now book a coach trip with National Express from your nearest collection point right to our doorstep. They run direct services to Rise from London and Birmingham, or you can use their journey planner to map your trip from pretty much anywhere in the UK.
