transport from London to Val Thorens


I am looking to travel to Val Thorens in mid March - currently am open to two options of getting there:

1. Fly from London to Grenoble, and catch a bus from Grenoble airport to Val Thorens

2. Ski train from London to Moutiers, and then the Altibus to Val Thorens

Has anyone done either before? Also, any issues on punctuality/safety/cost savings?

As far as I know there are no direct buses from Grenoble to Val Thorens, which means a change in Moutiers whichever option you choose. Bens Bus runs a service from Grenoble to Moutiers - I have used them before and they are good, but they will wait for the planes they serve so their punctuality depends on that of incoming flights. The train is quite punctual in France in my experience.

Both end up at the Gare Routier in Moutiers from which there is a regular (if sometimes ratehr busy) service to Val Thorens - see valthorens.com/pdf/navettes_horaires_h2011.p… There were big queues for tickets for these buses when I transferred through Moutiers in early February.

Lot of information on getting to Val Thorens including by bus and plane can be found here: skigb.com/val-thorens-travel-by-plane.html

If you could fly to Geneva or Chambery it would give you more options on the bus side.
