Best way to travel from Paris to Meribel for short ski trip

Hi - I am treating my daughter to a short ski vacation for her 21st birthday. We are traveling from Paris to Meribel. What is the best way to travel and how long is the trip? We will not have a car, so we will need transfer from airport or train station to resort. We are traveling 2/24 -2/27. Thank you in advance for your suggestions. Also, any advice on where to rent ski equipment? Merci!!

Get the TGV (Gare de Lyon to Moutiers) and a taxi (pre-book) from Moutiers to your hotel or apartment.

SlideCandy for ski hire.

Kind regards

It's too bad you didn't buy these train tickets 3 months in advance when prices were the cheapest. A one way fare (if purchased today) from Paris to Moutiers Salins Brides les Bains on February 24th will cost between 88€ and 95€. The journey takes between 5-1/2 to 6 hours and most trains require at least one transfer, although there currently is a direct train at 7:49 that takes just over 5 hours.To check train schedules and prices and to buy your tickets use the website www.capitainetrain.com.

You'll find plenty of ski shops to rent ski equipment in Meribel or in any other ski resort village. You can look at the tourist office website for Meribel for more info:

There is info on the website about transport in the area:
