The history of St Gervais dates back to Roman times, but the good news is you won’t need a chariot to get yourself in and out of the resort this season! We’ve put together this mini-guide to highlight the closest airports to St Gervais and the kinds of transfer times you can expect. We understand that ideally you’d like to spend as little time as possible on the roads and maximise your time on the slopes – all it takes is a little inside knowledge to make sure you book the right routes and the right services. Arm yourself with the following information and you can ensure your trip to St Gervais is all it can be!
Part of the Ski Pass Mont Blanc area, St Gervais has on its doorstep a staggering 490 marked runs. Even in the confines of the resort itself there’s a solid 65km to choose from with 27 ski lifts keeping things moving. St Gervais also has a reputation for serving up truly eclectic après-ski activities doused in local flavour. So whether you’re looking to dine in style, take the family for a wild night out or sip cocktails with the highest of high-brow visitors, St Gervais has so much to offer above and beyond the norm.
The privileged position of St Gervais means that you can get into and out of the resort via a small arsenal of international airports served by budget airlines. What’s more, Sion and Chambery are both not much more than an hour’s drive away from the resort centre and so open up St Gervais for short stays and weekends. Geneva is also a safe bet at about 90 minutes away and is often the best for finding very cheap flights from across Europe.
In the event of bad weather or when traffic conditions are heavy, the following times can fluctuate quite severely. As such, we always advise adding plenty of extra time onto your journey when you have important connections to make or flights booked.
The size of St Gervais and the surrounding region means you’ll always be able to find your way in using public transport from the closest cities if you wish. However, it is largely impossible to find direct door-to-door services unless you book an organised transfer from the airport, which means the likelihood of connection, delays and multiple stops to slow down your journey.
Book with an airport ski transfer service and enjoy the fastest transfer times, the lowest prices and exceptional comfort to boot!
