St-Jean-de-Sixt is a gorgeous little ski resort in its own right, but it’s safe to say that almost everyone that heads here for a holiday is looking to make use of the massive Aravis ski area. And as the area is so big, there are dozens of access points and transport options for you to choose from which can become a little convoluted. Fear not though as we’re in your corner and have looked into all of the best options available to you to create this mini-guide. From the closest airports to St-Jean-de-Sixt to the shortest transfer times and so much more besides, if there’s a way of getting you where you want to be as fast as possible and for the lowest price, we can guarantee we’ve got it covered here!
On its own, St-Jean-de-Sixt is a very small resort in the French Alps situated at a height of 960 metres and with 5km of pistes to call its own. As such, it’s one of the quainter resorts you’ll come across and has that gorgeous small-town feel that’s often hard to find these days. But don’t worry if you were hoping for more, as St-Jean-de-Sixt forms part of the Aravis ski area which is frankly ginormous. In total you’ll find 158 pistes across the area, some of the most remarkable cross-country skiing and après-ski opportunities that are envy of the world!
Getting into and out of St-Jean-de-Sixt for a weekend or short break is easy – there are at least half a dozen airports that can see you in your boots and on the lifts in less than two hours! That being said, if you can find your way to Geneva Airport which should be easy enough, it takes less than one hour to get yourself in the thick of it. So even if you’ve got only a single weekend with a one-night stay to play with, St-Jean-de-Sixt really does have a ton to offer you! Other than this, choose Grenoble, Chambery or Lyon and you can’t go wrong!
If you head to St-Jean-de-Sixt via Geneva you will find plenty of bus and train services heading toward the area, but more often than not you will need to change once or twice along the way. What’s more, seats aren’t guaranteed, prices vary considerably and indirect services with plenty of stops can sometimes be painfully slow.
In order to make the most of whatever time you have on the slopes, we always recommend an organised airport transfer service directly to your resort where your safety, comfort and sanity are all held in high regard!
