It’s important to realise that your journey from Geneva Airport to Champagny-en-Vanoise will take you to a very high altitude. This can present its own potential complications.
Geneva airport sits at 430m, while Champagny-en-Vanoise ski resort sits at an altitude of 1,250m. Some passengers can experience mild discomforts, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness. That can be symptoms of the change in air pressure. Particularly young children are often those who are feeling unwell.
When you combine this air pressure change with steep, serpentine roads, the journey can be difficult for some people. If needed, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
It’s not the nicest feeling in the world when you are not well, but the incredible beauty of the mountains can be the perfect medicine for you.

At Alps2Alps, our main goal is to offer amazing value transfers to all ski resorts in the Alps. We like to take a transparent approach to price structure. We take a number of factors into consideration when calculating our quotes. These factors include:
The number of people travelling
The day and time you travel
Any discounts available
When calculating fares, we start with our standard price and then reduce this based on the factors mentioned above. All of the above will only ever result in our base-rate for ski transfers going down – we never over-inflate our prices.
Your transfer quote will also depend on vehicle availability, transfer schedule, vehicle utilisation and additional costs such as road tolls and parking charges.
By travelling midweek you'll enjoy lower prices, spend less time stuck in traffic and will have more time for ski. For these reasons we strongly recommend travelling midweek. A midweek transfer can cut your costs by up to an unbelievable 60%! More discounts are available for travelling off-season and off-peak.
