Les Menuires is a French ski resort in the Belleville valley of Les Trois Vallées. Known for its distinctive modernist architecture, Les Menuires was created in the mid-'60s after the prowling success of Courchevel ski resort, and to create new high-altitude ski areas. Low and behold, Les Menuires then became the highest ski resort in Europe.
Our hassle-free airport transfers get you from plane to piste in one easy and comfortable trip. Discover everything you need to know about your journey in this guide to booking a reliable Alps transfer; Geneva Airport to Les Menuires.
Geneva ski transfer time to Les Menuires 3 Valleys is approximately 3 hours, though this may change significantly depending on the date and time of travel.
Les Menuires 3 Valleys is the largest ski area in the world with connections from international airports, so you can expect some traffic when travelling at high times.
There are two main routes that our drivers will take from Geneva to Les Menuires 3 Valleys; the N201 to Annecy or the A40 via Avenue de Genève.
The first and most likely route to your destination is:
Geneva Airport - N201 - N508 to Albertville - N90 to Moutiers - mountain road D117 to Les Menuires.
The first route is quicker, shorter, has less traffic and offers beautiful views. However, if traffic is particularly bad on the N201, your driver will try the following:
Geneva Airport - Avenue de Genève - A411 - E712 to Annecy - D1212 - D109 to Ugine - D117 to Saint-Martin-de-Belleville.
We will always ensure that you have a smooth and comfortable airport transfer. We strongly recommend travelling midweek to cut down on your journey time and guarantee more time on the slopes; you can also save money with our cheap midweek ski transfer.
It’s important to remember that Les Menuires is the highest ski resort in Europe, so you will be at a very high altitude throughout your ski holiday. This can present its own potential complications.
Geneva airport sits at 430m and the main village of Les Menuires 3 Valleys is at 1850m, so passengers sometimes experience discomforts such as nausea, headaches and dizziness.
When you combine this air pressure change with steep, serpentine roads, the journey can be difficult for some people. You can always ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable or pause the journey whenever you need.
Feeling ill isn't ideal, but the beautiful views are sure to be the perfect medicine!
Les Menuires 3 Valleys ski area is located in the Vallée des Belleville, and since it sits at an altitude of 1850m, it guarantees a longer snow season than many places. So if you're a ski fan who loves shredding on fresh snow, this could be your ideal ski destination.
Les Menuires is world-class. It offers a wide choice of ski and non-ski activities, such as mountain biking on snow and tobogganing on snow, so you can always find the fun, whatever mood you're in.

We offer two types of airport transfers from Geneva Airport; private and shared.
If you're on a trip with friends, a large family group or even just a smaller group of skiers wanting the most comfortable journey; a private airport transfer is for you.
A private vehicle means you don't have to wait for fellow passengers to arrive, a dedicated driver will meet you at arrivals and accompany you to your vehicle, and you have the freedom to stop en route to the resort to pick up some essentials or soak up the scenery.
If cutting costs is a priority, look into a shared transfer. Shared journeys are our cheapest option but no less reliable.
Your trip will be shared with another party of skiers heading in the same direction, which could mean waiting for them to arrive at Geneva Airport. However, we do try our best to coordinate our scheduling to keep the waiting to a minimum.
We'll keep this simple. Booking a private transfer to Les Menuires instead of using public transport is more comfortable, more reliable, less waiting and the freedom to make the journey your own.
