Skiing in Les Contamines
Les Contamines belongs to the mighty Mont Blanc skiing region, offering you access to 952km of downhill skiing, 490 individual pistes and 248 lifts.
This pretty and compact ski resort along with Montjoie’s divide themselves into two sectors that are fully interlinked. If you are like most skiers that visit Les Contamines, you want to head north to the main ski area using the ski bus.
You can access the slopes using two available gondolas, the first at La Ley is one kilometre away from the village and the second one, Le Pontet can be reached using the ski bus. This second gondola is usually less busy and travels a little up higher of La Ley’s lift, where it intersects with a third gondola. But at the top of the first two Gondolas, you are led to an area with slopes that are actually beginner friendly.
The third gondola drives you toward a mid-mountain location called le Signal. Slightly above le Signal, you can encounter more than 30 black and red runs mixed in with a few blues. It is safe to say that all the terrain is at a level of difficulty that can be mastered by intermediates, alas, despite being black and red runs, they don’t have that steep of a learning curve.

Airport transfer types to suit all budgets
Share the vehicle with other passengers with similar flights & destinations.
One of the most cost effective and efficient ways of getting to the resort.
Similar to a shared transfer, except this runs to a set timetable, so you're required to book a service that works for your flight times.
Generally not door-to-door but cheaper.
Book a driver and vehicle for your sole use.
No sharing with others, no waiting at the airport and a direct door-to-door service, with no additional stops en route.
Similar to a private transfer the only difference is that it is using a larger vehicle.
Perfect for larger groups wanting to travel together.
Exec & Limousine
Enjoy vehicles such as a top-of-the-range Mercedes minivan or an S-Class Mercedes limousine.
Like a private transfer, but with the additional benefit of travelling in style.
