get some trains and then a bus from Bourg St Maurice (nearest train station) to Tignes.

from geneva airport you'll have to change trains at Geneve Cornavin, Bellegarde, and Chambery.

from lyon you'll have to change at Chambery.

from Chambery you won't have to change train but you'll probably have to get a bus from the aiport to the train station.

SNCF website can be used in English, generally its best to search train by train (ie. geneva to bellegarde, not geneva to bourg st maurice) because the website is a bit dodgy when it comes to journeys with connections.

ha ha

i phoned them up once to their equivalent of national rail enquiries, and they helpfully told me 'if I were you I'd drive there, it would be quicker'
