I'm planning to go to tignes around that time but haven't booked anything yet. I don't know if I'll be driving the whole way there, or flying & hiring a car as yet ... I'm going to have a look to see what flight options there are for Chambery... maybe split some of the cost???

Worth keeping in touch anyway. Incidentally are you travelling there the previous Tuesday?

Hi Exo

We are driving down Thursday 23rd.
My son is flying back Tuesday 28th and the rest of us are driving back later.
Looks like I will drive to Chambery airport from Tignes Tuesday am and will have room for 3 others if anyone wants to help with cost to ease my pain at missing the snow!

Searched for alternatives so I woudn't miss the skiing but only reasonable option seemed to be train from Bourg but I couldn't see if it goes to the airport or the town.

If it's any use let me know.

A friend of mine used said train from BSM this christmas; found it to be pretty good, and cheap, but it does go into the town not the airport. There is, however, a pretty regular bus (every half an hour I think) from the station to the airport.

He thought it a pretty good set up. If it's of interest I can badger him for more details next time I see him.

Hi and thanks for reply
I guess I'll end up driving as only train to meet plane at right time would leave 8.20 and have several hours sitting around.

Also I'd probably get no end of grief from my wife if I put him on a train just to get a few more hours skiing.

It better not snow that Monday night!

Company on the journey welcome, either direction, if anyone looking for a lift.
