Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Looks like Alpskibus has been rolled into Altibus. alpskibus.com leads to a dead website, and while you can find a current timetable with the Alpskibus logo, it's all part of Altibus - the schedules are exactly what you'll see anywhere else on Altibus' website and booking is also done via Altibus' main reservation system.
So probably better to rename those references, to Altibus.

I've fully updated the table for 2019/20 - link in first post.

Generally prices have stayed fairly similar to last year - though I've noticed some companies tweaking their rates to make them more similar to competitors. The southern French Alps still lead the way in cheapest transfers - just 6 euros each way to handful of resorts from Nice airport!

The new companies / name changes mentioned in the last few posts have been incorporated. A few Pyrenean resorts are also now included.

There's a public bus (No.92) from very close to Nice airport (like 10 mins on foot, or 3 mins on a tram) that will get you to Isola or Auron for 1.50Euro each way!

@denfinella, I used the very accessible https://www.thetrainline.com/ website to buy tickets from Geneva to Bourg st Maurice and hence Les Arcs. I'm over 60 so I get the tickets at a discount. The normal fare is £30.66 each way. It is a bit more expensive from Lyon. These transfers are available every day of the week and every week of the year

They are not quick or reliable but they are cheep.

Wow, what a great resource! Kudos for all the hard work.

I'm looking for shared transfers from Chambery > Courchevel next Feb and Altibus have just told me on live chat that they're no longer operating out of Chambery. Anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks @denfinella, for the effort to build and maintain this list. This has opened up some resorts with options I didn't know about.

Thanks @silentice. I haven't actually updated since the start of the pandemic, but might do for the coming season...

@denfinella, I’ve just come across this via the thread about resorts accessible by train, I’m going solo this season so reducing transfer costs is key, many many thanks in advance.

@ck22, I could understand that Altibus won't be operating out of Chambery now. But in February?? They don't normally release winter timetables until about November. No shuttles from Chambery would make accessing Maurienne and Tarentaise resorts more tricky - probably have to use the train and then a local transfer

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

For years I've struggled to find shared transfers to Cervinia, does any guru here know which company run this route please?
