January 06, 2012 at 09:37

Chambery Airport is one of the busiest airports in Europe during winter because it’s the gateway to many of France’s top skiing destinations. Many of them are within an hour’s drive of the airport.


Courchevel is around 60 miles from the airport so you could be hitting the slopes at one of France’s most exclusive resorts just a couple of hours after landing. Courchevel has been rated as one of the top ten skiing resorts in the world by many winter sports magazines.  

La Norma

If you’re looking for something a little less exclusive with wonderful slopes and facilities then La Norma is a good choice. This car-free resort affords breathtaking views over the Maurienne Valley.


Manigod is a large resort in the Haute Savoie region with 17 lifts and 26 pistes. It’s a great resort for beginners and snowboarders but expert skiers wouldn’t find the terrain very challenging.  


Valloire has expanded and grown in popularity over the years. Today it’s one of France’s liveliest and best ski resorts, branching out across the Maurienne Valley. 

Lime Green Ski

These are just a few of the numerous ski resorts located within 60 minutes’ drive of Chambery Airport. To take advantage of the airport’s ideal location, book your cheap flights to Chambery at
