With access to Meribel and Courchevel, the variety of terrain is huge. Val Thorens has its own snowboard park which is right near the town. Be aware that It can be very cold here at night and the drive up from Moutiers takes around 45 minutes on a good day.
Lyon Airport is situated 15kms east of the city. There are numerous arrival and departure gates in the airport but the majority of UK flights, including all of Easyjet's, arrive at gate 10 (terminal 3). Whilst Lyon Airport is considerably further away than Geneva or Chambery the route is almost entirely on motorway making for fast transfer times. Having said that the motorway can get vey busy during French holidays with delays of 1-2 hours.
