/ transferring between resorts in the alps
thanks in advance for any help
Check out the regional bus services at TransIsere. I see the buses everywhere but have never used them.
La Plagne is above Bourg St Maurice which has a train station, so that might be worth looking at (as Chamonix has a train station too).
Don't even think about trains... local connections into and out of the Tarentaise are crap unless you are coming from Paris! (Getting to Geneva from Moutiers on the train takes about twice the drive time...).
I don't know of any bus services running directly between any of these resorts (and I am local - Vanoise-based) - best bet is probably to get a transfer from resort to Geneva and then a transfer from there onwards.
Transavoie buses could be worth a look (as opposed to transisere..).
If you can find someone willing to take you from VT to Geneva airport then you can either get one of the many shuttle services to Chamonix or try and blag your way on to another transfer coach. Same thing coming back and even if you can't find a transfer coach from Geneva to La Plagne, you'll find one Geneva to BSM and can get a bus / taxi from there to LP.
