Access to Les Menuires by carThe resort of Les Menuires is close to the town of Moûtiers, situated in the department of Savoie, in the Northern Alps. It takes 2h30 from Lyon, 1h40 from Grenoble and 1h20 from Chambéry.
Once you reach Moûtiers, you have just a 27km drive on mountain roads. The road is made safe with regular winter maintenance. You should, however, equip your car with snow tyres, snow chains or sleeves.
When you arrive at the resort, in most cases you can drop off passengers and luggage outside your accommodation. Once you have unloaded you must park your vehicle in one of the car parks. You can then let your car rest throughout your holiday and use the free shuttle buses that run from district to district and between the resorts.

Mandatory winter equipment
In order to increase user safety by reducing the specific risks associated with driving on snowy or icy roads, it is mandatory to equip your vehicle with winter tires or to have removable anti-skid devices (chains or snow socks) throughout the Savoie department from November 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023.
This regulation also aims to avoid blockage situations in mountainous regions, when vehicles not equipped find themselves across lanes, unable to get out of the way, immobilizing an entire traffic axis.
Free outdoor car parks can be found in every district of the resort.
Once you arrive in Les Menuires, you can give your car a rest as you won’t be needing it during your stay. Free shuttle buses run between the different sectors and between resorts.
If you prefer your vehicle to be sheltered, you can book one of our parking lots or garages online.
