Are there ski bus shuttles?🚍
To get to the slopes of the Grand Massif and the Haut-Giffre Nordic Domain (Col de Joux Plane and Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval), skiers and walkers can take the free winter skibus shuttles.

Find the Blue and Yellow Line timetables for the week of December 16 to 22 here.

To relieve the Grand Massif Express gondola, we recommend that experienced skiers use the new Vercland gondola (10 seats) to reach the ski area.

Beginners or ski lessons can access the ski area by the Grand Massif Express gondola.

Prefer the shuttles for Nordic activities (snowshoeing, cross-country skiing) too! Here is the live information for the filling up of the parking lots of the Col de Joux Plane and the Fer à Cheval.
