The resort is serviced by two airports - the local Sion and the international Geneva, with destinations all over the world.
There is the super-efficient Swiss railway network that takes you to Martigny linked via the international rail network to London and Paris. Swiss national railway (SBB) times are on www.cff.ch. Travel on public transport in Switzerland is pretty easy.
There are a host of taxi firms that arrange transfers of varying degrees of luxury from shuttle buses at CHF 49 alpineexpress.com to the new prestige service www.alpinecab.com. If you want to combine thrilling views of the Swiss mountain scenery and a quicker journey, private helicopters are available for upwards of CHF 3,000 for an exclusive service from Geneva. A gondola takes you straight from the heliport to the heart of the resort. Shared helicopter services are also available at www.whitetracks co.uk
There is a public bus system within the resort with free shuttle buses every quarter of an hour. The resort is relatively compact and walkable. It is not car free but car use is restricted so walking in the centre is a pleasure.
