An interview with the owner of Whiterides
Owner Dan Barnett was a professional lorry driver in the UK before setting up Whiterides Airport Transfers ten years ago.
The company is based in Peisey-Nancroix, where Dan lives with his wife and son. Here’s what he had to say in an interview with Whitebeam Chalets.
What bought you to Peisey-Vallandry?
I love snowboarding and so I came to Les Arcs in winter 2003 as a ‘seasonaire’.
After I completed several seasons as a chalet host, unfortunately not with Whitebeam, I became a transfer driver for another company based here in The Alps. Something I really enjoyed.
For many winters I returned. Each summer I would go home to the UK to work as a truck driver, as I hold a Class 1 Haulage licence.
Being a keen mountain biker from a young age I soon found amazing singletrack in and around Peisey-Vallandry, which I used when I wasn’t snowboarding.
I was hooked, and soon made plans to move here. I love The Alps in both winter and summer.
Why would you recommend skiing in Peisey-Vallandry?
The skiing in Peisey-Vallandry is suited to all levels of skiers and boarders, so you will find easy green and blue runs, as well as steeper reds and blacks.
On a powder day, there are some great spots through the trees that run back down to Peisey-Vallandry village.
The lifts take you well above 2,000 metres, where you can then ski all the way down to Peisey-Vallandry, or you can choose to head over to Les Arcs and the rest of the resort.
Why would you recommend a private transfer to Peisey Vallandry?
Even if we are a little biased, private transfer is definitely the easiest way to get to resort! No changing transport, no lugging suitcases around. You don’t even have to worry about the driving.
With Whiterides, you’ll be greeted by your driver at the airport when you arrive and head off to resort as soon as you’re ready to go.
You sit back, relax whilst your driver takes you all the way to Peisey-Vallandry (we do airport transfers to many other resorts too).
There’s no waiting for other people, the transfer will be for your group only, and no stopping en route (unless you want to, of course).
When you arrive in Peisey village or Peisey Nancroix, you’ll be taken directly to Whitebeam Chalets and dropped as close as possible to the front door. What could be easier than that?
Which airport would you recommend flying into for a ski holiday in Peisey Vallandry?
We would recommend flying to Geneva, for holidays in Peisey. You’ll find the widest range of flights from the UK, at a sensible time of day. Driving time from Geneva to Peisey-Vallandry is approximately two-and-a-half hours.
The transfer route is picturesque – we go through the town of Annecy, along the shores of the Lake, then on to Albertville. From here, it’s a 45-minute drive up the mountains.
Thanks to Dan at Whiterides airport transfers for this information.
