Help - Three Valleys to Les Deux Alps

Help!!!

My unaccompanied 17 year son old needs to get from The Three Valleys to Les
Deux Alps on the 30th December.  Any ideas how (train, coach, hitch-hiking,
lift)?  Too young to drive and cannot speak French (but German is OK).

He's skiing with the rest of the family for a week until the 30th, but has
just been asked to join the Army skiing in Les Deux Alps for three weeks for
next to nothing, starting the day we fly back to the UK. He can go but has
to work his own way from one resort to the next on the 30th.

Any advice would be very gratefully received.

3V - 2 Alpes about 200 kms, 2 and a half hour's drive in total....

It's possible to get from Moutiers to Grenoble by train, changing in
Montmelian or Chambery, about a journey of 2 to 2 and a half hours. There
are trains leaving Moutiers at 11.11 a.m., getting to Grenoble at 1339 (via
Chambry) or 1324 (via Montmelian). Don't know about the last leg of the
journey to 2 Alpes, should think there would be a bus, but Grenoble/2 Alpes
is a good 45 minutes' drive (69 kms).....

I think the best solution is to go by train from Moutier to Grenoble
then by bus from Grenoble to Les Deux Alpes.

train schedules can be found on www.sncf.fr

bus schedules can be found on www.vfd.fr (but this site seems to be
under construction for the moment...)
