Default Best accessible resort

I'm looking for the easiest/best accessible resort by plane. Maybe something I can fly into in the morning and be on the slopes in a short time. Intermediate/expert but like groomed also. Probably fly in from Paris or Amsterdam.

Thanks......

Courcheval has its own airport. Otherwise Chambery and Innsbruck are
probably your best bet.

You could also try Turin or Geneva - both have a number of resorts around an
hour away. Of course if you're going from Paris try the train to Bourg St
Maurice and then Funicular (sp?) up to Les Arcs - train will generally be
less hassle than flying and no car hire or bus transfer required

Innsbruck is probably the best from that POV.

Nordpark is accessible direct from the city centre by funicular (about
10-15 minutes from the airport). And then there are several other ski
areas within about an hour, all covered by the Olympia Skiworld pass,
and free buses from the town centre.
