There’s not much in the way of public transport between Chambéry and Chamonix, but the drive isn’t too long so you can hire a car or take a private transfer with Ski Lifts

Lyon Airport - 220 km / approx 2 hours

Other than hiring a car and driving you can take a private transfer with Ski Lifts as above

Turin Airport - 175 km / approx 2 hours
