This can be a reasonable option, especially if you can fill the car. All airports have car hire desks, as does Bourg St Maurice, if you want to make it a one way journey. You should always book in advance, and specify if you need snow chains and/or a ski rack. Directions to the chalet in Tignes Les Brevieres can be found here.
IMPORTANT: Please note that the Col Du Petit St. Bernard is closed during the winter months. Some route finder websites and car GPS Sat Navs do not recognise this and propose a route through the Mont Blanc tunnel and the Col Du Petit St. Bernard mountain pass – IGNORE this routing and opt for one via Annecy – Albertville – Moutiers – Bourg St. Maurice to Tignes Les Brevieres or the motorway towards Chambery then Albertville etc.
Private and Shared Taxis
There are several private companies that specialise in taxi and minibus transfers from Geneva or Lyon airport to the chalet.
