However, when I'm ski-ing I do fall OVER quite a bit - are we going to have a falling over rota as well?


Will we have a separate rotas, one for skiing & one for drinking

Hi Dave,
I have booked my flight back from Geneva to Gatwick with EasyJet on Sunday 20th January.

I want to ski all day first so I've booked the last flight back, which is leaving at 21-30 and arriving at 22-00 (which looks a little odd I know but it's because Switzerland is an hour ahead of us).

This flight cost me £47 including luggage. I've just checked now on the EasyJet website and it's gone up to £52. And when I first looked at it (when EasyJet released their flights a couple of weeks ago) it was only £40. So their prices are going up - presumably as they sell out of the cheaper tickets.

They have 8 flights from Geneva to Gatwick that day.

Your son could get the transfer bus the chalet is running, for £30 each way, or if he wants to ski/board for the extra day and there are enough of us who want to do this we could hire our own transport (Cat wants to ski the extra day as well).

And if he wants to keep his options open and doesn't have to be back in London early on Sunday he could book the last flight the same as me, and then if he decides to get the morning chalet coach he could spend the afternoon looking around Geneva or something (we did that once and it was great - the train station is in the airport and it's really easy to get into the city).

I looked at return flights with Swiss from London Heathrow a couple of weeks ago as well, and they were £110 return. I've just checked them again and they're now £155 return. So prices do seem to be on the up.

And, for some bizarre reason, when I looked at a single from Geneva to London with Swiss it was about £700!

Hi Brooksy,
If there's any drinking going on my job is usually to be the sensible one, and look after everyone else when they've had a bit too much

Edit
Now we're on a new page again I'd just like to remind everyone that we still have places on this holiday - details on the first page. If you're interested in coming would you please send me a pm or post on this thread.
Thanks,

Ally

Hi Dave,
This is what Bonjour say on their website:

The coach will collect guests on change-over days from flights arriving at Geneva airport up to 13.30 pm and return them the following Sunday for flights leaving after 11.00 am

The transfer takes about 3 hours (rather than 2 and a half hours) because the coach also goes to their chalets in Val d'Isere.
