Driving up the wiggly mountain road -6 degrees. Good times!!
Sat nav says 30 minutes to beer!!
What a nightmare though, there were NO holidays from east midlands for 4th feb at all. So i looked at Birmingham. Crystal, Inghams, Neilsen....all nothing for birmingham. Sure i could fly from gatwick but that would give me a big drive just to the airport. I don't like that.
Anyway after hours on the phone we managed to get Iglu to find flights into Geneva with, wait for it, Inghams! WTF...they told me they were fully booked.
So then came the choice of resorts. Les arcs or La plagne were my first choice but from geneva it is a 3+ hour transfer which we didn't want. And the guy on the phone says that the french drivers stop for a break every 2hrs du to their working arrangements which meant dragging it out even more.
So in the end i said 'How about the Grand Massiff area" and now we are booked for Flaine.
Now i know, before you all start, it is pig ugly but that doesn't bother me. I am a Skier not a landscape painter. And the short transfer (1hr) is right up my street. So i am happy.
So, have you been, tell me about Flaine.
Started getting stuff out and ready today!
Have a great time. Still on the hunt for our hols in March. Do you think that Inghams allocate a certain amount of flights etc to Iglu ski then, which is why Iglu had something but Inghams didn't?
Anyway, in answer to your question, I haven't even been to Flaine, sure it will be great anyway.
