Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knew or could give advice on what they feel are the best resorts for borders which are accessible from geneva via public transport. I am planning to go somewhere between 15th and 22nd of December

I have to fly out of there as is only place I can find flies to newcasle airport in UK.

Thanks a lot.

There is a bus from Geneva to Tignes (Espace Killy). Around 95 euros return.

Take a look at the Swiss transport website www.sbb.ch (which can be switched to English). This has integrated timetables between rail, bus and télécabines. Set the departure to 'geneva airport' or «aeroport gèneve» and then a selected Swiss location: Verbier & Veysonnaz (Quatre Valées), Champéry (Portes du Soleil), Crans-Montana and, of course, Zermatt all have good public transport links. There's a special return available for £52 which is only for foreigners from any port of entry to a single destination and back (within a month). As you'd expect, the earlier in the day you arrive at Geneva Airport, the more options you have.

And if you're willing to share accomodation, and want a low-cost option, take a look at www.thebunker.ch which is a converted nuclear bunker in the Verbier sports centre complex offering cheap accomodation and skipasses.
