Go to the gig, life is too short. I wouldn't tell you or the kids to lie as its too easy to get caught out on social media. Mrs BB works in a school and facebook is her first port of call if kids are absent from school.

@Paul Chittenden, if you have snow tyres, I think you would be ok for Morzine in march not to have chains. The forecasted FL is around 2000m for next weekend dropping to around 800m late on Monday night. Reality is usually worse than the forecast so pack an umbrella.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

My other half reports some of the best snow ever on piste this morning, around Morzine and Les Gets and Chatel. After 25 years finally in the right place at the right time :D

@DJL, did Bernex this morning and not two many people about. Fresh snow at the top but really really sticky towards the car park. Resort shutdown at 2 pm and now the wind has really got up. Lots of tree debris on the roads so glad to be back in the flat. . Buckets of snow up high.

@WindOfChange, Yes, been looking at the forecast for next week and if it does snow as forecast then pistes with trees will be a good choice. Bernex or CdA will get my money. PLJ/PDS if the sun shines.

@bambionskiis it was incumbent on the insurer to positively determine that the client did not want to continue the insurance policy... Interesting. I have received multiple emails from Aviva telling me my insurance is about to run out to the final one which says it has run out and either call them to continue or make sure you have alternative cover.

^^ This. Once drove a BMW 3 series to the Alps and vowed never again. Following year the hire car was a BMW 1 er which was the 'only one they had' but fitted with winter tyres. Opened my eyes to the effectiveness of winter tyres. And there are 4x4's and 4x4's , choose carefully or you will be no better off than in the Merc.

Pissing down at the pre la joux car park at 9 this morning with a worsening forecast for the day and a fl above 2000m, so didn't bother getting out the car just to get wet. Decathlon this afternoon to spend the money we saved on the pass. :(

Coming from the East (Valais) I always fill up at the "La Cote" services on the E62/E25. Fill it right up and drive gently and it will still show full at the airport. Had a discussion with the Avis rep on returning a car at GVA, who said that it didnt matter what the gauge showed but if they had to put more than a litre of fuel into the car we would be charged the full 80 EUR refuelling charged. We then got back into the car , drove down the road and topped the fuel up.

Rule #1 is never tell the accommodation that you are a stag party or they will cancel the booking. The ones I have been on have been described as walking expeditions :D , so this is probably a 'BASI level one course' . If you are worried about it now I would cancel/forget about it, as you will only worry more, the closer you get to departure.

My theory is that the week you have chosen has a number of benefits, namely it will have snowed by then (unlike Xmas), its generally cold sometimes too cold and its the last week you can ski crowd free before the vacances start. Its been our preferred week for Chatel during the last 25 years and I ve never been overly worried about rain. But..... it is the mountains :)

take the hamsters with you ?...for the cost and faff of an hour each way every day surely that's worth consideration ?? Yes, put them inside your gloves to keep your hands warm. Otherwise from Corsier, Thollon, Bernex, Abondance or Chapelle D'Abondance. My preference would be Bernex, if the snow is good down to the car park, lots of easy runs, three chairlifts (so you dont have to use the buttons), two restaurants at the top, plenty of ski hire and with great views of the lake and Mont Blanc. Check snow here http://www.bernex.fr/webcam scroll down for conditions at the car park. Thollon and Bernex will be very busy at weekends if the weather is good and at half term

I usually buy mine in the morning before I get on the lift. Ditto, look out of window, assess weather, decide the days location. Bright sunny day, PDS pass, high winds , stick to Chatel, low cloud, local tree lined resort, rain, go shopping in Thonon.

Like what @snowdave, said. I use rentalcars dot com to compare prices then book direct with one of the majors. Less argy bargy at the pickup desk. Also if you fly Easy then the majority of passengers have hired via the airline website with Europcar and that will be the one with the long queue when you get there :(

For anyone travelling to or from the Dover ferries or Eurotunnel, the M20 is shut both directions due to a bridge collapse. Doesnt look like any easy fix so expect it to last a while http://www.kentonline.co.uk/malling/news/bridge-collapses-on-motorway-101496/

Migrants again blocked the approach roads to Calais port and eurotunnel last night. Since the increased the lorry holding areas inside the port the migrants are blocking roads to slow the lorries but this affects the tourist traffic as well. This and the heightened security concerns regards the ferries means I am avoiding the area and reverting back to flying so I with the OP on this one

@Ricklovesthepowder, The storm is late Sunday night, early Monday morning with winds easing into Monday afternoon so you should be ok. The biggest problem is trying to get the ferries in and out of Dover harbour. When it gets really bad you find yourself going around in circles in the English Channel

@under a new name Should have dropped him at Aigle and let SBB take the strain., good in theory, I did this in January as I didnt fancy the Monday morning rush hour drive to GVA to drop off my mate for his flight. Sadly was all going well until someone decided to throw themselves in front of his train around Morges. He was put on a taxi to GVA but still missed his flight to Copenhagen.

@Neil Neige, Yes, they reclassified the run from a red to a black after a number of injuries were incurred, I guess to pursuade some skiers to take the gondola down. Thollon is great little resort, but at lot of the businesses are still run by the Viven organisation and their extended family. I think the run was originally made to allow some of the new properties being built by the prime developer in the area to be described as ski out ski in. ;-)
