Travel Journalists? Eh? The same copy writers who tell you that the Ryanair flight you have booked is convenient for the city you are going to.

. Odd but that's how it seems to go! That would explain it. Could never understand why the on line system didn't match what was on the pass when I asked at the ticket office
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

There is some posts on here towards the end relating to Morgins. https://www.remontees-mecaniques.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=5883&st=1160 Doesn't look promising. On the plus side, Chatel appear to be updating things on the Torgon side.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

small third world airports insisted there was "fake luggage" which was put on carousels to reassure punters that something was happening. Certain I've seen that at Geneva, three suitcases appear on the belt and then nothing for 30 mins.

@kez, If its summer and daylight then worth getting off the autoroute to see the scenery. France on a Sunday will be shut so petrol will be self service from supermarkets so either fill up before leaving the autoroute or google supermarkets in any major town you will pass through. Cant see Geneva on a Sunday being a problem for traffic, just drive the through middle and then back out into France, (if coming from Ferney V - airport there was a thread on various routes) just remember signs for the autoroutes are blue in France but green in Switzerland.
And post your own questions...

@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.
You know it makes sense.

@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.

If anyone is transferring to or from Chatel this weekend, be aware that the road to Thonon is closed with a diversion in place. http://www.lemessager.fr/chablais/la-route-de-la-vallee-d-abondance-coupee-apres-un-ia923b926n176211

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 :(
