@sandytoesdevon, welcome to Snow Heads - you would be better putting this request in The Piste section than here. In the meantime, try www.findtransfers.com and post a request. However, LDA is quite a distance from Geneva so you're unlikely to find anything cheap, dependent on your expectations Good luck
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@AndyLin, nobody can see your email as security for you. You can either send it to @Tilly001, via PM (personal message) by clicking on the plus sign next to your name, then clicking PM, or ask her to send you one. Hope it works out guys 👍
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@AndyLin, @Tilly001, welcome to Snowheads - Andy, might it be worth asking the operator what the sole-use supplement would be, and then @Tilly001, can see if still feasible for her? Given you're under the cosh time-wise, and @Tilly001, is keen, that might solve the problem all around 👍

Ah - we flew into Innsbruck and it was around 2 hrs 20 on clear roads and a very pretty, plus easy, drive at that time of year.

@andybomb1, I was in Livigno over Easter weekend this year (14/15 April) and had excellent conditions with blue skies, sunshine, good snow until around 2 pm, then a bit slushy/heavy. None in the village on roads in, which made the drive easier. Good skiing there for the levels you're looking at

I have a number of clients on ABTA/ATOL packages, who had Monarch flights - so far, most have been reallocated, and the rest should be done by the end of this week. It was a busy few days for us, but it has been a nightmare in the TO offices.

@cameronphillips2000, not worth the risk for me; we had two separate Ryanair bookings several years ago, where they changed the flights, causing a great deal of hassle. One trip went ahead as it was (just about) worth it; the other had to be cancelled. The current cancellations, not just changes, must be causing huge disappointment and inconvenience to thousands of people. We're fortunate in that we can access two major airports and so have a choice - I won't choose Ryanair
And they're a friendly bunch.

Continuous rope thing with plastic covers attached every few feet, and serving the nursery slope in Zell am Ziller, early 80s. Not for the faint-hearted, as - if I didn't grab, and keep hold of, the plastic bit - the rope burnt through the palm of my gloves, over the week (although as a complete beginner I didn't know that wasn't normal......) The following year in Italy, the first lift was a button (not a t-bar) and I saw several people holding onto the disc and being dragged up the slope, due to not knowing how to use it. OK, I was one of them :oops:
You know it makes sense.

@dave_wick, group lessons may be trickier to organise for a short break, as they will usually be 6 days, 2 or 3 hours in the morning or afternoon. If you only want 3 or 4 days in total, you may only have private lessons available. The plus of this is that she will likely come on in ability and skills, very quickly. The negative is that she will be on her own with the instructor, no peers for camaraderie etc.,

@carettam, Before getting to your penultimate para, I was thinking 'Les Gets' so great minds! I think it could be ideal for your requirements, but Les Carroz too. St Gervais perhaps? There are some apartments at the base of the gondola - never been in them so can't comment on what they're like. St G is a nice town, very easily reached from Geneva, flattish walk from apartments to town pushing a buggy, some shops, cafes, restaurants etc., but the skiing is above town via the gondola, so no front de neige chocolate stops. Les Gets might be the best bet.

@Drunkenjoiner, good apres in AdH plus a Folie Douce on the slopes if that's their bag (fun experience even if just once....) You can ski in L2A for a day on the same lift pass nd - if funds allow - I can recommend the helicopter trip from one resort to the other. We loved it - cost was around 70 euros pp return and you get a good 5 hours or more of skiing. PM if you need any help with anything else :D

@surfcfc, welcome to Snowheads :sH: A 'fridge' is an indoor 'real' snow slope - there are a few dotted around the country - and it gives a more realistic experience than a dry slope. As an example http://www.chillfactore.com/ - this is in Manchester.

@CosmoJo, BTW - I am going to Montgenevre myself in January, but we are flying to Turin; if you CAN do that (you say Geneva is your only choice), that will be much better. The alternative is a train with a couple of changes from GVA, or paying for the transfer.
You know it makes sense.
Tue 30-05-17 12:08

@CosmoJo, it's a fair distance from GVA to Montgenevre - the distance (and the fact you are only 2 people) explains the costs involved. Given you're tied to the arrival airport and resort, you are stuck with whatever transfers are available (and good plus cheap don't always go together). Try posting a message on www.findtransfers.com to see what comes back to you - this site sends your request out to all their listed transfer companies, who will respond with an offer. There is a review system too, so you can see what others have rated the transfer service, plus (IME) all listed have to prove they are appropriately registered and insured. I've never heard of GetTransfer, so can't comment.

@rholligan, a slow cooker can be a great bonus - 10 minutes putting something together in the morning (browned cubes of beef, bag of prepped veg, stock), left on 'slow' or 'low' all day, and you come home to a very tasty hot meal; fab for cheaper cuts of meat (I think they're actually better cooked this away, than more expensive cuts). If you have a store of dried herbs and spices, so much the better. Any left-overs can be blitzed to make soup, or frozen for another day.

@JuJitsoup, the Durancia has a 'season ticket' type of thing to buy and it lasts for 12 months. In reality, you'll only use it the week you are there but is costs IIRC 80 euros for 10 hours, redeemable at any time. Haven't used it yet, but we will be there in January and one of our group is keen http://www.durancia.com/en/home-2/

If the Austrian TOs are anything like the French and Italian I am in the process of contacting, there may only be a skeleton staff (if any....) just now as many seem to be having a bit of a holiday post-end of season, and ahead of the summer season. Email them anyway and be prepared for a slow response, but then go back in a few weeks if nothing comes back to you

Update on this - am leaving Livigno this morning after 2 very busy days (1 with business, the 2nd skiing) and have been very impressed. Skied on Mottolino side in the morning, and Carosello in the afternoon - this was the opposite of @jilly, advice above, but the way it worked out as we had a local instructor to guide us for 1/2 a day and this was what worked for her. Considering it's mid-April, and there is no snow in the village or lower down the slopes, the conditions were great yesterday - morning was a bit icy, with lots of sugary artificial snow, but fine really, and the Carosello was great in the afternoon. Add in blue skies, sunshine and very few people, and it was a great day skiing. Legs are feeling it today though :shock: Setting off now back into Austria for a day/night in St Anton - not likely to be skiing but there are worse ways of spending the day :D
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@Lost123, are you self-catering or in a chalet? If the latter, many UK-run chalets can accommodate vegan diets, as long as they know in advance. If the former, sorry, but I do think you'll struggle with anything but the most basic foods.

BBC news have just said again (as per above) that it seems no-one was caught up as the avalanche spread across the blue piste, rather than straight down. Fingers crossed that's correct; no helicopters can take off as the visibility is so poor

I've booked (last week) flights to Turin from Manchester for late next January, with Jet 2; £109 pp return, no luggage booked yet. Good flight times and, having flown with Jet 2 several times in the past couple of years, had no problems.
