Ouibus to st gervais

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi all

I have a specific question regarding ouibus and drop off point. If anyone has used this service, we are staying at the hotel la Regina and are looking at transfer from geneva airport to st gervais. Can anyone advise how far is the journey from the ouibus drop off to the hotel. Is it walking distance, or will we need to arrange further transfer via taxi etc?
Also is there a hire shop close by to la Regina which you would recommend?

Thanks all Very Happy

the big bus from the airport , stops at the intermarche supermarket in Passy & then everyone swaps to the smaller minibus type buses that go separate ways, St Gervais is the first stop just at roundabout at start of the new bridge, from there you have approx. 500 meter walk to the hotel through the village. I would say you would be fine to walk.
If you to much luggage to walk just wait 5 minutes & jump on one of the free ski buses that do the rounds of the village & it will drop you 20 meter from hotel.
Le Regina is nice, when we have to many friends over they use it.
I recommend my Friend to use the Nerey Glisses (or something like that) hire shop over old bridge on way to gondola, picking up your hire gear before going up to Bettix means you don't have to leave the gondola house for second up lift, or if queues big you can bail out right down to the fast 6 man chair. they also have a heated store room 100 yards from gondola where you can leave your hire gear meaning you can walk back to hotel in normal shoes.
Hope you enjoy StG, it is a great place & ski area.. cant wait we are over from Friday........

Thanks so much @Jonny996, that's really helpful. I think we will walk the distance. It's only me and my other half. Kids staying at home with grandparents. We are in st gervais 8-12 Jan, so just finalising bits and pieces now. The tip about the storage is useful too. I believe we are best to avoid Bettix at ski school times?

@Debra, Yes, you don't want to be getting on the bubble from Bettix up at 10.00 or 13.30 but to be fair once you are up the classes disperse quickly & the queues at that time should be minimal.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@Debra, make sure bus is taking you to St Gervais & not dropping you at St Gervais La Fayette

@Jonny996, thanks we have booked geneva to La Fayette and then onwards to the roundabout at st gervais, where we are going to walk. Arriving on Monday. Looking forwards to it. Hopefully enough snow to keep us entertained for a few days.

@Jonny996, , love st gervais. Snow at mid station but not at resort. The snow is brilliant up top. A little packed and slight ice further down. Very very quiet. Not had to que for any lifts. We will be back. Enjoy your stay.

@Jonny996, This is not so important but the oui bus now goes to the gare at la fayet to change and meet up with the minibusses .The route up to les contamines is now not as frequent as it has been in the previous two years

@brock, thanks, will let people know, we only get bus to StG so Les C doesn't affect me but I know Jedster will be.
@snowheader, the home run was open on 3rd when I was last out, but its a tricky red & as its normally the last run of the day my old legs are past it, so I gondola it down.
