Poster: A snowHead
just booked some easy jet flights to geneva for a quick dash to the slopes last week in feb , got max 2andhalf days ski time with my son , we've been to chamonix and pds loads and he's keen to try somewhere new , so just after a few good ideas for us , it will be all about the ski/board time so ski in ski out and short transfer time is paramount , but also we both like challenging terrain with long runs , any advice most wellcome

I think that's Paris holidays so a few days accommodation could be a problem. You could stay in Sallanches within easy reach of a range of possibilities including St Gervais, Flaine and Combloux.

les Carroz / Grand Massif? https://winter.lescarroz.com - 1hr from Geneva
Verbier is maybe closer than you think - just under 2 hours, great terrain.

@Dabber, In peak French holiday season you might have better luck in Switzerland as pointed out by @pam w, a friend who is a boarder really rated Leysin for a short break though I can't say I've been.

Les Contamines would be my first choice. Nice old French Savoie village with good skiing. Also not yet discovered by the TOs.

Les Diablerets / Glacier 3000... even on a powder day the glacier will be quiet. Prices slightly higher compared to France but not a massive difference (lets face it this isn't a cheap hobby!). If you can get cheap flights to Basel then Engelberg is also great and an easy/cheap 2hr train ride away

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

The original poster has already booked flights to Geneva so Basel won't be of much interest I'm afraid. And Engelberg is much easier from Zurich as there's no railway station at Basel airport. Direct train to Lucerne and change there for the Engelberg Express! Very Happy

Will be interested if you find any accommodation in a French resort that week, let alone ski in/out. ...

Leysin is really easy to get to by train from Geneva and is a fun place for a couple of days. Likewise Villars.

As mentioned above, Glacier 3000 is fantastic on a powder day (weekend!)

Stay in Sion....train ride from Geneva and local bus up/ down daily to Nendaz.....cheap way to ski 4V. Or same with Martigny for direct access to Verbier.

@Dabber, very interesting. And I hadn't clocked that you were referring to "current" searching.

When we started renting our apartments there would have been nothing available - but that was 12 years ago. Still not a huge choice compared to what you'd see in low season though. But I guess Booking.com and AirBnB are having that effect.

Les Carroz. Be prepared to get up early each morning, ask me (and no doubt, other LC afficionados) about q avoidance if you decide to visit. It’s a lovely little village.
