Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:

Location: snowHeadLand
Resort: Megeve
Country: France
Domain: Monc Blanc area, I guess.
Author: Erica
Date: 17th - 20th Dec
Our holiday: Impromptu weekend break before Christmas for husband and wife (9 weeks skiing over the past 3 seasons - reasonable intermediates, both over 40)
Website :
Basics : 70km from Geneva, we flew EasyJet from Bristol. Excellent service by EasyJet - very efficient. The self service check-in at Geneva was a doddle.
Lift system : Gondolas, chairs etc. - all the usual
The terrain : Three ski areas - Rochebrune and Mont D'Arbois (linked by gondola) and Le Jaillet.
Miles upon miles of tree-lined reds and blues. Narnia!! True intermediate stuff. Longer runs from top to bottom than, say, Courchevel. A particular favourite would be the red 'Princess' on Mont D'Arbois, and the picturesque green down to Le Bettex. On 19/12/05 we were the only people on these two runs. Stunning views of Mont Blanc.
The snow : Just amazing - about 40cm fell whilst we were there.
Off-piste : Loads of it. We just played in the edges of the piste.
The resort : Megeve is very pretty. Lovely traditional shops and a load of designer stuff too.(Expensive) The village square was lit up with a tree and fairy lights and Le Pere de Noel was in a little chalet, in the centre! There was free vin chaud and hot bread out of a little oven.
Food : I have never seen so many mountain restaurants - all looking like chalets! Food on the mountain ranged from cordon-bleu to basic.
Accommodation : We stayed in Rond Point chalet( Exceptionally good staff, very good food and very nice ambience. But the chalet is in need of a major makeover. Good transfer from the airport included.
Costs: £500 for 4 nights for the two of us. Plus EasyJet fares.
Conclusion: We will definitely return.
