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 :-)

What are folks doing about lift passes? I mention this because I found an Alpe d'Huez Skipass from a trip last year and I can "load" days to it via www.sataski.com the web page is quoting E204.50 for 6 days E231 for 7 days, also there is a web booked offer for Saturday ticket at E29.90 so unless there is a better group price on offer this might be a good deal?

Dinner plans Sat/Sun
Since we're staying in a club hotel with other people in it (we had the whole place to ourselves at the PSB), I thought it would be nice if we could find a way to bagz tables to group-up on at least the first couple of nights. I'll be easy to spot since I am lucky enough to have some snowHead branded gear to wear (Tshirt and neck'y thingy). Not sure about everyone else? If the Belle Aurore operates like the place in Tignes, they will probably have two sittings for dinner. One at 7.30pm and one at 8.30pm and you have to put yourself on the appropriate list.

So, assuming this place runs the same way - how's about we all put ourselves down for the later sitting on Saturday night and try and spot each other in the bar first? I know a couple of you already, so that helps and no-doubt some of you know each other too. ... but to make things fun, I won't display any snowHead gear in the bar Madeye-Smiley . See how we do. Then since Sunday night is Xmas'n'all - I thought it would be nice to enmasse again.

What'd'ya think?

Have a brilliant trip, everyone! We would've been with you, because we were looking out for a cheap Christmas deal, but we cracked & booked LDA a few hours before it was announced (off first thing tomorrow morning Very Happy ). So if anyone's thinking of helicoptering over, give us a shout... snowHead

Alpinebud, copy and paste the snowheads logo, print out various sizes and make luggage tags, a4 sheets to attach to the back of your jacket/rucksack etc.... or approach a likely looking bloke and ask, in time honoured fashion, "excuse me, are you Frosty the Snowman?"

I think...

Your assumptions are wrong Wink

The game will more likely be, "Spot who isn't a snowHead" snowHead since I understand there will be 4 people there for the week outside our group + 2 more for a part of it.
I like to think of them as guests at Hotel snowHeads (so be kind to them Wink)

With 18 staff in the hotel v's 22 snowHeads, that's a pretty good ratio for getting looked after well.

So no, there wont be 2 sittings for dinner: that was an arrangement we created specifically to cater for the huge numbers we had at the PSB.
I think you'll be easily spotted Fleur Wink

Alpinebud, that's why u have the Phonelist, although still missing: Moo, Doo, Harvie, Minkers and Sunbeam (Sounds like a particularly tripped out 60's band)

And the Travel list to see who's where, when.

Grenoble airport is tiny: if you haven't hooked up on the way out, meet at the café in arrivals. There's only one!

Can anyone tell me if it's worth including the Saturday we arrive? Taxi at 10.20 so transfer time, checking in and picking up ski's and pass...Will that leave time to hit the slopes a little?

admin, Yep all good now. Yet another question from me though......It's just about lift passes again, I just had a look on the site that Snowreason said about but it says it's to close to the start of the trip to send a pass there. What have you done about your pass?

243 maybe forthwith visalp pass?

Tbh I'm happy enough with the normal pass.
I'm a postgrad so should also be able to take advantage of student reduced rate!

Maybe wont be quite the shock I thought it was!

Seems that there's a big heated outdoor pool/sauna complex fairly near our hotel so might be worth bringing swimming gear (just incase we've any energy left). Looks like its at least partly covered by the lift pass price wise so happy days.

Alpinebud, I have a sata skip@ss from last year which I can just recharge, as admin pointed out it's too late for them to send you one through the post, although they do claim that you could "withdraw" it at the resort, but I couldn't find any instructions for that. The 144 Euros is for "Alpe du Grand Serre" which is different ski area, for some reason the web site takes you there from the "Buy your Skipass" button. The ski pass we need is the "Alpe d'Huez Grand Domaine"

fezza, I don't know whether it is cheaper to buy online, personally as I already have a skipass I can re-charge I thought I could save myself hassle by buying online, something less to queue for Very Happy in my experience the lift companies aren't the most generous, so I doubt there's much difference in price booking online or in resort.

My original question was about any group buy of lift passes which may get an reduction

Harvie, Alpinebud. I'd email Stuart at Masterclass to book a class on 25th and ask for availability. But he hasn't come back to me yet... Don't know if it's already booked up.

Admin. Opt out the ski equipment hire from the hotel at this stage?

You can rent ski's at the hotel if you need too,
Ricky is our tech this year, we have a lot of new models and some excellent upgrades.
In relation to Lift Passes, they aren't the most generous people, no discount unless you have a family pass.
The passes have changed this year so i doubt they will recharge it. The new pass is called Ski prememuim.
The rep Solene or Rick can help you purchase this pass.
