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 :-)

I cannot find details of how or where the accomodaiton was booked at that price.

(Thinking about April myself)Resort site referenced reflects self catering from 750e...

Sad

professorpool, You could try http://www.ernalow.co.uk/resort-overview.aspx?qs=productid_e_73095
We use them at xmas, includes club class Eurotunnel or you can reduce price by £150. Erna Low are one of the few companies that charge by the appartment. None of these rip off extra supplements if not using all the beds.
I have previously looked to book direct and it was no cheaper.

Euro tunnel crossing at £150 is a good price - if it is a flexible ticket that is. I'll call them..

professorpool, All eurotunnel tickets with Erna Low this season are flexible (club class) tickets worth 398 return!

It is a flexible ticket.

To be fair, I consider that expensive, however, the tunnel ticket is cheaper than you can get direct, making it a bit closer.

288 euros for an apartment in Les Gets up the road the same week..

Sorry if you realise this, you can't buy the ticket on its own for £150 it's part of the package.

My Flaine comments for 2007 season - in Flaine 17-24 March for SCGB course. Apartment in Vega complex (as per 2005 report, still shabby but reasonably clean and adequate for needs) cost 229 euro for the week - actually had 5 beds although I wouldn't contemplate it for more than 3 very good friends or family - just for me so was fine. Booked through Renand agency on Flaine website - there were even cheaper alternatives. Also got 30 euro off 6-day lift pass booked through agency.
Flew to Geneva and got public bus to Flaine (2 hours) - pretty easy.
Button lift by the terrain park has not been replaced - lifted me off my feet a couple of times until I got wise to it.
Agree with comments about off-piste - we had a guide, but with a fair amount of snow I can confirm it isn't easy climbing out of even a small snow hole Embarassed
Socialised in Le White pub - lively but civilised atmosphere (happy hours 5-6 and 9-10).

a big lift and ski area upgrade program planned for Flaine between now and 2009, to co-incide with the increased number of beds being built. See http://www.grand-massif.com/panoramaofthefuture/ for details.

Also i understand Euro15m is due to be spent by the Les Carroz domain for similar lift upgrades.

re Erna Low, you don't have to take the Eurotunnel part of the package, we booked accomm in Flaine last year but preferred to book our crossing ourselves as cheaper, no problem with this.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Micheal B, do you have a link for your accomodation please. Nice report and if we do head over there I take heed about your comments regarding piste crossings....sound like it could be nasty in busy periods.

 You know it makes sense.

professorpool, for the accommodation you may also want to check prices on http://www.skicollection.co.uk/Ski/Flaine.htm no under-occupancy supplements either and you just pay for the accommodation.
