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 :-)

Ah just realised I have to be back by Sunday afternoon. Something that can't be changed, unless flights are really early on Sunday. Sorry!



Hi.


I'll check on flights when I get back home later. Do you have to be back in Ludlow, and by what time? If it causes difficulty, we'll leave it as Saturday

There are no good Sunday return flights it seems, so best left Saturday to Saturday.

The Flight from Birmingham is a bit more expensive, but has a much better arrival time, and is nearer for you. With this, could possibly have an hour or two skiing Saturday, but at worst get skis, as I'm hiring:

Still hoping to get a couple more to join me/us(assuming Mayflower is still wanting to go).


Great apartment, and Cervinia looks amazing to me.


Anyone else fancy it?

Hi.

I just checked, and this nice, central apartment is still available.


Would love to find a few others to share apartment. Ideally 2 more, or 3 more if Mayflower has sorted something else.


Never skiid Italy or Switzerland, so two birds with one stone.

Hi.


There's definitely space on this trip. As it stands, there is myself and Mayflower. I will PM her todayd, to see if she is still interested, as it's been some time since I heard from her.


Anyway, if Mayflower still wants to go, that would make 3 of us for this date.

Hi.


I'm completely easy about dates, so moving to Feb doesn't bother me. This apartment is not available in Feb though, so would need find another. There seems to be nowhere near the amount of availability in Cervinia as many French resorts, and they are also a bit more expensive.

I was entirely prepared to move back 2 weeks, and messaged someone yesterday, to ask if he'd be interested if I did. I've messaged Mayflower to confirm she's still interested in existing date, which is 26th Jan to 2nd Feb. Now mfleming may be interested in current date too, so it's difficult.


As I said, I just so want to go there - and don't really mind when. I'm going to 3V in March, so was just keeping a bit of distance between that and this trip, but it matters not to me - as long as a suitable central apartment could be found(might be difficult).

Just for information.


I've looked for availability on both Airbnb, and booking.com. There is just one apartment available for 9th to 16th of Feb. It appears to be in the same block, and owned by the same guy. It has only 3 beds: Bunk and convertible bedchair. Not really suitable for 4 people, unless 2 were a couple, so this date doesn't look good - nor does the week after, not a thing available that's central.

Steve Brown have you heard from Mayflower. I'm keen to get a holiday sorted soon although I can't go in February other than the first few days of February. I saw a really good deal to a large Austrian resort going out on 12 Jan, flights, accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis plus return coach transfer from airport to resort for £319. Steve can you email me on m.fleming01@btinternet.com as I don't wish to give any more info of this deal on this site in case it gets booked up.

How much will it be for the Cervinia accommodation and car hire share on 26 Jan for a week assuming three people in the apartment and car share.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi.


I messaged her this morning, but haven't heard back yet.


The apartment I'm looking at is £969 for a week. It does sleep up to 5, but that's using a double bed. There are four seperate beds, and I was hoping to find 3 others to share. Between 4, apartment would be £242 each. Flights I guess depends on where you want to leave from, but I think there's flights available from a lot of places for £60 - or so and car hire would be £30 - £40 for 4 sharing a decent size car. On that basis, it's about £340 for accom, flights and car.



I will email you.

Hi Mark.

Not quite sure what you mean.


A few days ago, for a short while, we had 4 to share. Then a guy from Canada said his work had cancelled all leave, and so another guy who must have been tentative, pulled out too.


That left two of us, and we've spent the last couple of days since then looking for a deal in Austria. Another Mark is in Scotland, and I'm in the midlands. Did you mean you were interested in joining us for a week, but that you would drive there?


I've come round to the Austria idea quite a bit, but assuming they get snow in Cervinia, it's still where I'd love to go.


Regards, Steve.

Hi Scott.


You sound like your better than me, so you probably wouldn't enjoy skiing with me that much. Not done much off piste, although I did La Grave on my last hol, with was pretty challenging for me, but would do again any time.


A few days ago, we had 4. Now I'm not sure we even have 2. I'm looking for something on this week. Nothing would be better than for this to happen, and the apartment is still available. I don't think I'd be a good ski buddy for you. If there's more interest, and you fancy it, then we can see what we can do.

Hi groge.


The situation is this: For a long time I was looking at a nice apartment for 4, and 3 others to join me. For a fleeting moment, we got 4 - then quickly one pulled out due to work, and another quickly folllowed. The two remaining ones, found an apartment a bit further away from the centre, but almost half the cost, so took it.


I'm not sure 3 could squeeze in, or whether she has a different apartment that could accomodate 3. If the other person who's going is OK with idea, I don't mind putting the question to her. First though - you would have to find a flight gets you to Turin Early Saturday morning(26th). Living in Crewe, that could be quite easy - because you could take the same flight as me from Birmingham(Jet2 6am). We've hired a Clio to get to Cervinia, which is 75 miles away, so you could share that no problem.


If it's something you like the sound of, and want to me ask the question(assuming it's OK with the other member), then I will.


Please let me know asap.
