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 :-)

St Gervais Le Fayet

Hi all, I am taking the family for their first skiing holiday in February to St Gervais. Best accommodation deal we could get for a family of 5 was in La Fayet.

Does anybody have any experience of this village? Tips on transport to the lift stations that kind of thing woukd be really helpful.

Thanks all

@Clem Fandango, will you have a car? It's a bit of a hike to the skiing. There is a village bus service.

I would rent a car, to be honest, if you can swing it. There's plenty of parking at the Bettex lift station, and you'll have the option to drive up to Les Contamines or over to Combloux at Megeve. Although, to be fair, I haven't looked at the bus schedule so it could be very favorable.

@Clem Fandango, hmmm, not really I’d imagine. Train+Bus I’d think? Never had to look.

The Tramway de Mont Blanc starts in Le Fayet and will take you up to Les Houches but would probably be expensive to do more than once. It is on a different lift pass to St. Gervais. For St. Gervais you can get a local 'SAT' bus up to the main lift station from Le Fayet which also goes to Les Contamines. Check the timetable...I think it gets cheaper the more journeys you pay for. You could also take the tramway up to the station in St. Gervais then hop on the free navette but again it might be about costs for a family (fun though).
