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 :-)

Les Contamines

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I am looking at going to UCPA Les Contamines for a week on February 29th. It seems none of the transfer companies go there, they will only drop in Saint Gervais but I will arrive too late to catch the bus to Les Contamines. Is anybody travelling here on Saturday February 29th who would be interested in sharing a private transfer or a hire car from Geneva to Les Contamines? Cheers!

Alpybus leaves at 16:30 so I might be pushing it to make that, I think taxi is the only option from Saint Gervais but they seem to be crazy expensive Puzzled

Unfortunately yes, that includes a change of bus in Sallanches. There is a later bus from Sallanches (19:15) that goes through Le Fayet (19:30) and Saint Gervais (19:40) but annoyingly the timings are just awkward enough to miss this. If there was something leaving Geneva around 17:00-17:30 it would be ideal. 16:20 or 16:30 Alpybus cutting it a bit fine, 18:30 Alpybus too late.

@dfitz1000, Have you looked at getting the train to Le Fayet ? It might match up better with a bus to Les Contamines.

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

Interesting that there is a new train that just opened in Geneva on 15th December called the Leman Express (https://www.lemanexpress.ch/en/) and it connects Cornavin station with Saint Gervais Le Fayet directly, sometimes with a change at Annemasse. Looks like a good option for anybody heading that way and there is a train that will leave the airport at 17:20 and get me to Le Fayet at 19:16 with changes at Cornavin and Annemasse.

Still, if anybody is going to Les Contamines on February 29 let me know as I would be up for sharing a private transfer.
