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 :-)

Having had a rather underwhelming week in Whistler (I think piste signage has probably been as bad as anywhere I've been, which is strange because I remembered it as being rather good ten years ago), have you got an underrated resort closer to Geneva as an option?

Still got two lots of easyJet flights there and will probably end up at Zermatt, Verbier, La Clusaz & Grand-Bornand or based out of Sallanches for my short trips, but always open to suggestions for places accessible via public transport or shuttle.

If your staying in sallanches the portes de evasion is good, combloux, les contamines, st gervais and megeve all have bus links to sallanches and big variety of skiing

That's exactly why I was planning on staying there again. Lovely cheap AirBnB near to supermarket and train station, but always open to other destination suggestions.

Sion & Sierre in Switzerland usually with post bus/train to approximately 10 different ski areas all along the valley.

Modane, valley Maurienne France for similar with probably 10 ski area too, among them is satellite access to 3V area as add on to Maurienne skiing.

Both of them next to significant rail station.

You cannot be serious ! Beer can never be overated. Tea merely fills in a 15 minute slot with some biscuits. A beer session provides a satisfying experience for hours at a time.

The serious beer drinking countries in Europe like Germany and Belgium probably have laws against this type of hate speech Happy
