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 :-)

Long weekend in mid-December (fly to Turin or St Etienne)

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I'm trying to get one /two/ more persons to join me for a long weekend to warm up in December.

Flight details:

Ryanair to St Etienne: Out Thu 16 Dec 14.40, rtn Sun 19 Dec 17.40, total flight cost incl taxes £35. 2.5 days on slope.

Ryanair to Turin: Out Thu 16 Dec 06:30 am, rtn Sun 19 Dec 22.05, total flight cost incl taxes £55. 3.5 days on slope. (resorts within 70 miles: Cervinia/Zermatt, Pila, Serre Chevalier)

I'm sure that there will be snow somewhere in the area - hotel booking can be left till late.

FYI, last year a friend (biggles76 on this forum) and I flew around mid-december to Turin and skied good snow in Cervinia and Pila for 3.5 days. Car rental was more expensive than flights, however divided by 3 or 4 it goes down rapidly, or there's a bus service from Turin to Valle d'Aosta and to Cervinia.

Oh yes, and that was arranged on the old SCGB forum. Biggles, you there and up for a trip again?

As you know Cedric, i'm up for this...we've already booked the flights so there's no going back now.

Can't believe no-one else is interested though...last year was a blast and just what you need to get the season going!

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Did even earlier last year to Sauze. Great conditions. May do this year but will be very last minute, due to moving house

I'd love to, but simply can't get the time off work.

School Holidays only for me I'm afraid!

One day.....

We ended up flying to Lyon with Easyjet.

Still to choose a resort, though.

Only about 6 weeks left...

Cedric & Biggles: Do you know Megeve? Very near to Lyon --if there is snow on the cote 2000 it is a great weekend's skiing, and Chamonix is also a short drive or busride. I may like to join, if you'd have me?! Little Angel

Julieanne,

Good timing! There were three of us and one has just dropped out today - so you may get a slightly cheaper easyjet ticket! (they were £60 when we booked, they appear to be £73 now). I'm assuming you can change the reservation name for Easyjet as you can for Ryanair - of course the person who drops out will pay any applicable fee. Actually, if you want to join I think it would only be fair to get you a further discount on the £60...

We'll consider any good resort. We're probably meeting on Thursday evening in Covent Garden to discuss where to go - feel free to join us if you would like to.

Be careful with name changes with EasyJet... we tried this 14 months or so ago on a trip to Belfast. Friends had to drop out and others wanted to take their place. The name change came to X amount (can't remember exactly) and then you had to pay the difference between the original price paid and the price on that day. The total amount came to 4x what we originally paid. The plane was also full - so even though we knew two seats were spare, they couldn't pay that days price... rolling eyes

Edit - their website says:
