hi guys, long time
just thought i'd ask as my usual new years trip is not happening this year
so does anyone want to celebrate new years in a ski resort? kind of like a vf week on snow. we need a group of 4/5 for the best self-catered deals. 3 possibly.
found a package to meribel from birmingham £390ish. includes flights,accom,transfers. excludes lift pass and equipment hire.
If anyone has issues with flying, i have muchos experience with DIY approach. eg: below comes in at £310...
Currently sncf train london-bourg st maurice rtn £180, bus to resort £20, decent 4/5 pers apartments in vald'isere currently £110 p/p. DIY is usually cheaper. Train will take 10 hrs + 1hr bus. flights to geneva are £200 but then transfers from there are 3-4 hrs...
why am i asking?
1. hol with vegans
2. week in the alps breaks the long dark winter.
3. the grp i normally go with are now going to canada for a week in jan. i can't justify going on a plane for 20hrs just for 6 days + overall cost is likely to be £1000! they have deliberated for so long and now i'm without a plan.
Obviously as it's getting close we'll have to move fast. I feel i can trust the regulars here with payment for accom if i pay for it. everything else can be booked by the individual.
So... if you are a definate then (assurances of) payment of your share of the accom (call it £100) will secure your place. Once we have a full apmt we can book the accom and travel.
You may feel i need checking out. I have seen a few vf members and am happy to meet up or chat about this (im in Oxford). Did lunch with fruitbat and gelert not long ago - guys i know you're going on the veggiesnow trip in march but it'd be cool if you could make this one too!
