CAsupergimp has indicated that this thread is about The Alps

Hi Guys,

first of all i have never travlled like this before, but anyway myself and a few friends are planning a trip to the Alps for a snowboarding weekend away, we don't want to book a holiday as they can be close to £1500 per person however i 'think' iv'e found an alternative to complete my travel for around £400-500
which is
Fly from London Heathrow to Geneva (Switzerland) for around £130
then Taxi from Geneva to Chamonix (where the hotel will be) & from there visit the snow park resort (if it works this way)

could anyone tell me if this way would work well?
or if anyone has any alternative cheapest way to travel possible to the alps

Thanks in advance

Hiya, this may be a bit late and you may have gone but you can get cheap flights via easy jet to geneva, (i fly regularly as I vist morzine alot) They rather than taxi I recommend a transfer bus. LOADS of them at the airport but id say book online! much cheaper than a taxi. I use skidgonzales but there is cham bus or various others you can use. Just google!

Hope this helps but if youve already been I hope you werent dissapointed
