Hi Adam,

In the European Trident, the check-in day is Sunday for Val d'Isère. Some others are Saturday. If you tell me exactly which ones you are interested in, I'm glad to tell you the corresponding days.

Just tell me....

I believe all villages which have Paris land/train transfer to Bourg St maurice and bus transfer to the particular village have weekly packages starting on Sunday, and train transfer to Moutiers and bus transfer to the village starting on Saturday. According to 2006-7 CM catalogue (known as 'Trident Neige 2006-2007 'in France) 7 day closed parking is 80 euros at Val D'Isere, and reservation is recommended ( or you may not have a spot, you cannot park on the street , and Val D'Isere is a cute, lively and expensive resort with narrow streets -think Vail) . I do not know the rates for the upcoming season, CM USA should (hopefully) help. CM bus transfer from Geneva is convenient, could cost less ( and probably free if you buy your airfare from CM) than rental. Bus transfer is 4-4.5 hrs; but if there is traffic/accident on the road(not unusual), it is longer. Personally I would prefer not to drive to Val D'Isere since your week will be full, and you do not need a car outside CM (there are free local shuttles). Driving under snow (possible), high gasoline price, cost of rental&insurance may not justify it. I have been there Jan 2004, at Val Thorens March 2007, and I will go to Arcs Extreme April 2008: I always use Paris transfer.

Hi Adam,

What Indiana says is correct. Of course, for me living in Switzerland, I would recommend you to fly to Geneva and take the CM transfer coach. This is certainly the cheapest and safest way. You have direct flights from NY on Swiss and Continental.

Now, if you would like to see some of France, then take the train (TGV is the high speed train) from Paris. They are very comfortable.

I wish you a wonderful time in the European Alps.

Chrisbo (if you need more info about Geneva and surroundings, let me know).

Chrisbo!
It looks like we are looking at the following scenario
Friday night fly NYC into Geneva , rent a car stay at B&B – nice place- walk Geneva Sat –rest of the day , have a breakfast see more of Geneva and slowly start driving to Val.. on Sunday
I did something similar flying into Lyon two days there, drive to Val and on the way back stay in Chambery then Lyon and back to NYC Great trip!!!!
I drive stick and I’m a veteran of many passages of Vail Pass in raging snow and ice storms….so I think I can cope with that drive too .
What would you recommend to stay at and to see for middle aged veteran skier and his 15 year old daughter in Geneva ? any good roads leading to France like Autostradas that are well maintained in winter … Oh I’m getting so much ahead of myself here…
Thanks for any pointers from you
Adam

nope
none of the above When booking I did not know that air fare is non refundable ..
so Swiss Inter into Geneva Transfers courtesy of Club Med
if they still remember us and then on to the new adventure ....
But, I must say Club Med arrangements in the USA, NYC to Crested Butte were great
not cheap
but it worked very well .
too bad they sold that resort ...
Thanks for your patience
Adam
