Book your Geneva airport transfer Quick!

The latest snow forecast for the Alps is looking very good!

If you have not already booked your airport transfer now might be a good time.  An early dump of snow followed by cold weather is the perfect start to the season and means that Xmas and New Year is more likely to be “Snow Sure”.

We will of course be following this and reporting as soon as we see the white stuff falling out of the sky.

Is this the start of winter 2013/14?

How things can change, we were riding our bikes two days ago and now there is at least 10cm of snow covering our car-park and the snow is still coming down hard and fast.

With temperatures set to stay below 0 degrees for the next few days and snow on the forecast all day tomorrow, this could be the beginning.

Police on Mont-Blanc! Going too far?

Policing of the “normal” route and Trois mont-Blanc route on Mont-Blanc will now go tete-rousse-04ahead for this coming summer climbing season 2013.

From June through to September police will be placed on two very popular climbing routes to inform and, when necessary prevent people attempting Mont Blanc.

They will mostly be present in two places: the Col du Midi and the Tete Rousse hut. They are being placed there to educate climbers and give advice for a successful summit attempt. They will look at equipment, peoples fitness, weather and other factors.

The only place where is it permited to bivouac is at the Tête Rousse, where there is a designated camping area.
