Ski-ing near Geneva

2 Replies



I am taking my wife on a 7-day Geneva-based holiday on 17th February when we hope to do some ski-ing. We have hired a car from the airport and will be staying (self catering) at Gaillard (5 km South of the Airport). We will probably wish to ski for some or every other day or even every afternoon of our stay, we don't like travelling much but have been to Chamonix and La Clusaz in the past. Could anyone recommend (a) good ski resort(s) near to Gaillard, the best way to get skipasses and ski equipment for the duration of our stay. As we are approaching our 60's and not very athletic, simple runs are preferred and getting good value for money is always a problem so any tips to avoid major blunders (during this recession!) would be of great help. Also any tips/advice about road toll charges would be appreciated. Chris

You can find information on nearby ski resorts here, with links through to places for ski and equipment rental etc

I'm not sure what you want to know about road toll charges. If you drive into Switzerland and use the motorway you wil need to pay a motorway tax. This is a sticker that you put on the windscreen and it costs the same amount whether you are driving in Switzerland for a day or for the year. You can find info on it here

Thank you for your reply. Is this Swiss Road Tax something the car hire company would naturally pay for on a car picked up from Geneva Airport?
