Day 2 in Morzine – Brilliant!

Day 2 in Morzine and after another nights snow we had a great days skiing!

Visibility varied from poor to none, but we didn’t get too lost and managed to get back in time for the minibus back to the Chalet Sophie. After an hour in the hot-tub, a couple of glasses of Prosecco and a good hot shower we’re all ready for dinner.

Yani, our Scottish chef has created some fantastic meals so far and we’re all looking forward to tonight’s offering!

It’s supposed to be a nice day tomorrow so really looking forward to the slopes in the sunshine.

Snow at Last!

After a pretty poor winter so far, the snow has finally arrived in France!

Thankfully it was on the day we arrived and didn’t affect to transfer from Geneva to Morzine, thanks to our driver knowing a lesser used route.

This morning dawned to a good 6″ of snow at lower levels and a beautiful clear sunny sky and we’re all looking forward to getting out there after a healthy breakfast, thanks to Yani our chalet chef.

It’s a fully catered chalet which has great reviews… and there are 4 places left for anyone who might be interested. Flights to Geneva are readily available and we’re quite a friendly bunch of 4 family members.

Geneva easyJet Check-in?

OK, so who’s flown through Geneva airport recently with easyJet?

It’s been nearly 12 months since we were last there, and the memory of the queues still haunts me! The queue for the easyJet check-in surely has to be one of the longest seen in any airport, with every flight in the same line, regardless of how long you have before your flight departure.

Your gate might close in 40 minutes and everyone in front of you has 2 hours, but you still have to queue behind them.. and that’s before you even get to the human snake waiting for security!

So my question is this. Does easyJet have a dedicated check-in desk for ‘Speedy Boarding’ customers? I know they used to have at most airports, and I’m pretty sure I remember seeing one there as we were queueing last time, but no-one at easyJet seems to know.

Since the introduction of the easyJet Plus membership card, it would also appear that you can no longer simply book ‘Speedy Boarding’ as an option, but instead have to (maybe) pay extra for ‘Up Front’ or ‘Extra Legroom’ seating – again, the guidelines here seem to be a bit blurred.

I’d be grateful if anyone who has travelled through Geneva airport recently would let us know if there is a dedicated desk for ‘Speedy Boarding’ customers, or do we have to arrange to get to the airport at least 4 hours early to get to the gate on time!
