So well done to Sanjhi , Loldip , nadita and Beckita for flying the La Tania Flag . Who needs Michelin Stars….

A little bit of new snow

Posted on Sun 22 Feb 2009 at 2:59pm

Wet snow down at resort level and an unbelievable change after the sun of yesterday. Video forecast was right again.

Those who got out first thing enjoyed some clean lines although fairly poor visibility higher up. Should be plenty of more sun around for the rest of the week though and piste conditions remain excellent.

How to make a 3V holiday cheap…

Posted on Wed 18 Feb 2009 at 5:41pm

From Snowheads. (They could always save on the eating and drinking too……)

Just booked: Sat 14th to Sat 21st March
4 Flights RyanAir East Midlands to Grenoble (7.50 return inc tax – a loss leader surely the tax is more than that) = £30
4 bags and check-in charge = £114 grrrr! – that’s how they pay the tax…
No card charge with Visa Electron and a free lift to the airport.
Apartment for 4 in La Tania for £400 all in. Free car parking.
Car Hire = £153 – We’ll gamble on the need for no chains as usual unless forecast is bad (good).
Fuel = £45
Tolls = £20
Food kitty – visit to Champion in Moutiers en route = £300

So the basics work out at £266 each.

And trying to be realistic….
4 x Ski Hire / Lift Pass £1150 (got boots) – suppose this could be classified as a basic really.
Happy Hour drinks in the ski lodge 5 pints / 6 nights a week at 3 Euros a pint (researched this bit) = £360
Say 2 (decent) evening meals out and extra drinking say £75 each/night = £600
and 2 lunches out (sarnies the other days) say £20 each/lunch = £160

And the extras = £568 each.
