Getting to Les Carroz from Aberdeen
We had orginally booked with Flyglobespan to go to Geneva from Edinburgh requiring an overnight stop in Edinbugh on the Friday evening. Flyglobespan went into administration about 3 weeks before we were due to go. We re-booked with KLM to go from Aberdeen with a connection in Amsterdam. This was actually a cheaper flight than the Globespan one and didn't require an overnight stop, just an extremely early start as we had to be at the airport by 4am. We arrived at the airpark first where there were alreay several inches of snow on the ground and on top of the cars. It had started to snow on 19th December in our area and there were a few more snow falls since then till we went away, this meant that although there was no big dump, there was quite a bit of accumulation which meant we hadn't see any green ground since December.
Our flight was late taking off and we were worried that we wouldn't manage the connection but that was delayed as well. We arrived about 20 minutes later than planned but it only took us 10 minutes from getting off the plane to going through customs. Ray (the other Chalet host) was waiting for us at the other side.
We set off straight away and arrived at the chalet about 50 minutes later at about 1pm. As it was quite misty we didn't opt to go on the slopes but had a leisurely afternoon and picked up our hire skiis.
Ruth and Dick were driving from Manchester and had set off the previous day. they arrived around 6pm.
