    mate reckons he’s in. The rest of us are on the refresh button. Looks like they’ve taken the registration bit off line. off to a meeting now so no idea if they’ll be any spaces left when I get back πŸ™

    the site navigation seems completely random. Keep at it and good luck.

    It was a drama, but in for Morzine on Sunday (want another shot at the biblical weather from last year :))

    I’m in. Morzine on Friday.

    shambles – crashed again – wide variety of error messages being received. bottom line – their system can’t take the pressure. Am persevering.

    ok in, Champery. We have 6 of us there and one at Chatel. So if anyone wants a swap on the Saturday, be happy to do that.

    Now I’ve got the entry (Friday, Morzine) I suppose I’d better work out how I’m going to get there and where to stay. Any recommendations for accommodation, or is there camping within riding distance of the start?

    Les Gets on Friday for me, mate booked it for all 8 of us, had a nightmare apparently and had to split it into 2 booking of 4. Chalet and flights already booked, can’t wait

    Hi Mostly Balanced. Also booked in for Morzine on the Friday with my son. Notice from your profile that you are Totton based as we are too. We drove last year and managed to camp at a Les Marmottes which is just outside Morzine. It’s only a couple of miles ride into Morzine from there. We drove last year but are looking to fly this year

    We’re driving to Morzine on the Wednesday, to arrive Thursday for a bit of a practice (not been to the Alps before). Then do the Passporte friday, ride some more on Sat then return Sunday.

    As for accommodation, if we can get an STW Morzine collective together maybe we could rent one of the big Chalets, that way it’ll be much cheapness for all involved.

    Chalet and flights already booked, can’t wait

    Now that’s organised.

    we’ve booked the places. On Thursday we’re going to the pub to work out exactly how to morph that into a weeks riding. Not helped by one mate who appears to have booked two places. One in each country πŸ˜‰

    If anyone is looking for a bike friendly chalet then we’ve stayed here a few times: http://www.skimorzine.com/summer-in-morzine/morzine-bike

    Regarding Passportes. If you miss registration completely then you can still do the loop on a standard lift pass. You just don’t get the free food and drink (unless you’re cheeky).

    In case you missed my post –

    Yesterday after much stress, keyboard tapping, website crashing, and general French faffing I managed to secure tickets for this years Passportes. However during the whole shenanigans I now have 5 tickets and only need 2. The spare tickets are for the Saturday race, 2 leaving from Morzine and the other leaving from Avoriaz (dont ask).

    So before I head back to the organisers and ask for a refund on these 3 tickets I thought I’d put it out there and see if anyone wants them first. Cost is €79, this includes a top.

    I’m posting this on other sites so its first come first served.

    Cheers

    @MrBeach and eyerideit, I’d be up for a STW Collective accommodation.
    Easyjet aren’t opening up bookings for Bournemouth to Geneva until mid April but I’m considering driving the van and packing the road bike too. If I do drive I’d happily transport any kit for anyone reasonably local to Southampton.

    Deneo – Is it possible to get refunds later? I quite fancy doing it starting in Morzine but I’ve got the mega, the marmotte and maybe mountain of hell to get through in the following weeks so might want to get a refund closer to the time. If it’s possible, I’m in.

    Edit – Ah, nevermind, quite fancied the Friday. Need to give some thought

    Try these guys in Morzine/ Montriond they have a big chalet, run by a great couple , we stayed there last year.. can hold up to 35 guests, not expensive and a relatively flat ride to the centre of Morzine for the lifts.

    Progressive ask for Zeb

    For anyone looking for accommodation I’d recommend the guys at wildbike – wildbike passportes du soleil trip

    I’ve ridden with them in the UK and had a great time. Shame time and funds didn’t allow me to go for this one too πŸ™

    You can get cancellation insurance for 3 euros when you sign on.

    If you want to ride on Friday, see if there are any spaces left from Avoriaz. It’s only a short trip up the hill from Morzine if you have a vehicle.

    @ Mostly Balanced, what dates are you looking to go. More than happy to try and link up especially regarding accommodation.

    Two of us, Friday Montriond. Only issue for the other person is transport, I’m driving as it’s only 5 hours

    atlaz

    If the booking is for Montriond/Les Lindarets, is it starting from the Lindarets lifts?

    Deneo

    atlaz, Let me know if you change your mind for the Saturday. I’ve emailed the organisers and asked for a refund meantime, didn’t take the cancellation insurance but hoping given the shambles of the registration they will see fit and refund.

    @Mr Beach. I’m currently thinking of leaving Thursday and returning Sunday. If you want to contact me directly see my shop’s Facebook page here.
