Hints for trip to ALps?

Post by gr » Mon, 04 Feb 2013 03:26:05


I am taking a trip in March to the Alps (Les Rousses near Jura
Mountain/Valley). Flying into Geneva, then staying in Les Rousses for XC
skiing.  This is a first time trip for me, so any hints appreciated!
Since I don't want to haul skis with me, looks like I may be stuck with
fish scale rentals!  Could I maybe buy waxables, get nnn binding mounted
for about the same as rental?

What's wrong with bringing a proper set of skis?

I am feeling lazy about hauling them from the US, then around Geneva,
then to La Rousse. I may get over this yet.
