Money Saving Tips from BMI Baby

Geneva has many top ski resorts right on its doorstep, including Chamonix, Villars, Les Diablerets, Gstaad and Verbier.

If you’re a fit and competent off-piste skier, ski touring will let you enter the untamed world of the high Alps, far from prepared pistes and ski lifts. Heel-release bindings and “skins” on your skis let you walk up mountains to points from where you descend joyously through untouched powder.

If you’re a little less experienced or just want to get a feel for the snow first, then snowshoeing is a great thing to do and an increasingly popular and adventurous way to explore the great and snowy outdoors. Strap on a pair of snowshoes and you can walk through all kinds of snow, even up and down slopes. It’s also relatively low-cost and easy to learn.

These are just a few simple ideas on activities do when you’re on holiday in Geneva and it just proves that they don’t always have to be expensive. Here are just a handful of some other key tips that will help you save money, so all you have to worry about is having a great time!

· Research the bus and train links from Geneva Airport before you go and save money as coaches can be expensive

· If you don’t want to buy your own equipment then book ski hire at the resort, so there are no queues and often they will store them for you too

· Buy unbranded sunglasses at a fraction of the cost you don’t need to worry about them getting damaged either

· Take a packed lunch to the slopes rather than eating out in restaurants
