The idea is to go skiing in Zermatt. Not only has the resort one of the best skiing in Switzerland, for those who have not been there the view on the Matterhorn is spectacular. Zermatt is one of the most well-known resorts with enough slopes for beginners, intermediate and advanced skiers. Skiing with a view on the Matterhorn and enjoying one or more slopes running into Italy is a joy for every skier.
The idea is to take a train around 5.30 or 6pm and get there around 9PM on friday evening, after which we start the Après-ski or in this case the warm up for the next day skiing.
Given that Zermatt is highly sought after and it is difficult to find accommodation for larger groups, I have opted again to go back to hostel where we stayed last year. I have taken an option for 20 spots which I need to confirm by November 28.
I currently have following spaces:
double bed with shower/WC :[masked] francs - I have 8 spaces
double room simple with washbasin:[masked] francs - I have 6 spaces
2 bed room with bunk beds : 85.50 francs - I have 6 spaces
4 bed room with washbasin: 66.50 francs - I have 20 spaces
Total 40 spots.
Prices are by person by night and include accommodation, breakfast, dinner and visitor tax. If you are not a member, please add 2 francs per night.
As you will certainly understand, group bookings in winter needs to be made several months in advance. Since I do not want to take the financial risk of booking a whole hotel and then nobody shows up, I will only make a booking for confirmed payments. Therefore in order to secure our place as a group, can I please ask you to make a transfer to my bank account by November 25, 2013 at the latest. As soon as the payment is received I will obviously update the Meetup site. If there is little interest for this activity, I will cancel this trip.
My bank details:
IBAN: CH[masked] 8940 A
· Please note that everyone is responsible for his/her own acts. It is up to each individual to take out appropriate insurance (off-piste, rescue, hospitality, third -party liability etc.) and by no means this organizer can be held responsible in any way for organizing this ski-weekend.
· Reservations are made on a first come, first serve basis. Rather than the date someone clicked yes on the Meet-upsite, the date of payment will be considered.
· There are no refunds. In case you cannot make it, someone else can take your spot till 1 week before departure.
· You do not need to bring along sleeping bags, blankets etc. however you need to bring along a towel.
I will make a group reservation in trains and buses on Friday night and Sunday afternoon (at no cost). Important to note is that in case the Group does not show up I as an organizer get charged 50 francs (for trains) and several hundred francs for bus. To cover additional admin costs for last minute joiners (or last minute changes) an additional 20 francs will be charged.
