I'm going to be staying in an apartment right in Geneva next March and I'd like to know what the closest, easiest skiing in the area is. I'm actually house/pet-sitting for a friend (I know--sweet gig!), so I can't really leave for more than just a day trip. Is there a way to do this? I won't have a car (although I guess I could rent one), so somewhere reachable by train would be best. Thanks!
As for the big resorts;
Morzine are all close by. There are busses leaving from the airport and it should not take you more than an hour and a half to either place. And any number of smaller, "local" resorts such as
Praz de Lys...
