Snow on Transfer Day 14th January

Posted 13th January 2017

SNOWFALL DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR BUS TRANSFER TIME

 

This is a message for all our customers heading back to the airport on our ski transfers tomorrow, Saturday 14th January.

Ski Transfers Leave on Time SnowThe snow is set to continue to fall heavily overnight. However, the forecast is for it to calm down in the early hours of Saturday morning.

We have already built in a level of contingency in our bus times to deal with this kind of weather and the traffic is not expected to be particularly heavy tomorrow. For this reason, all our buses are still scheduled to leave at the time as stated on your eTickets. We have prepared our drivers and reps for the conditions. Walking with bags through snow takes longer than you think and we will not be able to wait for any late-comers. We are therefore advising customers to give themselves plenty of time in order to get to our bus stop 15 minutes before the departure time, as stated on your eTicket.

 

If you are reading this whilst on the piste – you lucky thing – enjoy all this lovely snow.

Heavy Snow Falls Across The French Alps!

Posted 8th November 2016

MASSIVE SNOW DUMP AND LOW TEMPERATURES HIT THE FRENCH ALPS

 

Tignes, Val Thorens, Val d’Isere, Meribel, Alpe d’Huez…..pretty much all the French Alps have seen more than 50cm of snow in the last few days. With temperatures at about -10 and almost 1m more of snow predicted, it’s a great start to the season.

early snow dump in french alpsAfter the last 2 years of disappointing early snowfalls, the meteorologists predictions of a cold winter seem to be proving correct. All the French Alps have seen a big dump in the last few days and it’s still snowing! Crucially, the temperatures remain low which means a good base can form. This is vital for a long lasting season. There’s almost a metre of snow predicted in some French resorts in the next few days so any fears of a repeat of the last 2 seasons are fading fast. And we’re quite happy about that! Check out the weather report for Tignes below!

Book your airport transfer from Genoble Airport, Geneva Airport or Lyon Airport to any of our ski resort destinations.

BEN’S BUS LAUNCHES NEW CHARITY INITIATIVE!

 

Ben’s Bus Airport Ski Transfers are delighted to announce a new initiative to boost their support of their favourite charities! Read more about it here

 

bens bus airport ski transfers charitiesBen’s Bus has been donating to various charities and helping out our young stars for a few years now. This year, we’ve upped the ante a little by giving our customers the opportunity to give a little themselves too. We’ve updated our booking system so that you can now select to donate a small amount to our charities each time you book an airport ski transfer with us. If you do, Ben’s Bus will match that amount, so effectively doubling your contribution!

Book your airport transfer from Genoble Airport, Geneva Airport or Lyon Airport to any of our ski resort destinations and on the page where you put the passenger details, you will have the option to tick the box to donate to charity,

Read more about how we give to charity and where you money goes on our Charity Page

Ben’s Bus To Support British SnowSports Athletes

Posted 4th October 2016

BEN’S BUS TO HELP YOUNG SNOWSPORTS STARS TRAIN FOR THE WINTER OLYMPICS!

 

Ben’s Bus is delighted to support a brand new initiative aimed at helping young British Snowsports Athletes.

 

British Ski and Snowboard FoundationBen’s Bus has been helping out our young stars for a few years now by offering free seats on our shared ski transfers out of Geneva Airport and Grenoble Airport to a few select athletes so they can train in resort. Now we’ve gone a step further. We’ve become an official supporter of this new and exicting fundraising idea, The British Ski & Snowboard National Foundation. We’re hoping that this will raise the profile of skiing in Great Britain whilst helping to fund our up-and-coming starlets. The bonus – all you snowsports fans will hopefully have something to cheer about at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics!

 

Ben’s Bus does also give to other charitable causes, including Shelter, SolarAid and WaterAid. For the 2016 / 2017 ski season however, we will be changing the way we give to charities in the hope that we can increase the total amount these good causes receive from us. When you book with us, we will now ask you if you would like to donate a small amount towards our preferred charities. If you do, Ben’s Bus will match your donation. At the end of the ski season, Ben’s Bus will divide the total amount equally between the 4 charities and will present all our chosen charities with a lump sum donation on behalf of Ben’s Bus and our customers.

 

We will announce more details about this soon.
