Argentiere la Bessee – The annual CC/Joint Clubs Ice fest Meet

Accommodation is planned to be the Gite Moulin Papillion in Argentiere la Bessee. The price per night includes Bed, Breakfast AND evening meals

We have a have a number of people already conformed to attend the Argentiere la Bessee Meet and are planning for car sharing transport. We will make our usual four (or five) person car-sharing teams and hire cars on arrival in Milan, then drive a few hours (maybe more, maybe less) over the border to Argentiere La Bessee in Briancon. 

CAR SHARING can be organised at a later date, just get booked on the Meet and in the accommodation first! Before places run out!

Some attendees will be flying to Milan Malpassa, by Easy Jet on the 6th, at 09.40 from Edinburgh. They land at Milan (Malpassa) at 1300, and car sharing from there. Don't risk Ryanair! Some attendees will be flying to Milan Linate with Lufthansa. A little more expensive but more guaranteed.
