Ski Weekends, Midweeks & Short Ski Breaks for Winter 2022/2023
With a choice of 3-day midweek (Monday – Thursday) and 4-day ski weekends (Thursday – Monday) in ski resorts close to Geneva airport, we offer some of the most convenient, good-value short ski break holidays in France. Our inclusive packages make it as easy as possible for you to enjoy 3 or 4 days’ skiing and snowboarding whilst making the most of your limited time off work.
Alongside our established catered chalet-hotel ski and snowboard weekends and short breaks in La Clusaz & Le Grand Bornand, we have also increased our choice of traditional French ski resorts with quick airport transfers, and expanded our range of ski chalet-hotels & hotels to include 2-star, 3-star and 4-star options.
Coronavirus & Skiing Update

Fully-Supported Ski Weekends & Short Ski Breaks at the Aravis Lodge
Our long-running ‘Classic’ format of fully-supported ski weekends and midweeks has been perfected at the Aravis Lodge, Ski Weekender’s home base in the stunning Annecy-Aravis mountains, which gives access to skiing in both La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand.
It’s a fantastic choice for fun chalet-style ski holidays with a relaxed, sociable atmosphere and the full support of the dedicated, attentive Ski Weekender team onsite, which offers many extra benefits you won’t find anywhere else!
Also, the video below features the Aravis Lodge, and some of the 2018 – 2019 winter team who took such good care of our guests, as well as footage of the incredible scenery and skiing available in both Aravis-based ski resorts, that you can experience for yourself on one of our ski weekends and short ski breaks.
Independent Ski Weekends & Short Ski Breaks with all the Essentials Included
Alternatively, our ‘Lite‘ format runs at a range of carefully selected partner hotels, most of which are in a traditional Savoyarde style located in picturesque Alpine villages, with great access to the slopes.
The hotel teams offer our Ski Weekender guests a warm and friendly welcome, whilst providing a more authentic French ski holiday experience which you just don’t find in many of the larger resorts.
This is an ideal option for skiers still looking for a convenient ski weekend holiday or midweek break with all the essentials included in their package as standard, yet on a more independent basis, so that you can be sure of a great value short ski break in the French Alps.
How a Ski Weekender Short Ski Break or Weeklong Ski Holiday Works
All you need to do is choose ski holiday dates from one of our 3-day midweeks, 4-day weekends or 7-day weeklongs; pick a convenient resort in the French Alps and choose which of our outstanding accommodations you’d like to stay at.
Then arrange your own flights to Geneva to fit in with our transfer windows on our fixed Monday / Thursday change-over days – giving you more flexibility of where you fly from and when in that time period you choose to fly.
