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.
