Where Do We Run Our Ski Holidays?

Our main base is at the Aravis Lodge in St Jean De Sixt, 5 minutes from the resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand.
We also offer holidays in the Savoyard resorts of Les Contamines, Saint Gervais and Samoëns all of which are under 1 hour 15 minutes transfer from Geneva Airport, and Arêches-Beaufort which is under 2 hours. Read more about it here…

In-Resort Snow Reps for Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz

In-Resort Snow Reps for Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz

One of the additional services we used to really pride ourselves on was that of ‘Ski Hosting’.

This was where we used to accompany our guests onto the pistes, to show you the best slopes, restaurants, views etc.

Sadly, now due to the more rigorously enforced legislation in France, we can no longer offer this, so are introducing our new Snow Rep Service instead. Read more about it here…

Night Time Skiing and Snowboarding Under the Full Moon in La Clusaz

Night Time Skiing and Snowboarding Under the Full Moon in La Clusaz

An unforgettable chance to ski or snowboard until 1am with just the light of the full moon to guide your way!

La Clusaz holds this unique event during every full moon throughout winter. You can catch the ski lift up Crêt du Merle and ski down in full moonlight, stopping at mountain bars on the way to enjoy live music, vin chaud and the fantastic atmosphere that always accompanies these events. When you’ve skied enough for the evening enjoy the party in the bars in La Clusaz. A truly special event that will stay firmly in your memory long after you go home! Read more about it here…

Ski Weekends and Ski Holidays for Singles and Solo Skiers

Ski Weekends and Ski Holidays for Singles and Solo Skiers

Sometimes going on a ski holiday or short break can be a bit off-putting for some single or solo skiers. Whether because of the additional cost of single room supplements, or simply being alone when everyone else is in a group having fun, it’s not always the ideal scenario.

Here at Ski Weekender, we don’t think you should have to miss out as a result of either. Whilst we don’t offer specific ‘singles only’ holidays or activities, we do go out of our way to ensure you feel welcome and included to whatever degree you choose. Read more about it here…

Vegetarian and Vegan-friendly Skiing Accommodation in France

Vegetarian and Vegan-friendly Skiing Accommodation in France

It is not always easy to find a vegetarian or vegan-friendly ski chalet or hotel in France is it?
Though we have to admit it is gradually improving.

We are proud to say that back in 2007 our home base – the Aravis Lodge – was first approved by the Vegetarian Society, and it remains the only Vegetarian Society approved ski chalet in France. Vegetarians and vegans looking for a ski holiday or short break will find our spacious, warm and friendly chalet-hotel the ideal set up. Read more about it here…

Comparison of ski resorts near Geneva Airport

Comparison of ski resorts near Geneva Airport

On a short skiing holiday, such as a ski weekend or a midweek ski short break, choosing a resort that’s close to Geneva Airport is essential if you want to maximise your time on the slopes.

Geneva Airport is one of the major travel hubs for skiing in France, as there are many popular and famous ski resorts within a reasonable distance.

A short transfer can make all the difference to your enjoyment of the holiday, allowing you make the most of your time by arriving in resort fresh and ready to ski, rather than sitting in a mini bus for up to 3 hours – especially as mountain roads can be pretty windy and lumpy!
