Half Term Ski Holidays & Short Breaks in France – February 2023
Designed with families in mind, we offer half term 4-day Ski Weekends, 3-day Ski Midweeks, and Weeklong half term ski holidays from our base at the Aravis Lodge, skiing the resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand in the stunning Aravis Mountains.
We appreciate it can sometimes be hard work taking children skiing, so we have designed our half term ski holiday service to make sure you can still have a relaxing break, whilst the kids have plenty of fun.
You simply need to get yourselves to Geneva airport, and we take care of all of the rest, from start to finish!
All of our half term ski packages at the Lodge include chalet-board catered accommodation with a hot buffet breakfast, afternoon tea with cake, and wine included with your 3-course evening meal (an earlier children’s tea time is also available).
In addition you will receive your full Aravis region ski lift pass, flexible afternoon / evening airport transfers from Geneva, and support from our dedicated onsite ski team.
Additional Half Term Short Ski Break Options for 2023
For those looking for a more independent stay, or if you fancy exploring another resort for a change, we now also have limited availability at the 2-star Hotel Boule de Neige in Samoens, 3-star Hotel Coeur des Neiges in St Gervais, and 4-star Hotel la Chemenaz in Les Contamines during the half term period, giving you a wider range of options.
Your holiday package still includes comfortable accommodation (breakfast and 3-course evening meal at Boule de Neige and Hotel la Chemenaz, and B&B-only at Coeur des Neiges), your area lift pass, and your airport transfers from Geneva for flights scheduled to arrive between 15:00 – 21:15, and depart after 16:00 on our standard Monday/Thursday change-over days, as well as our great service from the moment you enquire.
February Half Term 2023 – Short Ski Breaks – Dates & Prices
In 2023, it would appear that not all schools and education authorities have the same week for half term. In the UK school half term holidays are either between Monday 13th – Friday 17th or Monday 20th – Friday 24th February 2023.
Unlike most other ski companies, we keep running our 3- and 4-day short breaks throughout this period.
Getting away for just a few days, avoiding the rush and chaos of a Saturday – Saturday holiday, is something our long-time half term regulars really appreciate.
Half term is by far the most popular period of the entire ski season, and always sells out long before other dates – particularly so for the 3-day midweek breaks. Therefore, we highly recommend booking early, to ensure you can secure the dates and location you are looking for!
Please contact us with your holiday dates to check up-to-the-minute availability; we are happy to hold space for you for 24 hours whilst you finalise your plans.
Included in all prices: ski lift pass (full region), comfortable catered accommodation & short airport transfers from Geneva.
