Short ski weekends and midweek breaks seem to become more popular every year, for good reason we think.
After joining us for a ski weekend or midweek skiing holiday, many are completely won over to the benefits of a 3 or 4-day ski trip and will return year after year. Here’s why we believe that is…
Why Take a Short Ski Break in the French Alps:
|1. Near to Geneva Airport - short transfers When you're coming for a ski weekend or midweek break, you don't want to spend ages on a bus to get there! All of our short ski breaks are in resorts around 1 hour from Geneva airport (between 55-75 minutes). Geneva has a great choice of cheap flights from all over the UK, particularly from London.

|2. Cheaper Flights
Our short skiing and snowboard trips in the Northern French Alps run from Thursday – Monday, or Monday – Thursday, meaning flights are usually cheaper than if you fly on a Saturday or Sunday.
|3. Quieter Slopes and Shorter Lift Queues
You can ski or snowboard over the weekends themselves, which are actually quieter days because most people are either arriving for the start of their holiday, or going home on those days, leaving you to have the slopes (and therefore the lifts) to yourselves for the most part.
|4. Plenty of Skiing, Less Time Off Work / Away from Other Commitments
Short skiing trips allow you to take limited time off work, or be away from home, whilst maximising your time on the slopes – our long weekend ski breaks really do mean 4 full days of skiing, whilst our midweek holidays provide 3 full days on the piste.
|5. Lower Cost, Bonus Extra Ski Trip!
Ski weekends and midweek breaks are an ideal way to take an extra skiing holiday with your partner or friends, in addition to your main family ski holiday (or summer) – without breaking the bank! Just keep an eye on the snow forecast and book a short break ski weekend as soon as you see the snow falling to take advantage of the best conditions.
|6. More Convenience, Less Hassle
Yes, I know, we said 5 reasons for taking a ski weekend or midweek break, but when you book with Ski Weekender, you get an extra benefit! All of our short break ski or snowboard holidays provide you with the ultimate convenience, and much less hassle!
With our ‘Lite Packages’ we will meet you at Geneva Airport, have your lift pass waiting on arrival, offer comfortable and cosy twin, family or double rooms, provide half board catering – including a continental breakfast buffet and 3-course evening meal with wine (in most accommodations, 2 hotels are currently B&B only), and generally ensure you have a hassle-free short ski break, which can only mean more time on the slopes, and to relax, on your actual holiday itself.
However, if you book one of our ‘Classic Packages’, all of that is included – along with having your ski hire organised for you, a delicious 3-course welcome dinner with wine on your arrival, and so much more!
