* Following the recent decision by the French courts enforcing restrictions on who is permitted to ski with clients, our ski hosting service is currently suspended. In line with most British operators, we are disappointed by the action of the French authorities and are working towards a solution to remediate this restrictive action.
Great accommodation is an essential part of Ski Weekend. We take special care in choosing a hotel or chalet to match your specific requirements. All the accommodation we use has been personally vetted by us to ensure it meets our own high standards of comfort and cleanliness.
When you speak to our staff in the UK you can be confident that they are speaking from personal experience about your accommodation. They will have spent much of the off-season scouring the Alps, investigating hotels and resorts suitable for ski weekends.
Our team will have had personal experience of the ski resort and will be able to put your mind at rest about all the small details that are vital to making your skiing holiday a success.
We offer a wide range of accommodation to suit individual budgets and requirements.
The minimum we offer is a 2 star hotel; with all rooms having en-suite bath or shower facilities (except in some chalet accommodation). At the other end of the scale, for a really special Ski Weekend we can arrange a luxury suite in a 5 star hotel.
Owned by Ski Weekend since 2001, Chalet les Jumelles was built in 1997 in traditional Alpine style, with wooden shutters and generous balconies.
Situated in the quiet area of Les Pècles, a short walk from the centre of Chamonix, it boasts truly stunning views of Mont Blanc, the Aiguille du Midi and the Bossons Glacier.
Accommodation is for up to twelve/thirteen people in six twin/double or triple rooms, all with en suite bathrooms and a sauna & spa shower area where guests can ease their aching limbs.
This season we are delighted that Andy Fox returns as our own Michelin trained chef. He had some oustanding testimonials from last season and our guests will enjoy full cooked breakfasts, afternoon baked cakes and a multi-course dinner with accompanying wines.
The chalet’s interior offers a tasteful, spacious yet, cosy atmosphere. A huge open plan sitting and dining area is the main feature of the first floor.
This luxurious setting – with its deep sofas, open fire and fantastic views is an ideal place to relax after a hard day on the slopes. Chalet les Jumelles provides a unique ski or snowboard destination for a small group (12+), a family or two.
Chalet les Jumelles has a fully flexible booking calendar and you can opt to stay for a short break, a long weekend, mid-week or full weeks as required.

and making it work
On a short ski break time is at a premium and the critical factor in your ski weekend will be your travel arrangements. Get them right and you’ll enjoy yourself. Get them wrong and your ski weekend’s spoiled.
How you travel is your choice. We can offer scheduled flights with traditional and low cost airlines. We can also book ferry crossings or the Channel Tunnel.
Whichever you choose, we aim to get you to the ski resort feeling calm and stress free and ready to start your ski break on a high.
Whatever your option, call us and we will be happy to provide costings.
When choosing your resort there are a number of criteria to consider:
The choice is yours
Our flights, your flights, air miles, no frills or, club class, how you fly is up to you.
We are more than happy to organise flights for you and have access to all of the key European Alpine gateways.
If we book your flights, you will have financial protection of your holiday package under our ATOL licence.
Geneva, Zurich and Milan are our main inbound airports, but anything is possible, although to really maximise your ski time it is best to limit the transfer time between airport and ski resort to around two hours.
Regional departures make the whole travel experience more pleasant and our experts are happy to advise on the most suitable route to the snow.
Transfers can make or ruin a short break. Short and quick is the key to success.
We have a variety of options open to us to suit your budget; from hire cars to helicopters.
In the vast majority of cases we meet each individual flight i.e. just yours, however we do reserve the right to combine flights, but we would not expect anyone to wait more than one hour at the airport before heading off to the resort.
You can, by all means, request a private transfer at an additional cost.
We are one of the few UK based ski companies to have our own fully licensed transfer company. Weekend Travel Transfers SARL, based in Chamonix and travelling between Geneva and Chamonix most days. We are able to organise transfers on request and are extremely competitive on price.
Please feel free to ask us for a quote tel.
or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For transfers from Geneva airport to Chamonix (approx. 70 minutes) when your flight’s arrival and departure times are before or after normal skiing hours, we normally use our own vehicles. At other times and for larger groups or other resorts, we have an established team of transfer providers at our disposal – ranging from taxi services to luxury 50 seater coaches according to your requirements.
For a truly special experience nothing beats the drama and excitement of a helicopter straight from the airport to the resort.
The Choice is Yours
You will want to make the most of your ski weekend break, so there are a number of criteria to consider:
For the maximum time on the snow, you need to keep the transfer time to a minimum. It’s worth choosing a ski resort where you are confident of good access even in heavy snowfalls, a good snow record and a mixture of skiing to suit the levels in your group are vital.
Other factors are après and non-skiing facilities and whether the resort is purpose built or traditional.
