High quality, short break ski holidays in hand picked hotels & chalets

Maximum skiing, minimum time off work. We are absolutely fanatical about what we do… and what we do is organise tailor made, short break ski holidays. The rest is up to you…

In 1987 we introduced the concept of weekend ski breaks – three or four days out of the office with maximum skiing and minimum time off work.
26 years on we’re still going strong and we’re still doing what we do best.

The single most important factor on any ski break – especially a short ski break – is getting to the slopes fully suited and booted and raring to go! If you are an experienced skier then you’ll know how much help it is to have someone to take care of the admin. Let us arrange your travel, accommodation, equipment hire and make sure that your transfers are as slick and comfortable as possible.

Our concept at the time was simple and remains unchanged to this day – a weekend away from the daily grind to recharge batteries and get some great skiing in – all with a minimum amount of hassle and fuss allowing you to relax and enjoy those precious moments away.

Chamonix remains our destination of choice – transfers from Geneva take around an hour, there’s a huge choice of flights, the resorts in the valley offer infinite variety for all levels of skier from pow and thrill seekers to gentle blues in amongst staggeringly beautiful mountain scenery. To crown it all Chamonix town is a lively, cosmopolitan destination with attractions – and distractions, in abundance.

We have built Ski Weekend around our engagement on a personal level. Sure, you can click several buttons on our online booking system and reach a price and package and the machinery of the internet will take care of everything else but we’d like it if you could take the time to chat. In our office we have staff who have a thorough knowledge of the resorts and hotels from first-hand experience and who are really keen to share that knowledge with you.

Even a short conversation with us will help make your holiday that extra bit special.

Getting it right…

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.

ski weekend flights

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:

  • 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 the après and non-skiing facilities and whether the resort is purpose built or traditional

Flights:

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.

On time every time

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.

or email info@skiweekend.com.

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.
