About Ski Weekend
Ski Weekend was founded in 1987 by Gavin Foster & Sue Greenslade. Aware that busy people might only be able to snatch a few days away at a time, their concept was simple – find awesome ski resorts as close as possible to major international airports and offer short breaks on the snow for keen skiers. The concept is 36 years old & as relevant now as it was in '87.
The Ski Weekend Specialists
SKI WEEKEND - OUR UK HOME
Our UK HQ is based at the award winning Darts Farm, Topsham, Devon. Known as 'Selfridges of the West', we're nestled above a nationally renowned shopping destination and regional Tesla hub.
Topsham is one of those rare towns where an estuary lifestyle meets dynamic entrepreneurialism and we're lucky to call it our base for all UK related operations.
Having relocated from Oxford in 2001 we have operations across a number of functions which include.
Sales, Marketing & New Opportunities.
Administration, Finance & Accounts
UK based meeting hub
HR & People
Whilst a destination itself, if passing to other parts of the Westcountry, we welcome showing you around, having a coffee and discussing all things related to maximising your time on your next ski weekend.
Darts Farm is just a 6 min drive from the M5, Junction 30. The Coffee & Gelato is worth the stop in itself ;-)

OUR HISTORY & ALPINE ROOTS
Born before the internet and cheap low cost airfares, Ski Weekend's philosophy remains true to the early days concept:
'Maximum skiing, minimum time off work’
Ski Weekend began all those years ago with a really good idea that proved successful and when you do that others are inclined to copy. Gavin and Sue have been offering a high level of personal service and excellent skiing weekends for over 35 years – not exactly something that others can lay claim to and this expertise remains as our point of difference.
Both offices have unrivalled staff knowledge for key resorts and hotels from first-hand experience and the entire team are event management specialists who happen to ski and know the mountains exceptionally well.
