Escaping to the French or Swiss Alps for a ski weekend or short ski break is a great way to maximise your time on the slopes, whilst taking the minimum amount of time away from work. With an early morning flight out and an evening flight back it’s possible to ski or board on your arrival and departure days, giving you the most mountain-time possible on yur break. It’s the perfect chance to recharge, unwind and breathe in some fresh alpine air; what better way to spend a weekend?.
Powderbeds offer a huge choice of ski apartments and hotels that allow shorter stays and so are perfectly suited to a ski weekend or short ski break. We’ve made some recommendations below and for our full choice please use the yellow search box on the left hand side of this page where you can search for your ski weekend or short ski break by country or by specific resort.
Flying there and back on a weekday also means the airport will be quieter and normally flights will be cheaper than travelling at the weekend. Saturdays are still a big changeover day in a lot of resorts so booking a ski weekend means you’ll spend Saturday skiing or boarding on less crowded slopes with shorter lift queues instead of having to contend with busy transfers and a crowded airport.
There’s a massive choice of low cost and scheduled flights from airports throughout the UK that now fit perfectly with a ski weekend itinerary. In addition there are lots of good transfer companies offering great value and convenient options to get you to resort quickly and efficiently. Finally, most French and Swiss ski hotels and apartments now offer short break flexibility to satisfy demand instead of only offering the week long stays as they did in the past.
