Ski Weekends and Short breaks

Because your flights, transfers and accommodation are all organised in advance, you'll enjoy the maximum amount of time on the slopes! Booking a ski weekend with Inghams, you can enjoy a quick getaway to the snow.

Our carefully designed travel packages make everything as simple as possible; with flights and airport transfers via train arranged in advance, you can also arrange to pick up your lift pass when you get to the resort, so you don’t lose a single second on the snow.
