Ski weekends & short breaks to France and Italy

We’ve all been there: you’re longing for the mountains but you only have a few days to spare. It can be hard to find the time for skiing sometimes. This is where our ski weekends and short breaks come in; designed to maximise the amount of time you spend on the slopes, while minimising the time you need to take out of your busy schedule.

Our short breaks to France and Italy are perfect for the time conscious skier. With early, outbound departures and direct transfers to the resort, you will be on the slopes before you know it. Spending an entire weekend skiing and escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life is the perfect end to a busy week.

  • Departures on a Thursday or Friday, returning on Sunday or Monday
  • 3 or 4 night stays*
  • Transfer via taxi or minibus
  • Rep service in all resorts (except Courmayeur)
