The best ski resorts for...

Short ski breaks

If you can’t get away for a full week, or just want to squeeze in some extra skiing on top of your main holiday, a short ski break is the perfect solution.

 

We can arrange ski weekends or mid-week breaks to most of our hotels, but some resorts are better suited to short breaks than others. Most people will be looking for a resort with a short transfer, easy access to the slopes and a reliable snow record.
