The best resorts for a ski weekend

the-mountains-are-calling

Things to consider when booking a short break ski trip

If you’re planning a ski weekend or a short break you want maximum ski time, minimum transfer time. Almost the entire skiing industry is designed to serve snow-lovers with week-long ski holidays. The majority of chalets, apartments and even transfers are geared to that market which makes organising a ski weekend less straightforward.

However, fly out Wednesday night or Thursday morning and you can have four days skiing for the price of two days off. The MySwft team is full of skiers and snowboarders who’ve spent their lives stretching their holiday allowance to maximise time on the slopes.

We’re sharing what we know with you below and we’d be very happy to help you find the right short-break for your group. Tell us what you need and we’ll put together a selection of options around your requirements that you can share with friends. We’ll then be available to answer questions or tweak the arrangements as you need.

A large ski lift in Chamonix in the snow

Chamonix

Altitude: 1,035m - 3,842m
Skiing: 155km
Transfer time: Geneva - 60 minutes

Just an hour from Geneva, Chamonix’s convenient location makes it ideal for a ski weekend. Local hotel and chalet owners are much happier than most resorts to welcome short break trips. The resort is spread across five ski areas connected by free busses and offers spectacular off-piste skiing, while there’s an excellent beginner area on the Brevent side and there's plenty for those in-between. Full area passes even let you spend a day in Courmayeur.

The ski resort of La Clusaz in the snow

La Clusaz

Altitude: 1,100m - 2,600m
Skiing: 220km
Transfer time: Geneva - 50 minutes

A picturesque resort in the Aravis ski area with bags of Savoyarde charm. While fairly small, there is plenty of skiing and the slopes running up to the La Balme are high enough to be reliable most of the season. The views from the top across the valley towards Mont Blanc are breathtaking. A few bars, restaurants and a night club keep the après compact yet lively.

Courmayeur

Altitude: 1,200m - 3,755m
Skiing: 41.5km
Transfer time: Geneva - 90 minutes

A great location, high altitude skiing and a picturesque Italian mountain resort. The locals are impeccably friendly and there are some gorgeous restaurants dotted about the mountain. There is ample skiing for all levels for over a few days and the more rigorous can always pop through the Mont Blanc tunnel for a day at it in Chamonix. We love our Italian partner hotels and so do our guests.

 

 

The ski resort of Flaine in the snow on a suny day

Flaine

Altitude: 1,600m - 2,500m
Skiing: 365km
Transfer time: Geneva - 75 minutes

At the top of the Grand Massif ski area, this is another lively resort within easy reach of Geneva and it has a huge amount of skiing. There are both chalets and hotels willing to accept short-break trips on selected dates. Great for groups and families looking to sneak away for a few days or a week.

The ski resort of Avoriaz lit up at night

Morzine & Avoriaz

Altitude: 1,460m - 2,460m
Skiing: 650km
Transfer time: Geneva - 80 minutes

This charming old town mountain village has a number of really nice chalets that are open to short break ski trips, plus a few choice hotels. There’s ample skiing in Morzine itself for a few days, although the resort itself is low altitude and you can’t always ski back to the village. For the more intrepid, Morzine connects to Avoriaz, a cliff-top driverless village in the giant Portes-du-soleil with more skiing than you can realistically manage in 3 days… Challenge accepted?

A large apres ski party in the ski resort St Anton

St Anton

Altitude: 1,304m - 2,811m
Skiing: 305km
Transfer time: Innsbruck - 75 minutes

The Austrian resort that needs no introduction, it’s possible to spend a cheeky weekend here but only on select dates. Short-break accommodation is in the form of three and four star hotels. Not a resort for a restful weekend, the après is seriously punchy, and the skiing is extensive and not particularly beginner friendly.

These are the resorts we find make the most sense for short break ski trips, roughly in order of accessibility.

It’s possible to go further afield. Ski weekends can be had in the three valleys, in Tignes & Val d’Isère, in Mayrhofen and Solden in Austria, in Verbier and Davos in Switzerland. It’s all possible. But the prices rise and the convenience declines. We’re about minimising your admin and maximising your ski time. But ultimately, if you chat to one of our travel planners, we will deliver what you’re looking for.

We have some oh snow good reviews

“My Swft sorted out our second group ski trip this year and it was even better than last year. Everything was thought of and sorted before we went, and whilst we were out there Tom and the team were so helpful sorting out restaurant reservations, recommendations for things to do, bars to visit etc. Couldn't recommend My Swft more highly, they smash it.”

Marcus Faure,
trips to Val Thorens & Tignes

“Made travelling abroad so easy and stress free. My Swft organised a group skiing trip and looked after absolutely everything for us. Flights from different airports, transfers, equipment hire (where needed), accommodation, lift passes... made a usually stressful experience very calm, relaxed and enjoyable. Can not recommend highly enough.”

James Dennis,
trip to Val d'Isere

“Easiest holiday I’ve had, everything was done for us! Chalet was incredible at a price we couldn’t find anywhere else. Will definitely use again and recommend to friends”

Jacob Aldridge,
trip to St Anton
