Weekend Ski Breaks

Escape for the weekend

A two-day ski fix is a great way to make the most of a winter weekend, or refresh your skills before a longer ski trip. With flight times of less than two hours, Scandinavia and Switzerland are our top recommendations for weekend skiing - it’s even possible to avoid taking time off work, as we look at all available flight and transfer options.

Switzerland Ski Weekends

The easiest destination for a weekend ski break, you can really maximise your ski time in Switzerland. Travel is kept to a minimum, with short transfers and excellent flight options, while the snow-sure slopes and Alpine ambience guarantee a fantastic two days.

Scandinavia Ski Weekends

Escaping to Norway or Sweden for the weekend feels like a mini adventure. Sweden’s pristine slopes and tasteful hotels are the perfect combination for a short break, while Norway’s forgiving terrain makes it a great place to warm up at the start of the season. Direct daily flights of less than two hours mean they are both great options.
