Ski weekends and Short Breaks

Running low on annual leave? In need of a quick fix of sun, snow and schnapps? Enter ski weekends and short ski breaks. Sometimes all you need is a short ski break to give you the fix you need - and naturally it can be a great way to save on a trip too.
Because Heidi is so flexible, it's really easy to search for a short ski holiday on our website. You can either put in the exact dates you want, or choose the flexible option on the search calendar and choose 'weekend' or 'long weekend'.
If you don't know where to start, we have really helpful blogs in our Ski weekend and Short Holiday guide with lots of tips from where to go and how to get the most out of a short trip - or just call us and we can guide you to the resorts best suited to a short trip and your budget.

Best resorts for a ski weekend or short break

If you're a beginner to intermediate skier, Leysin, Switzerland is ideal - it's a small and traditional resort, and within striking distance of Lausanne and Geneva (both by car and train). If you're a bit more confident, Soll in Austria is perfect. It has heaps of blue and red runs and quick transfers times, so you can maximise your time on the slopes.
For the more advanced skiers, try Chamonix, France or Courmayeur, Italy. They're quick to get too, with plenty of runs to test you, or you can book a ski guide and head off piste.
Travelling in a group of mixed abilities? Try La Clusaz, or Morzine, France. They've got something for every level of skier and plenty of off-piste for powder fiends and freeride heroes.
