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 packed 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.

Best resorts for a ski weekend
The ski resort of La Clusaz in the snow on a sunny day

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.

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.

The whole thing was very smooth and effortless and it was really handy to have Packed on whatsapp meaning you could as a question anytime and it was fairly informal too! I will definitely be recommending Packed to others!

"TOP customer service!!!"

I approached Packed with a work project, searching for a Ski trip for 50 people. Right from the beginning the customer service was super, within a couple of days I had 2 trips that fitted the criteria perfectly. Due to the nature of my job I was unable to progress quickly and was back & forth with questions and requests, but nevertheless Ed Mellor continued to be professional, extremely helpful and patient. There was never a delay is receiving responses to my many emails.

"Simple, fast and super helpful"

I saw an advert on Instagram and thought it’d be worth a shout as I was having a hard time booking a ski trip for myself and 6 mates. From start to finish it was easy messaging through WhatsApp and they found brilliant deals for us. Would happily recommend to anyone thinking of using them. Ed was fantastic and super fast to reply and keep my up to date

I've booked with My Swft for the last 3 years, 4 holidays in total. This year was even better. The new online booking is really simple to be able to share with the group and get people to choose a location. Then everyone managing their own booking makes it even easier for the group leader!

Adam Burrage

"packed 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 packed more highly, they smash it."

"Made travelling abroad so easy and stress free. packed 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,

"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"
