SkiWeekends Launches New ‘true’ Weekend Ski Holiday, Including Pick Up From Home Transfer

The Weekend Warrior - Short break winter sports specialist, SkiWeekends, launches a true weekend only ski program for the first time.

Two days on the slopes zero days off work; including a new home (or office) collection service – offering the time poor skier the ultimate winter getaway.

SkiWeekends offers a variety of short break holidays to over 40 ski resorts to destinations across Europe, but despite the company’s name, the vast majority of trips are taken over a long weekend or during the mid-week period.

But due to the increase in customer demand for shorter breaks, SkiWeekends has now decided to launch new ski holiday that really does pack it all in over two days and nights – perfect for the The Weekend Warrior.

With a collection for the office at 16.30 on a Friday afternoon, customers will settle into their chalet (for example: Chalet Ellen, Morzine) at around 23.00, ready for as much slope and après action as they can squeeze in. After two nights and two full days skiing or snowboarding on the slopes of one of the world’s largest ski areas, the Portes du Soleil, a Sunday pick-up at around 18.00 from the chalet gets SkiWeekends customers back into Heathrow at around 22.00.

Managing Director of SkiWeekends, Dan Fox, said: “We offer complete flexibility and we know skiers want to do this, we are perfectly placed to make it happen seamlessly, which even more convenient for time poor skiers and snowboarders using our 30 years’ experience in short break ski trips. We take the hassle out of everything and offer a frictionless service from office or home, to resort and back again. This is the ultimate weekend ski break where you don’t even need to take a day off work – I might even get the chance to get out on the slopes this winter myself!”
