Minimal time travelling, maximum time skiing
We’re experts in organising short ski breaks and ski weekends, and we’ve sourced the best resorts and hotels to help maximise your time on the mountain.
Whether you don’t have time for a full weeks ski holiday or you’re looking to sneak in your second trip of the season, we’ve put together a collection of properties to give you some ideas for a short ski break. The majority of these are within 2 hours of their nearest airport, so you’ll spend less time travelling and more time skiing!
Short break ski chalets
Wherever you see the flexiski operated stamp of approval it means the chalet in question is operated by our very own staff. You'll get the excellent service you receive before your holiday, throughout your holiday in resort. We currently operate three chalets in Europe where we offer short breaks and ski weekends, giving you the flexibility to get on the mountain when it's best for you.

A few of our favourite hotels
We've hand selected the below hotels because they're all great for a short break or ski weekend in Europe.
- 3* Hotel Terrace in Engelberg, Switzerland
The Hotel Terrace is one of our top short break destinations. Perched on the south facing hillside overlooking the village the hotel offers superb views across the valley and up to the Titlis Mountain. The hotel’s 170 rooms are comfortably and practically furnished and best of all, stays at the Hotel Terrace include a lift pass.
- 3* Hotel Alpina in Chamonix, France
The Hotel Alpina offers a fantastic location at the top of the pedestrianised street of Chamonix. One of the resorts' primary bus stops is right outside allowing easy access to every slope of this fantastic ski area. The Vista bar and restaurant is a real high point with fabulous views over Chamonix and Mont Blanc, with delicious cocktails and food complimenting the scenery. It’s well worth a visit.
- 4* Anthony's Hotel in St Anton, Austria
Time’s too precious for mediocre ski hotels. That’s why Anthony’s Hotel is at the top of our wish list. Modern comforts blend with traditional Tyrolean design in this 47 roomed delight. The spectacular roof top Sky-Spa offers panoramic views of the mountains from the sauna and superb outdoor hot tub, so you can really soak in the Mountain ambiance.
A few of our favourite resorts
With short transfer times and a wide range of accommodation available, these are our go to resorts when crafting a short break for our customers.
- St Anton, Austria
With a transfer time of just 1 hour and daily flights from London to Innsbruck or Zurich, getting to the Austrian resort of St Anton couldn't be easier. Add to that it's location in the heart of the Arlberg, it's state-of-the-art lift systems, incredibly vast terrain and reputation for après-ski, a ski holiday in St Anton can't be beaten.
- Cervinia, Italy
What started out as an old Italian climbing village is now a superb ski resort with a first class reputation for sunny, high and snow sure slopes. As well as top-notch skiing, the resort boasts a spectacular setting with the Matterhorn (or ‘Monte Cervino’ to the Italians) towering over the village.
- Meribel, France
With its efficient lift system and prime location in the Three Valleys ski area, Meribel remains a firm favourite with British skiers. Undoubtedly the prettiest ski resort in the Three Valleys, Meribel has been sensitively developed with attractive chalet-style buildings – think peaked wooden roofs coated in snow only interrupted by glimmering conifers and mountain views.
