Take a look at why a 4 night ski holiday breaks the norm from the Saturday to Saturday traditional ski trip, giving you a more flexible, affordable ski holiday.
There's no denying that, for most of us, budget is certainly a big consideration when it comes to planning a ski holiday. A full week on the slopes means you have to take 5 days of annual leave, pay for a full week lift pass, and pay for all those extras for 7 days.
We believe skiing and snowboarding breaks should be more flexible, which is why a big part of our offering is 3 and 4 night ski holidays.
Whether you’re looking for a luxury hotel with half board, a catered ski-in, ski out chalet, a quiet refuge, or even a studio apartment, our selection of 4 night ski breaks will help you find the right fit. We aim to provide you with as many accommodation options as possible, from world-class spa facilities or Michelin star dining, through to wellness areas and a terrace with unrivalled views.
Here at flexiski, we believe in skiing on your own terms, and sometimes a short 3 or 4 night trip to the slopes is all you need to leave you feeling reinvigorated. Travel on whichever day you want, and we'll find you the best transfers and accommodation at a competitive price, and help figure out all your ski break logistics, so you don't have to. Just take your pick from our selection of hotels, our catered chalet in Avoriaz, and get in touch with us for a quote for your 4 night ski holiday.
A few of our favourite resorts for a 4 night ski holiday:
With an airport transfer time of just an hour and fifteen minutes, Chamonix is a favourite amongst those looking for a 3 or 4 night skiing holiday. And that's not to mention all it has going for it both on and off the slopes. Chamonix's après ski scene is a lively one, with bars and restaurants abound in this traditional French town, featuring a buzzing atmosphere and a charm that can't be found in some purpose-built ski resorts. Oh, and the off-piste scene is nothing short of legendary.
What's it like:

3* Rocky Pop Hotel - Chamonix, France
The Rocky Pop hotel provides a more affordable option to those wanting to ski the Chamonix valley. This quirky hotel in Les Houches is great for groups, featuring an in-house restaurant, bar, and gaming area. The hotel's location means you will need to take the shuttle bus to and from the slopes each day, providing its own service twice in the morning and again twice in the afternoon. Alternatively, there is the local shuttle that runs every 30 minutes from just outside the hotel (Le Pont) which is included in your lift pass.
What we like:
- Short transfer to resort and excellent value

Tips to make the most of your 4 night ski holiday:
We know that ski holiday costs can easily mount up, so we've put together a few hints to help you get out to the slopes in the most economical way possible. There are plenty of ways to ensure that costs stay low and holiday enjoyment stays high:
- Make the most of public transport and freebies included in your lift pass - access to the resort's community swimming pool or ice rink is often included in your ski pass, so make sure you check this out before heading to resort or ask at the tourist office
- Opt for chalet catering - chalet catering makes a huge difference when it comes to keeping costs down. Whilst it might seem like an unnecessary overhead when booking, chalets can save a fortune on pricey evening meals for just a fraction more on initial accommodation. With a flexiski operated chalet, you'll receive a scrummy breakfast (always with a hot option!), afternoon tea and home-made cake, and a three-course meal with unlimited wine.
- Pack a lunch - it's so easy to prepare a sandwich before heading out for the day. Just buy yourself a baguette or loaf of bread at the local bakery and fill it up with whatever you'd like. A classic ham and cheese baguette will certainly hit the spot when enjoyed on the slopes in the sunshine.
- Bring a backpack - you'll appreciate the extra options a backpack affords you when attempting to save money on the slopes. Even bottles of water can often incur a huge premium when purchased while skiing so it pays to bring a water bladder with you and fill it up each morning, saving you ££'s and saving on plastic at the same time.
- Make the most of happy hour deals - if you're away for 3 or 4 nights, you'll probably want to enjoy time in the bars. Après ski often brings with it happy hour specials that aren't to be missed. 241 drinks can make a huge difference, so make sure you do your research on where to go for the best bargains during your 3 or 4 night stay.
