Featured Ski Destinations for 2019

Looking for a short ski break?

  • It takes less than 90 minutes to reach the romantic French resort of La Clusaz from Geneva Airport, giving you maximum time to enjoy being in the mountains.
  • A short sub-two hour transfer from Zurich Airport will see you arrive in the stunning Swiss resort of Andermatt, where you’ll find a unique blend of traditional alpine style and luxurious modern facilities.

Fancy making memories together on a family ski holiday?

  • Snowsure Avoriaz in France is one of our favourite family-friendly resorts, with superb ski schools, slopeside accommodation and a lovely car-free resort.
