When should I book to get the best deal?
Contrary to popular belief, booking ski holidays at the last minute does not necessarily get you the cheapest ski deals. This is because flight prices usually get a lot more expensive the nearer it gets to the departure date. Similarly, the best value accommodation (especially chalet accommodation) usually gets booked up very quickly and often people find themselves left with very limited choice. So it is always sensible to look for special offers or chalet holiday deals as they are released to the market and book as early as possible. Of course, some periods do get booked up in advance such as February half term, especially for people looking for 7 nights.
Many people still wait to see where the snow is good before booking. Yet again, this can be a risky strategy as the best accommodation will sell out fast! All of our 40 ski resorts have the ability to make artificial snow and many of our destinations in France, Austria and Italy offer high altitude skiing where good snow conditions are guaranteed. So our advice is not to wait for the snow to land. Look out for the best ski deal / offers in the resort of your choice and book!
Where is the cheapest place to ski?
It is very difficult to say where the cheapest place to ski is because there are so many factors involved. It is important to focus on the 'total cost' of the ski holiday including all the little extras that must be factored into the overall cost of the ski holiday. This has to include the price of food and drink on the mountain, equipment (ski / snowboard / 'ski board' hire) and lift passes etc. Lift pass costs can vary widely depending on resort and country.
As a general rule, Switzerland is more expensive than France. Austria is typically cheaper than France but tends to specialise more in half-board and full-board accommodation whereas France is more tailored toward chalet board and self-catering. Italy and Andorra have typically been the most affordable options for UK skiers and snowboarders. However, longer transfer times and the lower number of available flight routes can lead to less time on the mountain.
Maximise Your Time On The Mountain
At SkiWeekends, our whole ethos is to maximise the time you have on the slopes. By choosing flights that fly out early and come home late, we can maximise your time on the mountain! And if you choose ski resorts with night (floodlit) pistes you can ski well into the evening which can be a magical experience. The amount of available light during winter can be a factor in Scandinavia where daylight hours in January and February are quite short. Consequently, many resorts in Norway and Sweden offer night skiing as standard.
Also, consider the location of your accommodation. This can have a massive impact on the amount of time you can spend on the slopes. If the best holiday skiing can be found right on your doorstep, you can save valuable time walking to and from the nearest ski lift in uncomfortable ski boots!
Also, consider the age of the lift infrastructure of the ski resort. Modern lifts can save you an hour a day in uplift and will also have an impact on the size of lift queues. Rest assured, we handpick our resorts and accommodation to offer you the most time on the mountain!
How can I get a cheap ski holiday?
Put simply, call one of our ski experts on 023 8020 6971 and let them do the searching for you! Why spend hours in 'search' mode online searching for offers, when someone with specialist knowledge can do the job for you. We can arrange everything for you from flights, transfers and accommodation to lift passes and late checkouts. So why not put us to the test! We look forward to hearing from you.
Some recent feedback from our customers:
' Excellent service '
Charlie was a great help. She was highly knowledgeable about the destinations and listened to my requirements, offering fantastic advice.
' Excellent '
Excellent service, very efficient booking, very helpful staff
Mr Joshua Humphries:
'Great Service from Ski Weekends - Group Catered Chalet '
I recently booked my holiday through ski weekends. Organising a large group to go skiing is always quite a difficult and stressful task, but Alex Hutchins at ski weekends took the stress away by finding me the exact holiday I was looking for, within the dates I asked for. After choosing this deal, he assisted the group by giving all the information we required and taking separate payments, organising that himself and making the process even simpler for me. We were all very happy with the service from Ski Weekends, and Alex is a very friendly and knowledgable representative. I look forward to my holiday and will be going back to SW next year also. Would recommend. Thank you
Mr Vic Flynn:
'took all the hassle out of arranging trip'
holiday was booked within 15 minutes and good price so recommended
Mrs Ann Chandler:
Charle Robbins was very helpful in booking the weekend would recommend Charle as a booking agent.
' Excellent service, every year. '
Once again Skiweekends delivers - I have used them now for a number of years to book holidays for my family and Vicki is able to deal with a) my last-minute changes and b) increasing complexity in bookings with patience and humour I wouldn't look anywhere else for booking a ski holiday.
Mr Nicolas Sellens in London:
'Hassle-free way of booking a good value ski break. '
We wanted the leg work taken out of the process of choosing and booking a ski break and Grace at Ski Weekends certainly delivered. All sorted with the minimum of hassle with a really good price too.
Mrs Anna Major:
Vicki was very friendly and accommodating on the phone. She made the booking quite easy. I would recommend them to others. Hope our holiday will be great!
Mr Matthew Stewart:
' Charlie worked hard to set up the short break we were looking for '

Mrs Marilyn James:
' Excellent customer service '
Personalised to my requirements. Very knowledgeable staff and keen prices. No hard sell
'Perfect company to use if you’re looking for a short ski break'
Excellent prompt responses. I also had great advice when my hotel of preference was unavailable
'Easy and stress-free'
They got back to me quickly despite it being a weekend and were very helpful in making changes to the standard package.
Booking very simple and easy. Needed to call SkiWeekends post-booking and ask a question - they couldn't be more helpful. nothing was a problem and they had really good product knowledge
Spoke with Charlie late Sunday night and was pleasantly surprised I had great options in my inbox when I woke up Monday morning. Just as impressive, when I spoke to Vicky at call centre early Monday morning my case seamlessly picked up and all booking emails in my inbox within an hour of confirming on phone. Plus the advice I received and resort knowledge of agents first class. Well done to you .... very impressive.
