Ski 2 Countries

skiers

Excited for your next family ski holiday but unsure whether to stick with Champoluc or explore France? Perhaps you already know you love the Portes du Soleil, but you’d also like to explore Italy? Or maybe you’ve never been to either? A Ski 2 Countries holiday could be for you!

Les GetsNew-this-season, Ski 2 now operates in the authentic French village of Les Gets. Just one hour from Geneva, the town has a vibrant programme of activities and events for children and adults. You’ll have access to 120km of skiing in the Portes du Soleil area and at the end of the day you can ski down into the village. Ski 2 has two catered chalets, where our friendly British staff will be on hand to make your stay comfortable and prepare you tasty meals, and one self-catered apartment, all within a few metres of the lift so you can get each day off to a flying start and enjoy après-ski without worrying about getting home at the end of the day.

Why not treat yourself to lunch at Lodge Le Chasse Montagne? On the ski slopes, this beautiful lodge restaurant with 360⁰ fireplace serves delicious food in a sumptuously themed atmosphere. Don’t miss the strip lights that make you feel all powerful as they light up at your foot’s command!

When you’ve had your fill of French cheese, wine and rolling pastures, a beautiful drive with one of our transfer drivers (who know these mountains like the backs of their hands) winds its way up the valley and through the Mont Blanc tunnel. You’ll enjoy fantastic views of the Valle d’Aosta before taking a left up the tributary Ayas Valley and alighting in the pretty Italian village of Champoluc. There you will be greeted by our resort staff and have access to our ski hire facilities and the Ski 2 office for all your queries.

Your first ride up the mountain will reward you with views of the Matterhorn and you’ll be free to ski across three valleys. Pristine pistes with no crowds, bombardinos (avocaat/eggnog and brandy) with your lunch and you can ski into the village at the end of the day. Lift passes included, British ski instructors if you need a helping hand, free shuttles around the village and access to the Penguin Club for the little ones.

Why not have your cake and eat it too?

5 ways to find yourself the perfect ski short break ……

ski

  1. Try to be flexible with your dates. Most tour operators will have ‘gaps’ in their bookings during the winter season and will be keen to secure your booking if you choose to travel during those times.
  2. Requesting a short break when you are staying in resort over a Sunday night will severely limit your chances of finding availability. Most hotels work Sunday to Sunday and if your break includes the Sunday night, this means your stay is encroaching in to two different booking weeks – something they are not keen to do.
  3. Tour operators find it relatively easy to sell ski short breaks from Wednesday for 4 nights or Thursday for 3 nights. For the best prices and offers, travel out on Sunday for 3 or 4 nights.
  4. Choose a ski area with a short transfer time between your arrival airport and resort, or you’ll spend more of your short break travelling than you do on the piste! Les Gets, for instance, is just over an hour from Geneva Airport.
  5. The smaller tour operators are more likely to offer ski weekends and short breaks. They can be more flexible than the larger companies whose business model is based around moving large volumes of customers on weekend charter flights.
