Short Break Ski Chalets

Short break ski chalets - the Ferme de Lac Vert near Morzine

Short break ski chalets are as rare as hen's teeth but we have made things easy by collecting all the catered chalets for a ski weekend in one place. Skiers who love the ambiance of a catered chalet but do not have the available time from their busy lives to book a whole week can choose one of the fabulous chalets below for a short ski break. All are available for a short stay ranging in duration from 2 to 6 nights.

Weekend ski chalets - prices & availability

The photo shows the charming Ferme du Lac Vert. Located less than one hour's drive from Geneva Airport it makes a perfect choice for ski weekend or short ski break - high quality chalet accommodation, top quality food and hospitality and access to the largest interlinked ski domain in the world, the Portes du Soleil.

Ski weekend chalets - how do they work?

All chalet companies will prefer to take 7 night bookings either Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday so that they can be dove-tailed on a back to back basis. Guests from one booking will vacate the chalet on a set changeover day and the next guests will arrive later that same day. In this way chalet companies (often working on tight profit margins) maximise their seasonal revenues. Indeed highly popular chalets will be booked out from the beginning of December right through to mid April without a single empty night.

Sometimes, however, (usually in the low season months of January and March) a chalet company will accept a short stay booking from a client. A chalet owner might take the view that a booking of 3 or 4 nights of the week is better than running the risk of not getting a booking at all. Bookings are therefore taken from Thursday to Sunday, or perhaps Saturday to Wednesday, for a price which is a little less than the full 7 night weekly rate.

This then leaves the remaining nights of the week available to book by another client. Given that a chalet company has already accepted a booking which supplies most of the revenue it expects for a full 7 night booking they then sell the remaining available nights for a heavily reduced price. If they can sell these remaining available nights the income provides the 'icing on the cake'. To attract guests to book these available short break ski chalets companies will offer a heavily reduced price (see below).

How to search weekend ski chalets using our search engine

Enter the weekend which is at the start of the week in which you wish to travel. Our search engine will list all the available ski weekend properties available in that week (either at the beginning or the end of the week selected). Some chalets are only available for exclusive use (you have to book the whole property) but others can be booked by the room so that guests will be sharing the chalet with other guests.
