We explore the reasons a Swiss short break offers the perfect way to maximise your mountain time this winter.
In the strange, strange world that we’ve all been living in lately, it can be hard to know anything for certain. However, there’s one thing we do know – we’ve all certainly missed the mountains!
After a couple of years away from the slopes, we’re all hoping to get as much mountain time in as possible this winter, enjoying the epic skiing, breathtaking views and delicious Alpine food we’ve been craving. There’s no better way to get all this and more, than with a Swiss short break this winter. Here’s why…
1. Great Value for Money
Now, we all know that ski holidays in Switzerland aren’t always the cheapest of getaways… But if you know where (and when) to look, you can find a Swiss short break that offers incredible value for money.
Firstly, flights are generally cheaper when you’re not opting for a typical Saturday – Saturday schedule, meaning you can find some exceptional deals.
We know the thought of sifting through deal after deal, flight after flight can seem unappealing, but you can ease the stress by letting a dedicated ski company take care of all of this for you. Many skiers may assume that companies like Inghams only offer the traditional week-long ski holidays, but that is simply not the case. Inghams actually offer some of the best short break ski deals around, with impressive value four and five-night stays in some of Switzerland’s top ski areas.
2. Stress-Free Switzerland
If you want to truly escape the stresses of everyday life, there’s nowhere better than Switzerland. This stunning country with its incredible ski areas, picturesque towns and fairytale scenery provides the perfect place to switch off from it all. With a short break, you can ski, eat, refresh and reset, all while only having to take a couple of days’ holiday.
Inghams’ Swiss short breaks also mean that you don’t have to worry about any element of your holiday. Included in all their Swiss short breaks are:
- Daily departures on scheduled flights with British Airways or Swiss Airlines from their UK airports to Switzerland
- 2nd class return rail transfers (upgrade to 1st class possible). The highly impressive Swiss train network makes it incredibly easy to get to your chosen resort, with no packed coaches or waiting around at the airport for other passengers. Inghams provide a very straight forward step-by-step guide to getting to your destination.
- Half board hotel accommodation in 3, 4 and 5 star hotels, or stay on a B&B basis if staying for a minimum of 3 nights
- FREE ski carriage (if flying with Swiss Airlines)
- Pre-bookable lift passes are also available to add to your booking and at some hotels they are included in the price of the accommodation

3. There’s No Better Way to Spend a Few Days Off!
We all need a long weekend now and then, especially after the last couple of years! But why spend your precious time off lounging around on the sofa when you could spend it basking in the glorious Swiss sunshine, enjoying fresh powder or carving down perfectly pristine slopes?!
What’s more, you’ll often be enjoying the best conditions in relative privacy, as shorter ski breaks do not operate to the same schedule as the weekly majority of ski holidays. While they are spending the weekend days on transfer buses, you’ll be able to enjoy the best of the ski area without the crowds. No lift queues? More time on your skis. Powder day? Fresh tracks all day long. Do we need to go on?!
4. Flexibility – Perfect for Those Tight on Time
One of the main draws of a shorter ski break is that for those short on time (or leave) this winter, it provides the ultimate chance to enjoy the maximum time on the slopes at the least inconvenience.
We can’t all take weeks upon weeks of holiday, as much as we might want to this winter! So a short ski break is the perfect way to fit in a second (heck – maybe even a third!) ski trip into your schedule this season.
What’s more, on a short break, you tend to get far more opportunity to ski, thanks to quieter roads, airports and slopes! Indeed, some of Switzerland’s best ski areas are easily reached from the UK in just a few hours.
5. Because This Season, One Ski Holiday is Not Enough!
Let’s face it, we’re all getting serious ski cravings right about now. For the luckiest amongst us, it’s been almost a year since we’ve hit the slopes. For the unluckiest, it’s been two, three – maybe even four! The past few years have seen skiers miss out on countless ski trips and experiences, each one bringing with it a new pang of longing for those awe-inspiring vistas and Alpine atmospheres.
So, now that we can get back to the slopes, it’s unsurprising that this winter, many of us aren’t going to be satisfied with just one ski holiday.
The variety and value of short Swiss ski breaks, whether it’s three or four-night stays, means everyone can have the opportunity to squeeze in more mountain time this winter. Lord knows we need it!
