Short Ski Breaks Europe 2021/2022

A short ski break is a great way to head to the slopes more than once a season. Have you ever thought of taking a long weekend? Fly out on a Wednesday and be back at the office on Monday. Sounds great, right? 


Also, if you’re a beginner skier/boarder, a weekend ski break can be just what you are looking for. A full week on the slopes can be too much for you and sometimes you need to keep things short and sweet to start getting the gist of things ;)


The great thing about short ski breaks is that you can do them at any time of the year. On Esquiades.com we are totally flexible which means you’ll be able to combine your flights with our ski deals perfectly. 


So, where can you go on your short/weekend ski break?
