Unable to take a whole week off work for your next corporate skiing trip? Fear not, we specialise in short breaks and Verbier is the ideal resort to get away with colleagues and/or clients. Luxurious chalets, sensational food and wine and world-class skiing will ensure that this will be a corporate trip to remember
We are noticing more and more demand for long ski weekends, with people looking to get their ‘ski fix’ without taking too much time off work or encroaching on their family/social commitments. The traditional ski weekends involve arriving in resort on a Thursday, skiing for 3 days before departing on the Sunday and heading back to work on the Monday. However, we recommend taking an alternative approach and travelling from Sunday until Wednesday. Why? Because you will be able to secure cheaper air fares and enjoy empty slopes.
1. Cheaper Air Fares
Most airlines offer cheaper fares when flying out of the UK on a Sunday and arriving back mid-week. Although availability for flights on these days might not be as frequent, the money saved will more than make up for this. Although we are unable to provide flights, we highly recommend finding the best airfares via www.skyscanner.net.
2. Maximize your time on the slopes
Time is precise and maximising your time on the slopes is of paramount importance. We all know that Saturday and Sunday are the busiest days on the slopes, when locals and tourists alike are in pursuit of fresh powder. Why not avoid the queues, enjoy quieter slopes and make your own fresh tracks on a Monday and Tuesday?
3. No compromise on your working hours
The major appeal of a Thursday to Sunday ski weekend is that you only need to take 2 days off of work to enjoy at least 3 days on the slopes. True, but this is also possible on a Sunday to Wednesday break. An early morning flight into Geneva can see you on the slopes by Sunday afternoon. Enjoy the quiet slopes on a Monday and Tuesday, take an early flight out of Geneva on a Wednesday and be back at your desk by 9am! Admittedly a tough day, but it’ll be the weekend again before you know it
