QUICK SKI & SNOWBOARD GETAWAYS…
SHORT SKI BREAKS FOR SINGLES
Cold Fusion now offer short duration ski and snowboard breaks for those with limited time on their hands.
You can choose from either:
4-night break from Sunday to Thursday or a
3-night break from Thursday to Sunday on selected dates during the season in Les Contamines.
With such a short transfer time from Geneva airport to Les Contamines (just over 1 hour) and an in-house team in the chalet to organise your lift pass and equipment hire for you prior to your arrival, your time on the slopes is maximised meaning that you can really make the most out of these few days in the mountains.
Return airport transfers from Geneva airport in Switzerland are included in the holiday price and our flexible time slots allow you to land early to ski on the day or arrival and depart late allowing skiing on your departure day (please see here for more details about our airport transfers).
These short ski breaks are available during the months of January & March in our Les Contamines Chalet – The Retreat.
4 night breaks Sunday – Thursday include 4 breakfasts & 3 evening meals. (Wednesday chefs night off)
3 night breaks Thursday – Sunday include 3 breakfasts & 3 evening meals.

- Waterproof ski jacket
- Waterproof ski trousers
- Ski gloves or mittens
- Ski socks (comfortable feet are essential when skiing and so it is worth investing in a few good pairs of socks)
- Thermal base layers (it is advisable to layer your clothing when skiing so that you can remove layers if you become too hot and replace them when needed)
- Light fleeces/jumpers (to layer over a base layer and under your ski jacket) – thick jumpers can be bulky and restrict movement when worn under a ski jacket
- Warm hat (we recommend wearing a helmet when skiing, but this can be hired in resort)
- Goggles and good quality sunglasses (the sun is extremely powerful in the mountains and the reflection off the snow can be very strong on the eyes)
- Sunscreen/block for the face and neck
- Winter insurance – it is essential that your travel insurance covers you for winter sports as medical services are not cheap
It is possible to hire ski clothing from many UK outlets and this may be a cheaper option than buying all items before the holiday – please feel free to call us with any questions you may have about what to bring with you or indeed any aspect of the trip.
*Please note that our Learn to Ski Weeks are for complete ski novices and if you are not a complete beginner (perhaps you have skied many years ago) then this package is not for you*
