Ski News brought to you by, specialists in Bargain Ski Holidays and Ski Holidays in France.

Geneva recently picked up the Best Airport prize at the World Snow Awards in London, so it seemed right to have a look at the cheap ski breaks possible if you are flying to the Swiss city.

With great connections to the UK, Geneva is a very handy airport for a short ski weekend. Best of all, however, the city is well placed for a host of some of France's best ski resorts.

Just over an hour away is the Portes du Soleil linked ski area, one of the world's biggest lift systems. It has a huge choice of resorts and places to stay.


Strange architecture aside, Avoriaz is an affordable resort at the heart of the Portes du Soleil, offering a good choice of slopes. New child-friendly snow parks are helping children to learn in safety and there is a decent number of steep pistes – check out the Coupe du Monde. The town is car-free and wherever you stay, it's ski-in, ski-out at its best.


A picturesque village combining a buzzing nightlife with lots of chalets, Morzine is perhaps the best place from which to explore the Portes du Soleil. For experts, this is the best of the bunch, offering some world-class tree skiing and loads of off-piste either side of the runs.

Les Gets

If you're bringing the family, this is the resort to go to. There is a decent range of red runs, though they are not particularly long. The pretty Savoyard town is relatively unspoilt.

All three boast a wide choice of British ski schools, such as BASS, making the whole region ideal for beginners, as well as more experienced skiers.

Meanwhile, Swiss picked up the best airline award. It flies direct from London City to Geneva – ideal for a quick weekend getaway.
