Skiing is a sacred sport. With the busy lives we live in this modern day world, it's often difficult to get out into the mountains and get that sneaky ski fix! With the little time that we have, skiing smart is important as you want to maximise your time on the slopes. The best way to do that is by skiing smart and making sure you pick short transfer destinations. Picking a resort which is between an hour and two hours from the airport means you can get yourself on those slopes pretty much as soon as you step off the plane. This is especially useful if you are planning on taking a short break and are only in the mountains for a long weekend or short mid-week break. So, ski smart by taking an early flight out to a destination that is under 2 hours from the airport and you'll be on the mountain for an afternoon of skiing! Similarly, on your day of departure, if you pick a late flight home, then you can ski pretty much all day before you head back to the UK.
