Combine ski and city with a stopover in Geneva

Snow shortages may have been putting a question mark over ski trips, but rather than cancelling your holiday, why not make the most of what snow there is on the slopes for a couple of days, before heading down to Geneva to round off your wintery break in the right way!

As Europe’s leading city break destination, Geneva is a fantastic stopover for some post-ski R&R. Ideally located a stone’s throw away from the iconic Alps, and acting as a flight hub for UK skiers, there really is nowhere better for a well-deserved break to freshen up before flying home to the UK.
