Ski weekends in Austria

Fancy a taste of the Austrian mountains but don’t have a week to spare? Grab a short ski break to Austria and spend a few days schussing down the slopes and dancing on tables to Europop and oompah music.

How do short ski breaks work?

You can get away for three or four days’ skiing with Crystal, during the week or over the weekend. We’ll meet you at the airport to help get you on your way, and your shuttle transfer will whisk you to your resort in around 90 minutes. You can add lift passes and equipment hire to your booking too, so everything’s ready for you when you arrive.
