British Airways is launching two new ski routes and claims to be offering more winter flights from Heathrow for under £40 than ever before.

The new Heathrow flights to Grenoble, which give access to some of the most popular European ski resorts, will depart on Saturdays from December 2 with fares starting from £39 each way.

Skiers will also be able to reach the Italian slopes via Turin from £40 each way.

Flights to Salzburg from Heathrow will double from two to four per week and there will be two additional weekly services to Innsbruck.

Eurowings are launching a new winter service - Stansted to Salzburg - flying every evening except Saturdays.

This makes midweek or weekend trips to Salzburgerland resorts feasible, and with a bit of planning means that a one-week skiing trip can have 8 skiing days rather than just 6. By flying out on Friday evening and staying at an airport hotel before taking a Shuttle or taxi to resort early on Saturday morning, it should be possible to ski for most of Saturday. Many resorts to choose from all within 90 mins of Salzburg. Stay in resort for seven nights, as usual. On the departure Saturday, if your accommodation will let you store bags for the day, you can ski all day before heading to Salzburg for Saturday night (or staying in resort for another night if possible). Eurowings flight back is on Sunday evening. Fares currently from £30 each way.

If BA stop going on strike the Grenoble route would be good for me.

@achilles, Its not showing as one of the mixed fleet destinations (yet) so it might be OK unless of course the strike spreads to the other 2 cabin crew types. Lyon is currently showing as mixed fleet - caveat emptor.

only 1/3rd of the mixed fleet crew (a small subset of the total workforce) are in Unite who are the ones pushing for strikes. If you book via LHR then you are okay. Most disrupted flights are via LGW.

Just a shame it is all from Heathrow when we are miles away from their way up north.

@Jake43, agreed, but at least if I want to I now have the option of Heathrow, Amsterdam or Paris as a connection. It's a bit much sometimes when the easiest flight option for us is a drive to Stansted for the 7am Turin flight. We can drive from Geneva, but it isn't exactly a short trip. We usually drive and stay for a coupleof weeks, but the option of a sneaky short break would be nice.
