So here are a few resorts that not only cater to skiers who only have weekends to spare, but across a broad range of skiing tastes and abilities as well.

A British skier dies after falling 32 feet from a chairlift in the French resort of Méribel at the famous 3 Vallées
The reports say that the 65 years old man, who was not yet named by authorities, had a heart attack just before he fell. He was seating next to a female friend. She is being interviewed by the police.
Investigators want to find out if the victim might have squeezed down the metal safety bar of the chairlift that protects passengers.
The lift was a six-seater built by the company Pomagalski in 2017 that transports 2,400 per hour.
Emergency services were called at 12.20 to the Roc-de-Tougne lift and from the six first respondents, two doctors tried to resuscitate the man for more than half an hour but unfortunately the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man suffered a heart attack and died on the slopes in the resort of Méribel.
Police are investigating whether the 65-year-old man was in cardiac arrest before falling 32 feet from the chairlift.
