For the past few years a small group of us has endeavoured to fit in one long weekend mountain trip to Europe.   Past trips have included Switzerland, Polish Tatras, Mount Triglav in the Slovenia Alps.  Last year we ventured a little further afield to summit Mount Toubkal in Morroco.  Our plans are follow a usual format of budget airlines out on a Wed/Thurs and back Monday, leaving time for 3 days in the mountains, staying in huts and a day/evening back in civilisation at a local city for come culture, food and a shower!
