trips can make for a lifetime of precious memories. Whether it’s seeing your
children conquer the green runs for the first time, or just marvelling en masse
at the views from the chair; skiing holidays are healthy, fun and full of
quality family time. But they come at a cost, so making sure you pick the right
resort is key.
resorts guarantee a great break? The Telegraph ran a helpful article last season
which stands true for this year too http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/ski/articles/The-best-family-ski-resorts/
or have a look at On The Snow’s take on where to head https://www.onthesnow.co.uk/news/a/580767/best-family-ski-resorts-to-suit-all-ages
you go here are a few things to bear in mind:
- Travel; pay careful note to transfer
times. Long, snaking mountain roads in the back of a bus with toddlers is no
- Nightlife; skiing can be pretty exhausting
whatever age you are but make sure the little ones aren’t going to be kept
awake by vigorous apres ski activity in the nightclub next door! Likewise make
sure there’s enough to keep the teenagers happy and entertained.
- Local amenities; there are some days
when tired little legs just can’t face a full day on the slopes and that’s when
nearby facilities like swimming pools and saunas can come into their own. Check
out the resorts local website and see what alternatives there are.
- Ski schools; teaching children to
ski is best done by the pro’s so check out the availability and cost of the
local ski school and book before you go.
and have a great time, and don’t forget – until the end of January, you can kit
the kids out with everything they need for a great break for just £99*
available in store until January 31st. Excludes helmets and goggles.
