Family Ski Holidays
Catered family ski holidays in the finest ski domains in the alps
There are few holidays that create as many outstanding and everlasting memories as a family skiing trip. Whether that’s the first time you drop your child off at a snow crèche or for their very first ski lesson, unsure who is more nervous – you, your son or daughter or the instructor! Or the third or fourth day, when you pick up your child for lunch after morning ski school to be told by a beaming instructor that they are now sufficiently proficient to ski with you in the afternoon. You’ll never forget that first long blue run that then takes the rest of the day to complete. Or the first time they do a black run, albeit the end of a black run that just happens to cross a blue, but the sense of achievement and pride is there all the same, not to mention a perfect photo opportunity.
The final true landmark moment – and it will come, much sooner than you may think – is when you suddenly realise that your children are now more competent skiers than you. Your daughter has a better technique and greater elegance, while your son effortlessly glides past you and urges you to keep up. Liberally sprinkled within these incredible moments are the hours spent skiing as a family, the animated inquests at the end of each day, ten-pin bowling in the evening and continual re-runs of the holiday videos.
As memorable as family skiing holidays are, they need careful planning to ensure that they are as hassle-free as possible. You don’t want the transfer time to be too long, and you may not want an early outbound flight or a late return flight. Some resorts are more family orientated than others. In France, for example, the Famille Plus award has been bestowed by the French Tourist Board on 40 resorts that offer a great range of child-friendly amenities.
