Family holidays offer a welcome break from routine - giving everyone a chance to rest, relax and regroup away from the strains of everyday life. It's the perfect time to learn new skills, explore foreign territories and discover unknown strengths, all of which you'll find in a ski holiday! Watch your children grow in confidence and catch up with them whilst bonding over who'll take home the award for the biggest fall, the most improved and best dressed.
If this will be your family's first foray to the slopes know that there is no better time to learn the basics of any snow sport than as a child. Thanks to a low centre of gravity and jaw-dropping bravery children have an incredible knack for mastering this lifelong skill in remarkable time, so it really is worth whisking them off to the slopes from as young as possible. Sign them up for ski school this coming holiday and they'll thank you no end!
The biggest concern for families in our experience is that their ski holiday will cost the earth, however our Holiday Heroes are working hard to combat this. We believe families should be able to enjoy ski holidays as often as the rest of us snow lovers! There are lots of options available for helping cut the cost of a family trip to the slopes. These include booking early to take advantage of free childcare spots, lift pass promotions and free child places on selected holidays. The earlier you book the greater the level of availability on promotional properties so the key message here is don't leave it to chance! Thinking about your next Winter holiday while everyone else is planning their Summer holiday can save you plenty of pennies.
Families are often constrained to travelling during ski holidays which means that Christmas, New Year, Easter and Half Term sell out fast. Normally until mid Summer availability for the upcoming season is at its highest so you can take your pick of the best properties with ski in/out access, in-house childcare and the number one reviewed ski schools within walking distance.
For the upcoming 14/15 season departures fall on the following dates:
All properties for families offer features which we believe make them the perfect second home for your holiday. The type of property you choose is dependent on your preferences - do you enjoy playing the culinary genius in the kitchen or want to kick back and relax by the fire leaving the washing up to someone else? Are meal times spread over 3 courses with complimentary wine and an early dinner for the kids, or a help yourself buffet with as many helpings as you choose?
Whatever you're after our team can find it - draw up your dream list of requirements and challenge the Holiday Heroes to find it, all within budget of course! Call 020 8600 1650 for expert advice on the best family ski holiday deals available right now.
