What to consider when organising a family ski holiday

When looking to book your family ski trip; it can seem daunting, with so many options, to pick the right holiday. However, with our expert ski gurus, you can have peace of mind as they’ll be on-hand to help you every step of the way. They can help recommend the best ski resort for you, what accommodation will suit your needs and even what standard of ski lesson you may want.

Things to Consider

  • Travel time – flights and transfer time
  • Relevant resort – to suit all skiing abilities in your family + activities off the slopes
  • Location of accommodation – distance to piste or lift, ski school, ski hire shop
  • Childcare – will you need childcare or ski with you or go into ski school?
  • Room configuration – will you need family rooms or are the kids older and require their own

Best time to go on a family ski holiday?

CHRISTMAS

Christmas in the snow is what every kid dreams of and we pull out the stops to make sure that the whole family has a magical time. A Christmas chalet holiday comes with a huge bundle of complimentary festive extras and added to the fact that all the cooking and washing up will be done for you... it really is a holiday for the whole family. For more details of what is included see our Christmas Ski Holiday page.

NEW YEAR

New Year is a perfect for spending quality time with the family and what better place to celebrate than in a wintery alpine retreat? Enjoy your home-from-home in a Skiworld chalet and have a New Year to remember. Like Chritmas there are many additional extras to help make this ski holiday a special experience. Find out more about seeing in the new year and what is on offer on our New Year Ski Holiday page.

HALF TERM

February half term is historically one of the most popular times to take the whole family skiing. We can't think of a better way to keep the kids entertained and its a great way to give everyone a break. Historically snow conditions are great and the resorts are in full swing at this time of year. To discover the best elements, view our Half Term Ski Holiday page.

EASTER

Easter is often a popular choice for family ski holidays as it typically offers warmer weather which can offer a more pleasant environment for young children and new skiers alike. An Easter ski trip is often blessed by late snowfalls too, so you can enjoy fresh snow and warm afternoons. For kids we also throw an Easter egg hunt... just to make sure they don't feel like they are missing out on any chocolate. If you are interested to know more about a fair weather ski trip, view our Easter Ski Holidays page.

T4 Nannies

You are never too young to enjoy a ski holiday! Many of our resorts have local crèche facilities and most have pre-ski school kindergartens (which usually require a vaccination certificate). 
 

Private Nanny Service
We are delighted to offer a private nanny service in partnership with T4 Nannies in Val d’Isère, Tignes, La Plagne, La Rosiere, Courchevel and Méribel.
 
Ski resorts are magical places for children and T4 nannies offer fun, flexible and top notch childcare. Unlike other nanny services, they hand-pick their nannies and hire them for the full season, so they personally know and trust the people who will be looking after your children.  All their nannies are CRB checked, first aid trained and come with glowing references. Find out more about T4 Nannies.
