Maybe it’s the frost that’s settled in the air, or the growing anticipation of the Easter holidays for the kids that’s making everyone feel restless. Are you finding yourself dreaming of a family get-away to higher peaks, and wondering if this is the first season you should take your family skiing?
Have no fear - we’ve got plenty of tips and tricks to bring your mind at ease for a trip away to the mountains with your little (and big) ones! Skiing does not always seem like the easiest feat to endure, but when its done right, your family will be begging for a snowy holiday every year.
Invest in specialised childcare:
If you’d like to kick up your feet with a hot wine after a long day on the slopes, it’s an absolute must to consider in-house childcare. There are some fantastic childcare companies that can customise activities for all ages – from helping to look after babies and toddlers, to ones who will take older ones out in the afternoons for some more excitement (rather than spending time hanging about with mum and dad!).
Ensure the chalet is family-friendly:
You’ve been looking forward to this holiday for months and packed your bags two weeks in advance just to make sure nothing is forgotten. You get off your flight, take all your bags through the airport and finally get to the chalet. But absolute disaster – there aren’t enough towels for everyone, there’s no high chair available for the baby, and not even a pack of playing cards to play with the kids after a long day of skiing. These little details can be easy to forget, but can make or break your holiday.
Even with this advice, you still might be asking - which resort is best for my family? Our very own private ski instructor, Tony Galeano, offers some great advice for first-time little skiers;
”I teach children from 2 years old in Davos, which has perfect beginner terrain with very flat long runs with slight increases in steepness to suit the students ability as they progress Davos has a variety of beginner lifts and tows which save energy for young and old beginner skiers. We have found that most beginner lessons incorporate lots of walking and talking which we can avoid in our lessons because of terrain and beginner lifts”.
Prepare ahead and look for a chalet that is family orientated – Tivoli Lodge always ensures nothing is forgotten. Enjoy a dip in the hot tub while the kids play in the designated soft-play area with a two-story ice castle!
