Packages are planned with parents in mind just as much as children and inclusive or add-on childcare programmes let you spend the days and evenings as you wish – progressing and exploring in adult ski groups, enjoying fitness and wellbeing facilities or making use of the open bar and evening events.
There are just as many ways to enjoy quality time with your little ones, look out for a-la-carte family activities like tobogganing, sleigh rides and snow scooting sessions and facilities like pools and games rooms.
Childcare and ski school is included in the price, (usually for over 4’s) featuring good balance of indoor fun and progression on the mountains, tailored to your child’s age group. This doesn’t always finish when the lifts close – some hotels have after-dinner programmes where kids can continue spending time with the friends they’ve made on the mountain.
Programs like Club Med’s ‘Baby Welcome’ provide everything needed for a week of happy babies and rested parents. The likes of cribs, changing tables and bottle warmers can often be requested at no extra cost to make your bedroom suit your family, while high chairs, meal prep equipment and foods can also be provided if need be. You can also pay for extras like babysitting and daytime childcare.
All you can eat meal plans are rarely the only attraction for tweens and teens: from teen-only ski groups and spa packages to chill-out zones, movie nights and the all-important WiFi access, they’ll be able to enjoy the week in their own way.
Not having to queue for the ticket office at the beginning of the week, or factor in the price of passes on top of accommodation means you’ll be out on the slopes as soon as possible and there’ll be no extra dents to your wallet once you reach resort.
Less hassle, more quality time: there’s a lot to think about when you’re bringing the brood to the mountains and an all-inclusive ski holiday can make everything a great deal easier. Book a holiday with facilities they’ll love, food they’ll gobble up and ski lessons they’ll flourish in – all in one package.
Having ski or snowboard lessons included saves you from having to track down the best ski school before you set off. From beginner courses to guided off-piste sessions, the whole clan can enjoy the mountains with those of a similar age and level who are staying in the same hotel/chalet – a splendid way to meet new people. Often activities like hiking and snowshoeing are available so non-skiers don’t miss out on the daily group activity.
