Family Ski Season Highlights 2010-2011

Junior round-up of some of our favourite family ski resorts and destinations

 1 of 1 

There is nothing like seeing your child whizzing down their first nursery slope. Staggering how, in such a
short space of time, they crack it – low centre of gravity and no fear seems to be a winning combination.
The pleasures of a family ski trip can be immense, and with more and more resorts and specialist tour operators gearing up to families with excellent childcare, now is the perfect time to start planning your trip.
December and January offer almost guaranteed snow but both months can be bitterly cold, especially for little ones who aren’t particularly active. Easter breaks offer warmer climates but often poorer snow conditions, particularly on the nursery slopes – unless you opt to stay in a high-altitude resort. For young children, look for a short transfer time between airport and resort, and childcare, ski schools and slopes that are close to your accommodation. It’s also worth checking out ski school times – afternoons are always warmer. Older children, with endless energy, will appreciate a good selection of après-ski activities.
Your options for accommodation include catered chalets, hotels or apartments. While catered breaks can appear to be a pricier option, they are certainly the most relaxing – do you really want to take to the kitchen
after a hard day on the slopes? Plus, with a soft drink costing upwards of £4 at some of the more expensive resorts, the catered or even fully-inclusive deals available offer comparatively excellent value for money.

These are some of our favourite resorts:

* Les Gets in the French Alps 
* Courchevel, part of the Trois Vallées region of France
* Obergurgl, in Austria, is another much-loved family resort
* Grindelwald, in Switzerland is simply stunning
* Rocksresort, Laax, Switzerland
* Tivoli Lodge, Davos, Switzerland
* Courmayeur, Italy
* Whistler, voted the best ski resort in North America for eight years in a row and a firm family favourite.
* Winter Park in the Colorado Mountains
