Choosing Ski Resorts for Families with Children of All Ages

Posted by findskiholidays on September 10th, 2013

You have a family. That means that you have to slow down with travelling for skiing, right? Wrong! Whether you have children who are infants or teens, don’t let them stop you from going on a ski holiday.

If you have toddlers or infants, one big consideration when choosing a ski resort is childcare. It’s pretty common for ski resorts and tour operators to offer childcare so parents can go skiing knowing that their precious young ones are safe. One thing that many ski resorts offer is a ‘snow garden’ that is an area on or near the slopes where young children can play in the snow and find their ‘snow feet’.

If you have a child aged 4 to 12, you may want to think about finding a resort that offers a ski school. This will allow your child the opportunity to learn to ski or improve on their skiing skills. The minimum age for children to be enrolled in ski schools will range from country to country, so make sure you research this before you book your skiing holiday. If they are at the older age range, you can take them out on some of the more mellow slopes with you if you have the patience.

If you have teenagers, you will want to find a ski resort that caters to them. You want your teenagers to be entertained while on holiday. Until recently ski resorts were neglecting to provide services for teenagers. Now, however, many ski resorts are offering teenage appropriate skiing activities so you don’t feel like you have to put them into an adult ski school. Do keep in mind, however, that in other countries the drinking age may be less than the age of the country where you are from. You should check into this before you book a resort if this is a potential issue for you.

You should be able to find resorts with cheap skiing deals around the world so you will not be limited by a specific location. It is important that you consider the needs of your child before you hit the slopes as a family but don’t let your children stop you from doing what you love to do.
