Are you planning a family ski holiday shortly? There are many things to consider when planning the perfect trip. Here are some tips to help you and your family have the time of your lives.
The Right Timing
When should you go? That depends on several factors, but in general, keep in mind that certain weeks are more popular – and pricier times – to go on a ski holiday. Booking ahead is essential, and if you have children who are too young to ski, look for low season weeks when travel and accommodation prices tend to be lower. If possible, try June or September for a combination of good snow and lower prices.
Travelling with Children
Choosing airlines that specifically cater to families might be a good idea because your family will usually be at the front of the queue and coping with a few children should not be a problem for them. Many airlines allow you to carry baby buggies free of charge. Do make sure to check local child seat laws if you’re planning to book a hire car.
Save Money on Ski Gear
There are several options when it comes to acquiring ski gear such as clothing, hats, gloves, and waterproof footwear. Buying new items for a family is quite expensive, so see if you can buy it used, borrow it from friends, or share with a group. As for ski equipment, you can rent it at the resort, but if you’re there during peak season, be sure to book ahead.
Protect Your Kids from the Elements – and Fatigue
Be sure to help your kids stay warm and protected from the sun with proper clothing and accessories, including sunglasses or goggles to protect their eyes from the snow-reflected sunlight. Also, children will become fatigued sooner than adults after a long day of playing hard in the cold, so be sensitive to when they’ve had enough and need to rest. You can also help your kids enjoy their holiday more with ski lessons; resorts often offer them for free or at low cost.
