Family Ski Resorts
What does Family Ski Resorts mean?
To put it simply, a ski resort that caters for kids.
When considering a family getaway to the snow there are a lot of things we need to consider, including which is the best destination for your family.
For starters, you want a destination that is not going to take a life time to get to.
Some destinations can take all day to drive too, whilst others are simply a couple of hours away from a major city.
Accommodation is another thing you need to think about.
Where do you plan on staying?
Do you want to stay in the heart of it all, or perhaps if budget is a factor you may want to stay at the bottom of the mountain.
Regardless of your decision you will probably be looking for a mountain / resort that offer good day facilities.
You may want to consider facilities such as:
# Restaurants and Cafes
# Ski School
# Child Care Options
# Clothing and Equipment Hire for Kids
# Indoor Entertainment Options
And on a more serious note, you will want to consider options such as parking facilities.
Will you need to park miles away?
Are you better off catching a bus up the mountain?
Also what different levels of skiing are available on the mountain.
No good heading to a mountain that doesn’t offer beginner to intermediate runs if you have children, plus you maybe after a mountain with a fun play area.
All of these things will impact on your decision.
Only you can decided what are the most important factors for your family, you need to weigh up what are the biggest influences on your decision.
When resorts offer packages you’ll often find that they throw in some extra’s for free.
Some resorts even offer ‘Kids ski and Kids rent equipment free’ look for this as this is a great way to save money on your trip the family ski resorts.
