Rachael Waite talks family ski holidays

Fri October 17, 2014

Childcare Manager and mother Rachael Waite shares her thoughts about family ski holidays.

I speak from experience – a vast amount of experience…

Having qualified as a nanny in 1992, I have 7 ski seasons under my belt. Now I am the Childcare Manager for VIP SKI and have been for the past 12 years, I also have two children; Thomas and Olivia. 

Thomas was a mere 4 months old when we enjoyed out first family ski holiday 9 years ago in Val d’Isère and there was no questioning whether we would miss out on our annual trip. Having children is most definitely not the end of your skiing career; call it the start of skiing ‘en famille’ 

Let us help with your perfect family ski holiday...

Tue November 05, 2013

Many parents worry at the prospect of organising a family ski holiday, especially if the children are too young to hit the slopes themselves. But skiing with children is not only possible, but can be great fun with a little bit of forward thinking. A family’s priority on holiday is making sure that the children are having fun, and with sledging, hot chocolate trips and snowballs, never mind husky dogs, ice caves and climbing walls, children can love their snowy holiday and everything that goes with it.

 We’ve built our family skiing packages with you in mind. Here are some little known facts about our fantastic nanny service. We take great pride in providing the perfect ski holiday with childcare;

  • You will receive a ‘nanny profile’ before you travel so you know a little more about who will be looking after your children
  • A Sunday night welcome meeting with your nanny gives you the opportunity to ask any questions and discuss the plan for the week
  • Complete flexibility - you can change hours from day to day, no need to decide ahead of your holiday
  • Our nannies can accompany younger children during ski school (subject to ski school consent)
  • Our nannies can bring children up the mountain to meet you for lunch
  • Our nannies can administer medication (with written permission)
  • Children can look forward to play dates with other children and nannies
  • Our nannies are more than happy to help with any holiday homework
  • All nannies have mobile phones so are fully contactable

We're currently offering FREE private nannies on the following dates: 8 Dec in Val d'Isere, 15 Dec in Morzine, 22 Dec (xmas week) in La Plagne & St Anton, plus 12 Jan in La Plagne. CLICK HERE to read more about our Childcare programme.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me, as Childcare Manager I can help with any questions you may have. Call me on 0844 557 1323.

2018 Update: unfortunately due to irreconcilable contractual diffiulties we are unable to offer the Hotel Montjola for the 18/19 winter season. We have contacted all guests affected by this development.

Parents - don't despair! Theodul Kids is a great alternative for anyone interested in a hotel holiday with the ease of in-house childcare.
