There’s a lot to be said for teaching your kids skiing skills from a young age. They’re more flexible, they tend to progress quickly, and quite often they’re pretty fearless! But before you book your family ski holiday it makes sense to plan carefully.
You want your kids to fall in love with the sport as deeply as you, so that you can ski regularly together. But to do that you need to ensure the conditions are just right. Here are a few valuable tips for skiing with kids…
1. Look For Off-Peak Dates
With very young children, you can take advantage of being able to ski during term time when prices are much lower. Once they’re at school however, you have the option either of risking the wrath of the head teacher and paying a fine to take them out during school, or skiing in the school holidays when everything is much more expensive.
If you do choose the latter option, then remember to book as early as possible, so that you have a good selection of ski schools and accommodations available to you. Also, consider going at less popular times such as Christmas or Easter rather than February half term. A family ski holiday at Christmas can be a magical experience.
