Stay Safe on the Slopes: Ski Safety Considerations

One of the first things that any good instructor will stress early in lessons is the importance of basic ski safety considerations when on the mountain. Safety is a key concern when taking your family on a ski holiday, but it goes far beyond simply wearing a helmet. Below you’ll find a rundown of core ski safety advice that should be kept in mind whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, because like all the best adventures, skiing also has its fair share of risk.

Top tips for skiing with children

Mon March 19, 2018

There’s a lot to be said for teaching your kids to ski 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’s a few valuable tips for skiing with kids…

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.

In between sledging, colouring, dancing and singing, the kids even found time to make pizzas for lunch. 

We guarantee you won’t make it to the end of this one without laughing!
