February Half Term
Dates often differ across the UK, so be sure to check with your children’s school to confirm when their February half term is. This holiday date is hugely popular, and so when planning you should also consider booking childcare or children’s ski schools as early as possible to ensure you don’t miss out.
Where to go
When deciding which resort might be right for your February half term ski holiday, it’s important to consider the options and determine which aspect of the holiday is most important. Here is a list of things to consider;
- Regional flights: Keeping travel time to a minimum is the best way to start your family ski holiday We recommend you try to secure flights at a sensible time of the day, so no waking children in the dead of the night to head to the airport.
- Short transfers: We understand children get restless whilst travelling, consider Morzine, Avoriaz or Les Gets for shortest transfers in France.
- Childcare: Booking our private nanny service (Portes du Soleil or Val d'Isere) or our shared childcare service (Arc 1950) for those with younger children could make all the difference to the enjoyment of your half term ski holiday.
- Ski lessons: Children will progress more quickly and enjoy the group learning environment of children’s ski school. Make sure to book in advance to ensure you don’t miss out.
- Chalet / hotel location: Many of our properties offer ski in – ski out locations, this is much easier than trying to get on a resort bus or have a long walk with children in tow to reach the first lift or ski school meeting point.
- Ski area: Your children may only be on the beginner slopes but whilst they’re in ski school you need to have plenty of pistes to explore. All our resorts have more than enough skiing for a week’s holiday, with plenty of variety for all abilities. However, depending on the skiing abilities of your family some resorts may be better than others.
- Resort facilities and non-ski activities: Of course the main aim of the holiday is to ski, but researching what other activities and facilities are in your chosen resort is a good idea. Most offer plenty to keep the whole family entertained, on and off the slopes.
France is a firm favourite with returning VIP SKI clients and generally the go-to choice for Brits looking for a half term ski holiday. We have chalets and a hotel in some of the most popular French ski resorts offering snow-sure skiing and plenty of it plus a variety of activities such as swimming, ice skating, tobogganing, or even ice driving.
We offer a private nanny service in Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets & Val d'Isere and our shared childcare service Bear Cubs in Arc 1950, which may be something to consider, to ensure the children have a fun and enjoyable experience in the mountains, and parents get some well-deserved child-free time on the slopes.
We also work closely with ski school providers and can make recommendations for ski lessons for children of all ages and abilities.
