The dedicated nursery ski gardens, excellent learner slopes, wide-ranging childcare options and skilled tuition available in the mountains these days mean families have a broader range of ski holiday options than ever before. For many people though, the priorities remain the same. Easy ski/town access, gentle learner slopes, interconnecting rooms, good ski school and childcare add-ons are common factors for parents taking their children to the snow.
However you look at it, skiing can be a pricey pastime. But in an effort to attract more bookings in the low-season right up to last minute sales, we see many tour operators offering superb prices for families booking together. These offer prices, coupled with deals such as 2-4-1 ski hire for example, do help make it more affordable for parents keen to hit the hill with the kids.
