Skiing with children need not fill you with dread. Here at The Chalet Edit we’ve done the hard work for you and picked a selection of stunning luxury ski chalets still with availability for February Half Term and Easter in 2019 and a few off peak weeks too.
We know the best resorts for skiing with tiny ones or older energetic sporty ones, or both. Having visited the resort and chalets, we know them inside out and can tell you if a chalet’s not suitable for wee ones or a dream for teenagers.
What’s more, our complimentary concierge service will ensure you holiday is hassle free from start to finish, as we can assist you to book all those tricky little extras, like an in resort nanny, the best ski school for their age group or a local crèche with excellent facilities and staff.
So where to start?
Dates, budget and groups size are essential info and then after that we’ll listen to what’s best for your needs:
1. Do you want to ski all day uninterrupted or are you happy to go back and collect the kids after morning ski school and ski together as a family, sledge or head back to the chalet for some down time?
2. What standard of skier are the children, do they need super quick access to ski school? If they are tiny carrying skis can be tricky.
3. What facilities do you feel are essential in your chalet?
4. If you have you skied before, did you love it or loathe it? What resorts have worked for you? Do you have any resorts you feel you might like to try?
We’re here to help you with all of the tricky questions and suggest some stunningly beautiful chalets with all the mod-cons and exceptional levels of food and service thrown in, guaranteeing you the family ski holiday you’ve been longing for.
