When travelling with kids, there’s often little point in paying big bucks to ski the large prestige resorts, as most of the time the little ones are happy either on the nursery slopes, or tackling small jumps and bumps on the sides of the pistes.
Also, anyone who’s tied down to the school holidays to take the kids skiing, really needs to be thinking a little left-field – so as to avoid queueing all holiday for chock-a-block pistes!
When travelling with the kids, you’ll want the experience to be as smooth and hassle free as possible, from letting everything be taken care of for you on an all-inclusive family ski holiday, to picking the right resort with plenty of family-friendly facilities.
So with all that in mind, we’ve pulled together our Top Ten Favourite Family resorts. Enjoy!
Best for Teenage Freestylers
If you want your teenage kids to think you’re super cool (and let’s face it, who doesn’t), book a holiday to the Rider’s Palace Hotel in Laax and buy them an introductory course at the Freestyle Academy.
Laax has always been a proactive and inclusive freestyle resort, with its five on-slope terrain parks often hosting international freestyle snowboard and music events, such as the Burton Open.
So Laax’s credentials for on-slope fun have never been in doubt, but now they’ve surpassed themselves by building a huge indoor ‘Freestyle Academy’, fitted out with trampolines, big air jumps with soft landings, skate ramps… Even us oldies think it’s very cool!
