It is fair to say that you love your family and you will do anything for them but equally, there will be times when they exasperate you! These feelings can feel magnified on holiday when you spend a lot of time together at close quarters and with a family ski trip, you may feel that you are being pushed to the limits! However, it is possible to survive a family ski trip while having a fun break. At Ski Line, we are delighted to say that we have helped many families have a brilliant time and here are our tips for surviving a family ski trip.
Know when your family excels on a holiday
Each family has its own dynamic. If you are a social family that likes the buzz and energy of busy places and plenty of people, book your family trip at a peak time of year. If you are a family that prefers the quieter side of life and who would prefer more time to yourself, book a trip at an off-peak time of year.
Find a resort that is right for you
Similarly, the type of resort you book is essential in making the most of your time. If you like noise and excitement, book a busy resort. If you are a more laid-back or reserved family, choose a resort that will help you to unwind and relax at your own pace and comfort.
Book ski lessons in advance of your trip
If you are keen to ensure that all your family have the most fun on your trip, do some groundwork in advance of the holiday. Ski lessons at home will provide you and your loved ones with some confidence when you hit the slopes, and you will hopefully be able to enjoy more activities when you are on holiday.
It’s all about catered ski chalets!
It is important to know what is best for your family in booking accommodation. If you are looking forward to eating out a lot, this should be a factor you consider but not every family is looking for this. When you have the chance to prepare meals and dine together in your accommodation, you can save money, you can make sure your kids enjoy meals they love, you can take your time and you get to spend quality time with your loved ones.
If this sounds like the best option for your needs, make sure that finding a chalet or an apartment where you can cook and dine is a top priority.
Make sure you are connected
While there is a lot to be said for avoiding the use if gadgets and electronic devices on a family holiday, this is easier said than done. There are times when you will want some peace and quiet, and one of the best ways to achieve this is to allow your kids to settle down with a film or TV show or perhaps even a game.
Finding accommodation that provides you with dependable free Wi-Fi is an excellent starting point in creating quiet time or engineering an opportunity when people can relax.
