Given the chance to try them out, most kids fall in love with skiing and/or snowboarding. And with careful planning, family skiing holidays really can last a lifetime because you’ll all want to keep going back for more. The bad news is that you’ll need to save your pennies if you want to ski every year! 

The good news is that ski resorts are ever more child-friendly. Opinions obviously vary, but the following are generally considered by experts to be among the best family ski resorts in the world.

Tips

• Take kids to an indoor ski centre to become familiar with the equipment, for lessons or to find out if younger children are ready for lessons.
 • Investigate the childcare offered – unless your kids are looked after to some degree, as a beginner you won’t be able to learn, or as an experienced skier you’ll be frustrated.  
 • Consider a holiday village combining self-catering apartments with hotel-style facilities, or catered chalets with professional childcare for extended families or families holidaying together. 
 • Rent children’s helmets, skis, boots and poles – they quickly grow out of them. Rent or borrow ski jackets and salopettes in the UK. Bring thick socks, gloves, hats, sunblock, ski goggles/sunglasses, and vests and thermal pants.
• Check you have suitable insurance.
