Important Factors To Consider When Planning A Family Ski Vacation

Updated on May 25, 2013

If you are planning to take your family on a ski vacation, then you should never forget to plan for it. There are many ski resorts in various places and it will be tough to choose between these irresistible places. To make your decision simpler, there are different factors that you need to consider when planning for a family ski vacation.

Family friendly ski resort

Remember, you must take into account your children when planning your vacation. In most cases, your family members are not experts but only beginner skiers. For this reason, you need to find the right resort that welcomes beginners. It will be very hard to ski together with advanced skiers as this might scare first-timers; though some are inspired instead of being scared.

It is easy to find a family friendly ski resort. In fact, resorts pride themselves to be family friendly. Choose a resort that has an area fully dedicated for beginners. It is even wiser to have a resort with available instructors to help your kids learn skiing.

Customer service

Remember that you are the customer. This means that resort owners should exert great effort and go the extra mile to please you. Luxury ski vacation is good at this. It may sound too much of a caprice but you need to be coddled as a first timer. If not, they can be sure that you will never be back. Your kids as being a first timer should enjoy the experience. Enjoying is the best way they can learn. Some resorts will even have on-site photographers to capture your first ski moments.


There are many things that you need to remember when it comes to accommodations. In most cases, the ski resort is a long travel from your house and it will be great if you can stay for more than a day in the place. Look for a resort that offers vacation packages which include meals, ski gears, lounging, ski lessons, and many others. Packages do not need to be expensive for you to enjoy your vacation. You can still find the best deals and treats during different times within the year.

Child care

Since you will be coming with your family, make sure that you are prepared to handle your small kids. It is very important that you choose a ski resort with a child care program. Some resorts even have on-site daycare with a combination of ski and play. Do not hesitate to ask the management of the resort on how they handle small children. If possible, you can hire an approved nanny or babysitter that will accompany you and your kids all throughout your stay in the resort.


Ski vacation is not all about ski. It is also about getting good time through the use of various amenities. There are resorts that can offer you indoor swimming pools, fitness areas, fireplaces, and recreational centers.

These are just some of the things that you should consider when finding the right resort for you. Remember, this is a family vacation. It will be the perfect time to bond with your family members.
