What Is A Family Ski Resort?
If you and your family are avid skiers, you may be looking into purchasing a ski resort package for your
vacation. Before you purchase your ski resort vacation though, it is crucial that you know exactly what you are
getting into. Some ski resorts cater specifically to families, while others are more known for couples or singles.
If you are going with your family and want to have other children there and other families there, you may want to
look for a family ski resort.
What Makes It Family Friendly
A family ski resort is a family friendly ski resort. It is family friendly because it offers programs catered to
families and children, not simply accomplished adult skiers. Beginning on the slopes, a family ski resort will
offer all types of educational classes on how to ski and improve your skiing. There will be kid’s classes for all
ages. In addition, while you, the parent, are on the slopes, a family ski resort will have programs like day care
programs and babysitting programs to keep your non skiing children safe and occupied. If you have non skiing teens,
you may want to look for a family ski resort that has programs for teens like clubs, dancing, and socials.
Family Ski Resort Area
The area that the ski resort is located also makes it family friendly or not family friendly. There are some
star studded ski resorts that may not be what your family is looking for. You may see a celebrity or two on your
ski vacation if you go to a star studded resort, but you will also be paying top dollar and have to deal with
paparazzi and crowds. A low key ski resort is usually more of a family ski resort than the top dollar star frenzied
resorts. You will be able to pay less to have more things for your family to do at a less star populated
In addition to celebrities—or lack thereof—you will also want to look into the town surrounding he ski resort. A
family ski resort will be in a friendly town where crime and violence are minimal. You want yourself and your
children to feel safe on your family vacation, and an area high in crime and violence is not going to be family
friendly. In addition, a family ski resort will also have a town filled with fun things to do for the kids, like
restaurants, ice cream shops (even in the cold, kids love ice cream!), shopping centers, and museums.
With a little time and effort, you should be able to find out whether or not the ski resort you plan to take
your family to is a family ski resort.
