On winter sports with the family: this is how you find the ideal location

  • Published on 10 March, 2020

Booking a complete winter sports holiday with the family is quite a challenge. Are you going for a quietly located apartment or do you prefer a place close to the ski lifts? Should the ski area be challenging or should the emphasis be on facilities for the children? If you are planning a winter sports holiday with the family, there are many things to think about. In this blog we explain the various points of attention for you, so that you make a well-considered choice.

1) Take into account everyone’s wishes

Om te beginnen moet je je vragen wat de verwachtingen van de wintersport zijn. Kunnen de kinderen al goed skiën? Dan kies je voor een ander skigebied dan wanneer ze nog op skiles moeten. Ook wat betreft het type accommodatie moet er goed worden overwogen. Ligt de eigenschappen op luxe faciliteiten of is de ligging van het appartement belangrijk? Zorgt er altijd voor dat duidelijk is wat ieders wensen en verlangens zijn.

2) Offers for families

Going on winter sports with the family is not cheap. Fortunately, there are special offers in many ski areas in the field of, for example, family ski passes. In some areas, children up to a certain age even ski for free. In addition, so-called guest cards are available in various regions, which give you a discount on trips to, for example, swimming pools and museums. So it pays to find out in which ski areas you can benefit from such offers.

3) Book early due to school holidays

When you go on a skiing holiday with the family, you are probably tied to school holidays. We recommend that you book early so that the accommodation of your choice is not fully booked. In addition, you often benefit from an early booking discount if you book in time.

4) Ski equipment

When the children are still small, it is not wise to purchase ski equipment yourself. After all, they will soon outgrow their ski boots and next year the skis will probably be too short again. In the ski area you can rent ski equipment for a small amount. It is of course also possible to borrow things from friends or acquaintances who are not going with you.

5) Ski lesson

Do the children still have to go to ski lessons? Leave this to the ski school and don’t teach the kids yourself. Before you go on winter sports, you can find all information about ski schools online, so that you can be sure that there is a nice ski school in the area. With regard to ski lessons, you sometimes also benefit from an attractive early bird discount by pre-booking online.
