There are many reasons to go skiing as a family. Spending time together as a family unit, learn something new, taking time off to relax and to enjoy many of the alternative activities you can find in a ski resort.
The needs of each family however will be different depending on the child’s or children’s age and ability. If you are going skiing with a new born then you might want access to a crèche so that you can both parents can ski together. If you have a new born then we’d recommend that you stay in one of the lower resorts like Meribel or Les Get and avoid the higher altitude resorts like Val Thorens - high altitude and babies don’t mix well.
If you have a toddler then you may still need help so that you can maximise your ski time. When your children gets older then skiing in a group with other children and having access to children’s clubs will only enhance and improve their overall holiday experience.
Nannies & childcare can be an invaluable part of a skiing holiday, so finding the right company with the right flexibility and facilities to look after your youngsters can be a stressful part of organising a skiing holiday.
Though we offer a fantastic selection of accommodation and operators that include in-house childcare; or with companies that can add childcare to your holiday at an extra cost, they don't always offer what you need. Some families prefer to book their favoured accommodation in their favoured resorts, then to organise nannies and childcare separately.
To help relieve some of the stress of finding the right options for you we have put together a directory of companies that offer private childcare in resort.
We must hasten to add that we don't work directly with any of these companies and that some chalet operators will not allow external nannies to look after children in their properties — so you must check these details out first of all.
