It’s child’s play if you follow these simple lessons
BEING well pre- pared is the key to an enjoyable family ski holiday so I asked Crystal Ski Holidays product and sales manager Orla Markey, for her top family tips. Take it away Orla .... ‘Don’t be afraid of early morning flights with children – they’re going on holiday, not to school – so they won’t mind. Get to your resort early so you can have a look around with the kids, find out where the ski school meeting point is from the rep and get to the ski hire shop in the afternoon.
But before any of that, think about the kind of resort you want to visit and your accommodation.
If you have young children you’re guaranteed to be carrying their ski equipment in the mornings so if you’re staying in a larger resort where you have to take a ski bus to the lift, make sure the bus stop is near your hotel.
Staying in a compact resort means you won’t have far to go with ski equipment.
Walking in ski boots takes a bit of getting used to so a five-minute walk could turn into 15 minutes with young children and lots of ski poles!
If your kids are very young, try not to pick a resort more than two hours from the airport and make sure you have charged ipads or games to keep them entertained.
