Family ski holidays are probably the ultimate ski holiday. It doesn’t matter how avid a skier you maybe, watching you son or daughter carve their first turns is a heart rendering moment that proud parents will never forget. More over, once the family has the bug, whatever their age, it is the holiday above all others that families love most and can, and nearly always do, continue long into their teenage and often adult years. A great way to  spend time with sons and daughters.

Mixed Ability Family Groups

Mixed ability family groups can be challenging task for the family member tasked with finding the ski chalet and family ski resort that will keep everyone happy. So here’s our list of great resorts that should tick most boxes.

Lets first start with the obvious choices. The Three Valleys in France with Courchevel and Meribel have something for all, more than 600km of high altitude pistes, it is a family favourite, particularly with families with older teenage children who are competent skiers. Simarly, although slightly less kms of pistes (but plenty for all to ski in one week) is Val d’Isere and Tignes. Again, favoured more for older family groups than younger ones, Val d’Isere will be loved by older teenagers for its fabulously fun atmosphere on and off the slopes.

Staying in France, we rate highly the Paradiski ski region, with Les Arcs particularly good for offering good high altitude skiing for all abilities, particularly intermediate groups. Lower in altitude, but equally good, particularly beginners and intermediates, is the Portes du Soliel with Chatel and Morzine in France, and not forgetting Champery in Switzerland as excellent family ski resorts, if not quite as challenging as some mentioned previously.

Outside of France, Zermatt in Switzerland is a fabulous family ski resort with a stylish luxury ski town, great intermediate and expert skiing, although for beginners it as adequate by its high standards, rather than exceptional.

Luxury Family Ski Holidays

Family_games_room.jpgThe Three Valleys (Courchevel and Meribel) and Espace d’Killy (Val d’Isere) mentioned previously deserve a place here too, as does Zermatt, although there is one ski destination we think hails over all others (Zermatt does come close) for style, luxury, and family skiing, and that is the ski resorts of Davos and Klosters in Switzerland. The resorts ooze an understated class and style, whereas the skiing, mainly for beginners and intermediates, is just ideal we think for most families.

In Austria, Lech has to be considered, with beautifully manicured pistes and a high class selection on ski chalets and luxury hotels.

Idealic Family Ski Resorts

It might surprise no one that this section we start with Austria where for the step back in time, traditional alpine family ski holiday, no other country comes close.

Number one has to be Kaprun and Zell am See, although we recommend Kaprun for it gourgeous village, stunning castle that acts as the picture perfect backdrop, and the wonderful glacier skiing above it. Whilst slightly lacking on the expert level, if this isn’t a significant criteria, we think it should be high on any family ski list. Saalbach also deserves a mention here for its pretty Austria village and over 250km of skiing.
