Half Term Ski Holidays
The February half term ski holidays are the second most popular ski week (after New Year) of the season and as a consequence, this is a week where the early bird catches the worm. For family ski holidays, getting it right is so important and therefore we strongly recommend that you book as early as possible to secure the best family ski chalets, in the best family ski resorts, in the most family friendly, convenient locations.
Family Ski Resorts
Some ski resorts really are just made for the families and the half term break. High on our list is the Portes du Soleil with Chatel and Morzine in France, and Champery in Switzerland a particular favourite. Over 600km of pistes, heavily geared to beginners and intermediates place this as one of the top helf term venues. Prices are considerably lower than the more famous ski resort that for larger families makes it another great reason to ski there in February.
Also in France is the Paradiski ski area that is home to La Plagne and Les Arcs villages. Most ski chalets are either on, orhave close proximity to the pistes and whilst not the prettiest of alpine locations in some of the resorts, the family skiing more than makes up for this. La Plagne being better suited for families with beginners and Les Arcs progressing skiers towards and up to an intermediate level.
Luxury Half Term Chalets
For class, sophistication, true luxury and great family skiing, Davos and Klosters in Switzerland provides the perfect luxury destination for families.
Courchevel 1850 and 1650 and Meribel in the Three Valleys ski are of France will of course, quite rightly be high on many peoples lists for half term. Courchevel offers unparalleled luxury with a great beginner area just above the resort, whilst Meribel is situated in the centre of this extensive ski area that boast over 600km of pistes, most of which are high attitude, and is particularly suited for families with competent skiers of all ages. Elsewhere in France, Val d’Isere is popular and again provides some fabulous ski terrain, but is more suited for families again with competent skiers amongst it.
