Skiing at any time of the season makes for a fantastic family holiday, but it’s over Christmas and New Year that a special ski holiday can become a magical one. Escape from the hustle and bustle that comes hand in hand with the festive season and head off to your very own winter wonderland.
We all dream of a white Christmas and a ski holiday can make that dream a reality. Imagine the excitement of waking up on Christmas morning in a luxurious alpine chalet surrounded by picturesque snow-capped mountains. Hit the slopes for an invigorating day of skiing (making time for that mountain lunch on a sunny terrace), before heading back to your luxury chalet to be wined and dined by your personal chalet chef and host.
Family ski specialists, Ski Famille provide a traditional Christmas experience including a visit from Father Christmas himself who will hand-deliver your children’s presents on Christmas day. Enjoy some family time beside a roaring log fire, before settling down to a delicious three course Christmas meal complete with crackers and a choice of wines – all without having to lift a finger. Finish the day by relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of bubbly whilst the washing up is being done by the friendly chalet team.
Ski resorts traditionally go to great lengths to ensure Christmas in the mountains feels really special. In the resort of Les Gets in the Portes du Soleil your children can pay a visit to Father Christmas in the Enchanted forest, discover his workshop and meet his little helpers. Ski Famille can book this excursion on your behalf.
If Christmas plans are already in the diary, New Year is an equally fantastic time for a family ski holiday. There really is no better way to see in 2018 than sipping champagne next to a roaring fire surrounded by your closest family and friends.
Ski Famille provide a spectacular three course evening meal, specially created for New Year’s guests. Spend the evening dining with family and friends before taking heading out to enjoy the celebrations taking place across your resort. Finish the night off with a spectacular firework display before taking on that red run first thing on New Year’s morning.
The festive period is about spending time together as a family, but it’s also nice to have some adults-only time. Booking your ski holiday with a specialist gives you access to childcare providing you with the flexibility and freedom to spend time both alone and en-famille. Ski Famille’s À La Carte childcare is provided in the chalet you stay in, meaning no snowy trudge to a centralised crèche. Private nannies will take your children to and from ski school as well as providing wrap-around care back at your chalet when they aren’t on the slopes.
Do something different this festive season. Head for the Alps and enjoy a Christmas or New Year holiday the whole family will remember for years to come.
