Family Ski Holidays in Europe

Europe has long been a favourite for family skiing holidays, with short journey times from the UK and many fantastic child-friendly ski resorts in budget-friendly Andorra, quaint Austria, the French Alps and French Pyrenées, Italy and Switzerland. See our special offers and latest deals on Europe family ski holidays with partners Pierre & Vacances, Esprit SkiMark WarnerCrystal Ski Holidays and Club Med.  

Opinions obviously vary, but the following are generally considered by experts to be among the best family ski resorts in Europe:
• Flaine, French Alps.
• Alpe d’Huez, French Alps.
• Avoriaz, French Alps.
• Sainte-Foy Tarentaise, French Alps.
• Obergurl, Austria.
• Lech, Austria
• Ylläs, Finland 

Scandinavia is not the first destination that springs to mind when it comes to family ski holidays – and not the cheapest, despite, with the exception of Finland, being outside the currently expensive Eurozone. However, the Nordic countries do have some entrancing resorts offering atmosphere in spades, and with some research and planning you can keep costs down.
