If you’re desperate to get back on the slopes but are dragging your feet because of the children, relax. Crystal Ski Holidays cover just about anywhere there’s snow on the ground and are old hands at knowing what it takes to make a successful family skiing holiday.

Frequent concerns are often about whether you’ll have enough time to hit the slopes yourself and whether or not your children are actually going to like it. Crystal Ski Holidays are ideal for family-friendly ski hotels and holiday packages with many of their properties, whether catered or self-catering, having excellent childcare programmes or kids’ ski schools so that from the moment your children (and you) arrive, the fun will start.
If your kids are too young to don the skis, you can book them in to the Crystal full-day childcare (6 months to 4 years), knowing that as you head for the piste, they’ll be having a day of stories, singing, and arts & crafts. They won’t shed a tear as you head out the door. Just because they can’t ski doesn’t mean they won’t be braving the great outdoors, with sledging, bumboarding, snowy walks and snow painting all on the agenda, so they get the full experience of a wintry wonderland.
Older kids (3/4 – 11yrs) will love the Whizz Club that combines ski school with childcare. Dismiss any notions of having to carry your kids’ skis or your kids to the slopes, the childcare team will do all that for you. Picking up and dropping off, and making sure they’ve got all the right gear on them, leaving you time to relax and enjoy your time on the mountain.
The childcare doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. The Snuggle Club, available in selected properties, operates for up to 6 evenings during the week. Quiet play and bedtime stories gets everyone ready for bed, while you can relax and enjoy your meal and plan your next descent.
The hotels on their books differ, but all have a child-friendly theme in common. You’ll find them a short transfer from where you landed, close to the slopes for easy access and all with great childcare options and family-apres activitIes. You can expect large family rooms, kids’ clubs or play areas and pampering time for yourself with hydrotherapy suites and spas. Bliss.
