The key is to be organized!
Buy what you need before your arrive at the slopes. The prices at the ski slopes can be very high and in smaller resorts extras are very limited
Make sure your children stay warm ... warm means happy!
Good socks, gloves and we suggest shellaclava for under helmets are the basics to keeping warm.
Have fun; use the slopes not just for skiing but tobogganing and snowballing
Look for a centre that has staff that speak your language, it will make your child feel more comfortable.
At most reports or hotels you can arrange buggy hire. Check it out before you go as these will be suitable for the snowy conditions and if you only need it on the odd occasion it saves you taking yours.
Ski School Basics
If your children are going to ski school make sure the staff speak your language.
Check the group sizes, some take to many children and they end up spending half the day waiting for others.
Get them into the correct level group. To low and they will be hanging around to advanced and they will be disheartened.
At the end of the week there is normally a race at most Europe resorts. This can be great fun and chance for the children to show you their new skills. It’s a great way to finish the week.
Book in advance for the best deals. Try out Snowbrainer with over 600 ski shops they are sure to be able to help
At Skiweb we encourage everyone to wear helmets old and young! At some resorts it is compulsory but don’t worry you can hire helmets.
Make it a part of your kit there are some great colours to chose from or you could jazzy them up by using a helmet cover. Here's one we love!
