Ski holidays with childcare

Skiing as a family is a magical experience, but why don’t you let us do the planning, leaving you to have the fun. Whether your children are skiers or non-skiers, babies or school age, our comprehensive childcare programme from 4 months, superb nannies, recommended ski schools and free evening crèche, makes for a relaxing holiday all round.

Families can enjoy our ski resorts from December to April, including over the festive period when our Christmas Ski Holidays offer an unforgettable white Christmas for both children and parents alike. Visit one of our family friendly snow-sure resorts in France, Austria or Italy.

In-house crèches

Our family chalet hotels are fully equipped, with in-house crèches full of toys and fun, plus qualified British nannies who offer a ski school drop off and pick up service so parents can make the most of their day out on the slopes.

Chalet hotels perfect for families

Family skiing holidays take some planning and with that in mind we have selected 6 of our chalet hotels as the best for families. We want to make it easy for the whole family in these hotels and resorts, so we’ve secured ski school places for your children with our recommended ski schools, we’ve arranged our childcare service so that it dovetails with ski school times enabling our nannies to drop off and collect for a supervised lunch. High tea is served at 5pm for the younger children and in the evenings we run a supervised evening listening service allowing parents to have the evenings to themselves. 

We asked Hervé Favre, founder of Alpine ski school Evolution 2, at what age children can start learning to ski?
