Find the ideal resort to take your family and kids on a ski holiday

Family skiing holidays in France are great fun for all members of the family, from the oldest to the youngest! The French Alps have superb family friendly skiing and ski holiday resorts, from ski-chalets to apartments close to the ski slopes so you don’t waste time and effort in travelling there. Tignes, La Plagne and Menuires have child-friendly slopes, snowboarding, resorts with inclusive child-care and several off-slope activities for the entire family.

A family ski holiday in France will offer you the opportunity to relax, rest and have fun.

• Ski in La Plagne: La Plagne is made up of 10 'villages', most of which provide loads of ski-in ski-out accommodation making La Plagne great for family ski holidays. Each village is self-sufficient with shops, bars and restaurants. La Plagne offers skiing for all; beginners and intermediates are very well served while boarders and freestyle skiers have the choice of a 2.5 hectare snow park, a half pipe, and a fun park to whet their appetites.

• Ski in Tignes: Tignes is the perfect resort for a fantastic ski holiday in the Savoie region of the French Alps. With its fabulous selection of spacious, family-friendly holiday rental accommodation and its assortment of reputed ski schools, Tignes is a great place to start your family off on their first ski footings.

• Ski in Menuires: If you want to spend your family ski holidays in France, consider Les Menuires. Internationally known for the quality of its ski slopes, you can enjoy nature activities, shopping, spas and wellness centres for the complete family skiing experience.

Get the Most on a Family Skiing Holiday in France

With quiet slopes, plenty of fun activities and cheaper prices than the big-name resorts – even during holiday season – many small ski areas in Tignes, La Plagne and Menuires are ideal for families.

• In many destinations, children get free lift passes, and often free helmets too. Children have their own areas on slopes, and ski resorts provide creches and nannies.

• Based on the ages of your kids, you can choose from a wide variety of child-care and kids’ activities; serviced by English speaking staff.

• They have special ski-schools for kids and top-notch ski academies where patient instructors will make the rigours of skiing fun, pain-free, and rewarding.

• If your kids don't take to skiing or snow-boarding, they can try snow-shoe wildlife safaris, ice-skating, dog-sledding or tubing (sledging on inflatable tubes) or many more off-slope sports.

• You can leave older kids to ski a few runs by themselves on safe pistes that lead back to the resort centres and all accommodation. Snow scooter hires and in-house entertainment systems can keep teens busy when they’re not on the slopes.

• Many modern resorts have games rooms with Wiis, Playstations, snooker table and board games, kids' DVDs, pools, a weekly kids' activity day, free sledges and, for any “gourmands” in waiting, regular kids' cooking and "mocktail" mixing classes.

• You can choose family ski accomodation with a larger capacity, so if another family wants to join you, there will still be room.

Family skiing holidays are a fantastic experience for the whole family to spend time together, skiing, sledging or simply playing in the snow. Picking the right family ski resort and accommodation to match your family’s preferences and ski experience will ensure a successful family skiing holiday.
