There’s nothing better than going on a ski vacation with your family. However, it can be stressful if you don’t plan everything ahead of time and you’re traveling to a resort far away. Here are some tips on how you can have a fun, memorable trip without it being overwhelming.
1. Map Out Where You Want to Go
After you’ve narrowed down when you’d like to go on your ski trip, try to look for resorts that are family friendly if you have kids in the mix. Check out the resort’s Yelp reviews and ask your friends for recommendations. Do they have activities for children or child care? Is the resort close to your hotel or condo vacation rental? Do they offer slopeside accommodations so your family can get from there to the lifts easily? Try to anticipate ahead of time what your family will need and book lodging that will make it as stress-free as possible. On our site here, we have an interactive map that you can click on different regions you want to visit. Then go to the resort area and check out the many lodging deals we have. Though it might be hard to plan far in advance, know that some of the best deals of the season are offered before the season starts as “early booking” incentive.
2. Arrange Ski Lessons
If you or your children don’t have much experience on the slopes, you will all feel more confident once you’ve all received training from experienced instructors. Ask the ski schools if they have lessons or programs for different age groups or abilities. If most of the family is inexperienced, you may want to ask about group lessons for everyone to share together. We have deals for lessons on our site as well as discounted lift tickets for the whole family. Check out one of our partner ski resorts and grab the deals we offer.
3. Make Sure You Have the Right Gear
Next, try to prepare for the trip by bringing the right equipment and clothing. When you’re prepared it can make it easier for everyone to have a positive experience. If you don’t personally own ski equipment you can always lease or rent ski and snowboard equipment and clothing. Some stores offer different coupons and programs for a family with children so don’t be afraid to ask! Just pop into the area you prefer to ski at on our site here and you’ll see many deals and discounts for Ski Rentals. We also have a quick link of all of our Ski Rentals throughout North America!
