Where to find unique family ski holidays

You may be the type of family that goes skiing every year and want something a bit unique this time round. Perhaps you’ve never been before but want to break the stereotype of skiing holidays. Whatever your reason, there are plenty of unique family ski holidays that will have you itching to book straight away! Here’s how you find them and what to expect.

How to find unique family ski holidays

When it comes to looking for unique family ski holidays you need to first make a list. What exactly is it that you want from your vacation and all of the important (yet boring) vitals that need to be taken into account. Your list should look a little bit like this:

  • How many people are going?
  • Where would you like to go? (Europe, America, specific locations)
  • When would you like to go?
  • How would you like to get there? (Plane, train, auto-mobile)
  • Any specific requirements?

Budget

What will make the skiing holiday unique

The last point is quite possibly the most important, what will make the skiing holiday unique? Put the rest of them in order of priority for you and your family. If you are led by the purse strings then budget may be the most important, and so on.

Now you can look through various booking agencies and see what they have to offer, using your list as a guideline. You may find something on budget but that does not suit your specific requirements, or something that is where you want to be but far too expensive.

Whittle it down to the final three choices and then begin your hunt for their USP (unique selling point). Using your search engine of choice, look for some detailed reviews and guides about those particular places.

You will find several unbiased travel websites to be the best resources for this job, as those attached to a booking agency may just say that everything is perfect.

What to expect from unique family ski holidays
Once you have your list of possible destinations; it is time to see what is truly unique or special about that particular resort. As already mentioned, use travel websites that aren’t related to a booking agent in order to get the most honest and unbiased reviews.

If you are scratching your head, unsure of what unique family ski holidays could entail then think outside the box. Some ski resorts may have nearby fun parks or water parks that could provide a day away from the slopes. Others may be close to another resort that the children can spend a day or two on.

Several of the larger ski resorts in Europe are known for pairing together in order to create more entertainment for the families to go to visit. You may find that one of the destinations you have chosen is right next door to another world class resort, just type ski holidays in France and you will observe this.

If this is the case, find out if you are allowed to use the slopes, chutes and parks that are on offer with the resort. In most cases, the answer will be yes, as that is what they are specifically designed for. People can pick and choose which resort they want to visit on which day.

Other unique family ski holiday traits may be nearby entertainment such as shopping opportunities or a wide range of restaurants and bars. In Italy you can expect some stunning pizzerias, whereas in Austria it is all about home cooked Austrian cuisine!

Each destination will have something truly unique about it that will have a certain appeal to you and your family. When you’ve found something that makes your heart beat faster and your skin tingle then that’s the one you need to book!

Remember to think about what a unique family ski holiday means to each person on the list! From the little ones to the adults.
