Anyone can go skiing. Whether you want to go with the family, a group of friends, or even solo, you’re sure to have an amazing time.
Going skiing can be a family affair. There are many family-friendly resorts all over Europe, and there are lots of fun snow-themed activities so little tots can get in on the action too. If the idea of taking the kids skiing with you sounds daunting, the good news is, it’s not as difficult as you might think.
Is it difficult to go skiing with children?
Technically a child can begin to ski as soon as they can run and jump, however, every child develops at their own rate. The best time for children to start learning to ski would be around the age of three to four years old. If you’re dreaming of a family skiing holiday, here are some tips to help make your first trip a success:
Most importantly, relax and have fun! You’ll all be learning a new skill, and you’ll get to spend quality time together among beautiful snow-covered scenery. The kids will fall and will no doubt get some bumps and bruises along the way, but they’ll bounce back, and it’s all part of the learning curve.
How can I organise a group ski trip with friends?
Getting away and hitting the slopes on a big group ski holiday with friends is a fantastic way to spend quality time together. There'll be plenty of fun, laughter, and no doubt a few embarrassing stories to tell afterwards, but there are also a few things to consider and plan in advance to ensure your ski trip goes as smoothly as possible.
Group ski holidays are all about finding the balance so that everyone has fun and gets to do what they want, while still spending time together. It can take some advance planning, but you’re sure to have a fun trip if you all work together.
How can I make new friends to go skiing with?
If your group of mates aren’t the type to go skiing, it can be great fun to go on your own. You can do what you want, when you want. But it can be nice to have someone to share a beer with at après time. If you’d rather go skiing with someone than alone, there are a few ways to meet new ski buddies:
Skiing is a pretty social activity, and it’s fun to meet new ski friends on and off the slopes. But don’t be afraid to enjoy some me-time too, so you can switch off and enjoy a well-earned break away from your usual busy routine back home.
