Family Guide

Family ski holidays are magical, from the first time you take on the slopes together to the cosy evenings by the fire. They’re made for treasuring every moment – mid-morning hot chocolates, ski-school celebrations and mastering those first turns. They’re for wrapping up warm and feeling the crunch, crunch, crunch under your feet. For snowball-fight squeals and looks of delight as you open the curtains to a fresh blanket of soft, white powder.

And best of all, whether your little ones are in nursery or in their twenties, spending quality time together in the snow never gets old. With lots of great ski schools, Crystal Childcare for 6 months to 8 years in five major resorts, lift-pass deals and plenty of off-slope activities, Crystal can help you make winter part of the family.


Skiing with Babies and Toddlers

It is truly incredible to be able to take your child on their first trip to the mountains. This could well be their first time in the snow and being able to share in this experience with them is truly a once-in-a-lifetime gift. Whether you’re helping them make their first snowman, sharing cuddles and hot chocolates in front of the fire or taking them to ride in a gondola (an experience many young children absolutely love), you will want to make sure you savour every precious moment.

As your teens find their ski feet, they will also strive for a bit more freedom, both on the slopes and in resort, so a good resort choice is key.
