Vacations centered on winter sports are often a favorite pastime for active families who love to ski! From Colorado to resorts in France, Switzerland, and Italy, countless destinations worldwide cater to whatever ski vacation with kids you’re searching for. Authentic contributor reviews also give you a better idea of what to expect when you arrive at these locations; whether that’s amenities or the most kid-friendly slopes around town. Young kids can work on their pizza wedge while tweens hone their advanced skills to help them progress. Watch them enjoy their time on and off the mountain like never before! Limited child-to-instructor ratios and increasingly segmented age groups are also improving the on-mountain learning experience. An emphasis on base-area activities and events is also adding more family fun to the after-ski routine.

Consider choosing U.S. locations like Maine or Lake Tahoe for your next ski vacation to glide past stunning coastal landscapes. As a plus, U.S. resorts usually offer new parents child care and babysitting programs, sometimes available for kids as young as 6 months! As for those hard to impress teens? Whistler Blackcomb’s ginormous mountain offers a challenge for even the most seasoned skiers! Or, you could also jet off to Austria, spending your days exploring quaint European villages throughout the Alps. And, children’s areas often roll out supervised nighttime activities and space to just hang or play games! No matter what winter sports your kids enjoy or where you spend your ski vacation, families can end each day unwinding with delicious hot cocoa around the fireplace.
