Family Ski Holidays - Fun in the snow with all the family skiing!

Family Ski Holidays - Fun in the snow with all the family skiing!

It's no surprise that skiing holidays make the perfect family break. What could be better than spending quality time in stunning surroundings? And having fun doing something everyone can join in with? Our childcare options, child discounts and free ski pack items help make the most of your family ski holidays - they're what makes us a great choice for family skiing.

Family Ski Holidays



You can read all about the best resorts to visit as a family with our fantastic Insider's Guide: Best ski resorts for families! In this guide we cover everything you need to know about beginner slopes, lessons for children, extracurricular activities as well as a few things mum and dad might like to do on the side.  

How you choose to organize your holiday will depend on the age of your children; with non-skiing crèches, first class ski kindergartens and dedicated childrens' ski schools, your little ones can be on skis from 3 years up, or in safe hands having fun while you are on the slopes, and you can even take family ski holidays to meet Santa!

We are delighted to offer hundreds of free child places (first come, first served) combining our great value savings on children's lift passes, ski-school and equipment-hire, to make family holidays with Inghams more affordable than ever.
