One of the challenges when planning a family holiday is making sure whatever activities are booked, everyone feels considered and will be entertained. It is important that the holiday time spent together is actually fun for the whole family. Where parents can relax and reconnect and the younger ones have enough age-appropriate fun to make it memorable.
If you are looking to book a snow holiday break with the family and are just not sure where to go or which destination will tick all the boxes, you are in luck! The Alps have so many family-friendly resorts to choose from that will appeal to guests of all ages and cater to skiers and non-skiers alike.
Snow or Sunshine? You can have both!
Not only does Alpe d’Huez cater for skiers of all ages, but it is also perfect for non-skiers too! The resort is located in the heart of the Alps in the bustling region of the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine – which is one of the largest ski domains in the Alps with 111 runs of all colours to cater for beginners and advanced skiers. Treat the family to a glorious seven-day snow getaway at Alpe d’Huez and spend days skiing in forests, snow-shoe-walking across mountainsides, and exploring the idyllic countryside. Alpe d’Huez offers so much in terms of recreational areas from a slalom studio, boardercross zone, snowpark, beginners area and a space cordoned off for sledging. For the adventurous, you can sign up for a late-night ski run to get that adrenaline going. With more than 300 days of sunshine, this is the perfect destination to reconnect – groups of friends and couples will love the cosiness of the resort. In the evening wind the day up with great evening entertainment with live shows, music and DJ sets.
