I’m not going to lie, family ski holidays can be stressful, expensive and you will no doubt wonder what on earth you are doing as you are trying to carry all the children’s gear, and them, through deep snow trying to find the ski school!

However, you can avoid these stressful situations by researching the ski resort you’re planning to visit and find a chalet company who will have everything covered, ski resorts such as Morzine are keen to welcome children of all ages to the slopes and have a fantastic range of English speaking ski schools and catered chalet companies for you to visit.

Chalet companies such as AliKats, an award winning chalet company set in the scenic area of Montriond organise everything from the airport transfer to the ski hire, ski school, passes and transports to and from the lift stations. Not only that, but the hosts cook up a fabulous hot breakfast everyday, minus chalet day off, to get you piste ready and at the end of the day, you always walk into an Alikats chalet smelling the delicious aromas coming from the kitchen.

Kat, the owner and head chef, takes great pleasure in planning delicious three course meals for you to enjoy, there is never a chance to go hungry at Alikats!

So, I know what you are thinking. What do we do with the children whilst we are enjoying all these things? You have a number of options, there are creches, private nanny companies or you could bring with you, your own private holiday nanny. How very decadent!

Vacation Nannies are a specialist nanny agency who can help you find the perfect holiday nanny to match your family. This way you will have childcare help on call right throughout your holiday. She will be able to deal with ski school collections and pickups, kids meal times whilst you’re in the hot tub and be your in-house chalet night-off babysitter.

This option may sound very personal, but in a shared catered chalet this option can work brilliantly. A ski holiday as a family is a place where fantastic memories are made and an activity you can share together in years to come.
