With the summer holidays now a distant memory, you might fancy the idea of escaping again this winter. If so, why not start planning your family break in the mountains? Whether you want to hit the ski slopes, enjoy a snowball fight or share a fondue, a winter family holiday is a great way of spending quality time together. And, for a trip that won't break the bank, here are some great winter holiday ideas.
Low-cost options for hitting the slopes
Save money by hiring your equipment online
Equipment hire companies can sometimes offer attractive prices for reserving online, as it helps them to match demand in advance. You can benefit from reductions of up to 25% and save time by not having to wait around at the hire shop. And the faster you’re ready, the sooner you can hit the slopes!
Book the kids' ski or snowboard lessons in advance
After a long day in the snow, no doubt you'll want to spend time together as a family in the evening. Booking a family room in a hotel near the slopes works out cheaper than reserving several rooms. It also means you can tuck your youngest child in, exhausted by all that fresh air, while your eldest tells you all about their exciting skiing adventures! In addition, the Mercure Les Deux Alpes 1800 and the Mercure Les Arcs 1800 each offers the option of a hotel-based children’s club that will allow you to ski in total peace!
