Ski Dazzles Top Tips for Enjoying a Fabulous Family Ski Holiday in La Tania!

Check out guest blogger, Ski Dazzle’s Top Tips for enjoying a fabulous family ski holiday in La Tania!

Taking your children skiing is a great experience. Making unforgettable family memories, with activities the whole family can enjoy together. La Tania is famously known as one of the most family-friendly ski resorts in the Alps, and it is perfect for your next ski trip with kids.

  • Car-free

The centre of La Tania is small and free of cars. Along with sledging happening most evenings and a small playground, it’s perfect for families. Also, the tourist office hosts kids’ activities each week, so be sure to check in when you arrive in resort to see what is on.

  • Child-Friendly Accommodation

If you’re staying with Ski Dazzle, our knowledgeable and experienced team are on hand to make sure you have everything you need so that your family holiday is as restful as possible! In each chalet you’ll find an assortment of books and board games, as well as DVDs and British television channels to keep them entertained. For smaller children, we’re fully equipped with high-chairs and cots.

But most importantly, when it comes to mealtimes, we cook separate meals for children. Our chefs are known to whip up a mean spaghetti Bolognese, and homemade pizzas always make the list. We also can also whizz up some fruit or veg for babies.

  • Rent baby and toddler gear and toys

You don’t need to worry about packing absolutely everything, you can rent it! There is a great baby hire service in the Three Valleys. Holiday Baby Hire has a large range of kids gear on rent just for your stay. From buggies and baby backpacks, to toys and books, to potties and baby monitors. Everything is high quality and the items are carefully cleaned and safety checked each time they’re rented out.

It’s great way to have more of the comforts of home for your little one, without having to lug everything out to the Alps.

  • Ski Schools

Children aged 4 and up can start to learn to ski. Ski schools these days are much more customer-oriented and focused on the children learning through play. Gone are the days of instructors shouting drills. There are a handful of ski schools we recommend that are in English and offer small groups.

Putting children in group lessons is the most cost-effective option. Plus, it’s great fun for children to learn with others of their same age and ski ability.

We do recommend you book well in advance, especially during Feb Half Term and other school holidays, as lessons book up quickly.

  • Child Care

Whether you’re looking for someone to help care for your children once they have finished their ski lessons, or you have tiny ones who aren’t skiing yet, you may need child-care whilst on your ski trip.

In La Tania, there is an in resort creche that offers quality child-care and is conveniently located near to the gondola. Or if you’d rather, a private nanny can be arranged to come to your chalet. Available for child-care in both day and evening time, perfect if you would like an adult’s night out!

  • Non-Skiing activities

What else can you get up to when the kids are done skiing, or maybe just not interested? Here are just a few options.

Sledging – Kids as little as 6 months can enjoy sledging on a gentle slope. The centre of La Tania turns into an informal sledge run after the lifts close.

Soft Play – For those not-so-sunny days where you’d rather stay inside, Courchevel 1850 has a soft play area. Free to use, the soft play area is situated just near the bus stop in the bottom of the Croisette.

Swimming – Head up to Aquamotion for a day of swimming. Pools, slides, diving boards, surf wave and a child’s area for smaller ones are bound to keep the kids entertained for an afternoon.

The key to a perfect family ski holiday is keeping the kids happy. We know that happy kids = happy parents!
