Ridges and sharp peaks blanketed in snow, powder-covered glaciers and gently rolling forests conjure up a magical image. It’s no wonder a ski holiday tops most families wish lists, providing an exciting activity in a winter wonderland setting.
Whether exploring the craggy peaks in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains in Canada or discovering the charming alpine villages of Europe, children are fully engaged and entertained with activities galore. Learning to ski or snowboard, broadening social skills, boosting confidence and cardiovascular health, winter sports are a wonderful experience for children and adults alike. Exploring a mountain, with that sense of altitude and remoteness, is an adventure like no other and for many, winter holidays become a regular event.
Wherever you choose to go, the extraordinary setting becomes even more magical at dusk when the last pale wash of sky transforms into thousands of twinkling stars. Sipping a hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows on a crackling log fire listening to the laughter and snow-crunching sounds of skiers just returned for the day are those feel-good memories to last a lifetime. For adults, this is an ideal holiday, but for children, this is the stuff of dreams.
