If you are looking for a family friendly ski resort it is best to go for a compact resort where everything is close at hand. Resorts where there are activities other than skiing available are a bonus to give children other things to do.
When skiing with kids it is important to choose accommodation close to the slopes so they do not need to walk far with their skis and boots. Ski in ski out accommodation is best but another option is to choose ski accommodation which has a bus that stops outside to take you to the ski lifts.
Most of the ski resorts that Peak Retreats feature are suitable for skiing with children but there are a few which we would especially recommend as the best ski resorts for children. For example;
Aussois, Maurienne Valley
A charming, traditional resort which offers excellent value for money and a wide choice of non-skiing activities. Stay at Les Flocons d’Argent.
Morillon 1100, Grand Massif
Also known as Les Esserts, this is a purpose built pedestrian resort offering a small selection of restaurants, bars and shops. Stay in ski-in ski-out Le Buet.
Oz en Oisans, Alpe d’Huez
Although purpose built Oz is an attractive resort with a traditional atmosphere. It is a quiet alternative to Alpe d’Huez and traffic free making it perfect for children. Stay at ski-in ski-out Le Chalets des Neiges.
There are many other resorts that we would recommend for a family ski holiday. See our family skiing page for more information about the makings of a family ski holiday.
