YES or NO? Ski holiday with young kids…YES, we will!! How do you have a relaxed ski holiday with a 1 and 3 year old? I will share our experience with you on my blog the coming weeks.
Looking at ski holidays you are probably a lover or a hater.. We are definitely lovers! We love being outdoors in the nature, gliding from the snowy mountains, enjoy a well-deserved lunch, get on the ski’s again and end the day with a beer at the bar. I expect our sky holiday with kids to be a little different… Different not less fun.
That’s why we love to go on a skiing trip with our 1 and 3 year old. Yes 1 is a little young to try skiing, but our 3 year old should be old enough to give it a try. My mental picture: we, enjoying the snow on our ski’s, 3 year old is having ski lessons and our 1 year old… Hmmm what should we do with our 1 year old?
Our do’s and don’ts to plan a relaxing week in the snow:
*Don’t drive/ fly to far
*Do rent a chalet or cottage on a park with facilities for the kids
*Do invite family (grand)-parents), of course because you love having them around and it comes in very handy as they love babysitting the kids
I love it when a plan comes together! We rented a beautiful cottage in Germany. Only a 4 hour drive, with a pool for the kids to enjoy. Of course we hope for lots of snow. Looking at weatheronline.com, it should start snowing from Friday onwards. As we are arriving next Monday, it means fresh snow, couldn’t be better!
Packing our stuff the coming days and off we go! Yes! Looking forward to our ski holiday with young kids!

*Buy cheap outfits for the snow as the kids only wear it 1 season
*Take a baby carrier with you, as a stroller and snow don’t work well together: http://www.babymaxi.com/42-ergobaby-carrier
*If you are travelling in a small car, or carrying lots of stuff, rent roof bars and a roof box
