If you’re thinking of taking your children on a skiing holiday this winter, Austria makes the perfect destination. After all, it’s the place where skiing began, so where better to introduce your children to this exhilarating winter sport? The picture postcard scenes will make for a wonderful setting as you take to the slopes. Austrian ski schools are among the most famous in the world, and for good reason. They’re well used to catering for families, and have lessons to suit all abilities. Part of the holiday experience is finding the right hotel, so you’ll want to be sure of staying in a pleasant hotel. Happily there are many family-friendly hotels, often family-run themselves, with lots of experience in making your stay memorable.
One of the best things about Austria as a family ski destination is its easy access from the UK. If you’re travelling with children, you want to avoid long-haul flights if you can. Not only do children get cranky and bored on longer flights, but the travelling time eats into your holiday time. With a flight time of less than 2.5 hours from the UK, Austria is very accessible for even the shortest ski trips, and you won’t suffer even a hint of jetlag. So why look further, when Austria has everything you need?
