With only a few weeks to go until the end of the ski season, there is still some availability for great family ski holidays or group ski breaks. Choose your resort carefully to ensure the best skiing conditions – ideally high altitude for perfect powder, with a wide variety of runs for all levels of experience. Val d’Isere, at 1850m, is one of the best high-altitude ski resorts in Europe, if not the world. You’ll get a decent tan and come back honed and fit, what more could you ask for? For a vibrant après-ski scene, Val d’Isere has that magical combination of powder and party that makes it one of the top ski resorts in the world.
Our fully-catered ski lodges are perfect for family Easter skiing holidays as everyone can relax and there is plenty of space for the children to run around inside. There is also lots of flexibility with meal times, and your chef will ensure that everyone is happy with the daily menu. Our luxury chalets offer privacy and space for individuals with large communal areas for getting together at the end of the day.
If your Easter ski holiday is going to be your first skiing trip this season, try and stick to an exercise programme over the next few weeks to build stamina and improve your flexibility. This should include some running, which is a great way to build strength in your calves and hamstrings. Cycling is also a good all-rounder for aerobic exercise. If you’re a member of a gym or have a personal trainer, they should be able to advise you of other useful exercises.
Once you’re on holiday, try and remember to do your warm up exercises each morning. Doing this will help reduce the risk of injury, encourage greater blood supply to your muscles and wake you up properly!
