Taking a skiing holiday is perfect for mixed parties and family holidays as there is so much to do both on and off the slopes. There are a wide range of activities on the pistes; from snowboarding to cross-country skiing or free style skiing. If you don’t want to spend your days on the slopes on a family skiing holiday there are plenty of other entertainments in a ski resort to keep everyone happy.

If you want lots of nightlife for you and your friends, then head somewhere with great bars and restaurants. Alternatively, if you want to learn how to ski you should head for a resort with great ski schools and smaller runs.

On the other hand, when you’re not testing your skills on the slopes, you could be pampering yourself in a spa or trying your hand at other winter sports such as ice climbing, tobogganing or even taking a snow shoe hiking trail.
