Single Parent Ski Holidays

Take your child skiing on this season on our single parents ski holidays!

The mountains your family and you, that's what its all about.

It doesn't get much better than soaking up the beauty of the mountains on one of our single parent ski holidays. Our one parent ski holidays are designed for anyone who wishes to bring their child to the pistes but without all the hassle. Treat you and your family to the holiday of a lifetime in the Alps and let us do the hard work.

Who Comes on our single parent holidays?

Single parents with children

We know it can be difficult to find other like minded people to go on holidays with as a single parent. With this in mind we have put together a week specifically designed for single parents. We take care of details while you get to enjoy a holiday with your child.

Parents but partner cant come

Sometimes your partner is just not interested in skiing, or perhaps they cant get time off so why not join one of our single parent ski weeks? A great opportunity to ski and socialise with other people on the mountains. Fabulous skiing, fabulous company.

Tips For Single Parents On Ski Holidays

Check out these useful tips for taking your child on a ski holiday alone.

1: Say hello! - Children have no problem making new friends on holidays, its a little more difficult for adults but start by saying hello, you never know who you will meet in a ski resort!

2: Head out early. Taking your child on a busy slope can be daunting but they are pretty much empty first thing in the morning, get there then and you and your children can enjoy empty pistes and you can relax!

3: Get a harness: It can be difficult to keep your toddler close while skiing, it may look funny but a harness with a long lead can be a lifesaver when they are first learning to ski!

4: Have an emergency plan. It can be a simple as giving them a card with your contact and chalet details on it. Or perhaps giving them a phone you can track or setting a pre arranged emergency meeting point. The important thing is that there is a plan.

5: Take your child skiing with you. They will learn plenty in ski school but there is no substitute for the real pistes. Bring your young child for a run or two on some nice open blues and watch their confidence and skill grow!

6: Bring your swim-wear! Most of the bigger or family orientated resorts now have indoor swimming pools which can be a great break from a day on the slopes. Also: Hot tubs!

7: Leave your travel company do the hard work. Most ski companies will take care of arranging all the extras (lift pass, ski hire, lessons, transfers, childcare) for you. They will do this at the same price you would pay for if you did it yourself but they take on all the hassle. Winner!

8: Take time for yourself. Most resorts have excellent accredited child care facilities which means you can get off on our own or with adult company for a few hours.

9: Go Sledding. Sledding with your children is probable the most fun one can have on the snow. There are excellent designated sledding areas in most resorts and renting a sled isn't expensive. Give it a go!.
