Powder hounds (of all ages) step this way.

Whether your little monsters are beginners ripe for ski school or slightly larger monsters who are now better than Mum and Dad (we won't tell, promise), skiing is a fantastic family holiday option. And it's not all about Europe when it comes to choosing a destination either (although it's pretty darn awesome, if you don't mind us saying), Canada is home to the fantastic Whistler, while even farther afield are the Chilean Andes.

If you're planning a luxury family ski holiday with young children then much-loved children's party people Sharky & George, who we've joined forces with, will put together a carefully selected snow-themed goodie bag kitted with bits and bobs to keep them entertained throughout the trip.

Where to go
