"A ski company that have really thought about what makes…"
A ski company that have really thought about what makes a family ski holiday. Good transfers, a range of accommodation, fantastic English speaking ski school full of English kids, flexible length of holiday- particularly useful for Xmas- and friendly, genuinely personal service. Other major positives the Italian food - they just take it so seriously, on or off the mountain and compared to French resorts it's just much cheaper - you could get a coffee for between 1 and 2 euros and the kids loved the food too. Ski2 know every mountain cafe and lodge and can make great foodie recommendations - our favourite was ski in - skidoo out!
There are a few downsides, Champoluc is fab for intermediates, off pisters or actually complete beginners, but there are no easily accessible blue runs -it goes pretty much straight from green to red. And the town is spread out on a road so not a cutesy alpine car-free village.
But my eldest two kids loved the ski guiding experience with the lovely English speaking and v cool dude Josh. My youngest daughter made more progress in a week than in 3 weeks in French ski school. Both daughters also went outdoor skating, ds went sledging, all made friends and we all enjoyed the Relais' new outdoor jacuzzi and fab evening meals and it all worked well for us .
New Year's eve was fantastic - great party, bit like a crazy wedding, with some hilarious music choices and lots of kids dancing, but somehow it worked. The children genuinely enjoyed it all and they don't always love skiing - and we do - so we'll definitely go back.Read moreLess
