Are there places that include all ‘the gear’ as I don’t want to break the bank on our first experience.
We are thinking of April…
Throw your recommendations at me please!
Going in December/ January is usually cheaper, but this year there wasn’t much snow unless you were higher up. A friend booked through a travel agent for Bulgaria and the agent changed their resort a week before travel to one higher up due to lack of snow. They wouldn’t have been able to change had they booked everything independently.
You will need your clothing/gloves/goggles - in Northern Ireland Lidl do a ski sale each year in early November (£30 jacket/£20 salopettes and the quality is decent) but boots/skis/helmet are all able to be hired in advance for your stay.
Folgaria in Italy is a great resort for beginners with a beautiful quaint village. We go there most years mid March on our school ski trip. Have tried other places too, but keep returning to Folgaria. Andalo is beautiful too, but Folgaria is better for beginners.
Honestly, get the family a try ski at an indoor ski slope first.
Once you’ve done that, recommendations are easy, but in April the way the season is going, there won’t be much snow around……
As snow tends to be gone or only made by snow cannon at that time of year
We live / work in a ski resort village in France
Check out samoens , morzine , avoriaz , flaine
Samoens definately have spa facilities
These are all good ski resorts you can ski in to one from the other
Hire ski equipment local
Ski holidays never end up being on the cheaper side what with clothes n extras
Try come march ( Feb is most busy and most ££££ ) half term across France over the whole month and then end of the month for other European countries and UK
Italy - is also nice .we are 40 mins from there so some times cross the border to visit
Cheaper then France for food wine etc
