With school holidays being the most popular times for families to come skiing, it's important to book any childcare well in advance. Places can often be limited and if you've got children of different ages you may find looking for different types of childcare tricky, so book ahead to avoid disappointment. Lots of families book for the next season when their holiday this year has just finished, so join in with this way of thinking and you shouldn't miss out on getting a place.

Ski Schools

The same applies for ski schools and private ski instructors, the earlier you book the more chance you have of securing a place. Group lesson numbers are capped so ski instructors get booked up fast on peak dates. Take the worry out of getting a place and book in early.
