As we draw closer to the end of the 2017-2018 ski season, it is time to reflect on our achievements and accolades. You may have lost track of all of the awards we have won during the course of this season (2017-18) so we’ve summed up our successes below.
‘Best Family Ski Operator’ – Family Traveller Awards
Having initially been one of the 2000 nominated companies (which was decided by public vote), we progressed into the next round consisting of 240 companies in 20 categories and decided by industry-experts. Our fate was decided in late-November 2017 when our team attended the prestigious Family Traveller Awards in London. It was a tense evening with a lot at stake, however, there was a sense of relief and triumph when we were announced as the winner of the “Best Family Ski Operator” category.
Family Traveller is a renowned industry expert in family travel and serves as an established and reputable source of information for many families.
‘Best Family Ski Company’ – Angels & Urchins Family Travel Awards
Angels & Urchins (A&U) nominated us for the “Best Family Ski Company 2018” award at the start of the year due to our love for looking after families. In February 2018, A&U had confirmed that we had won the “Best Family Ski Company” category in their Spring Travel Special publication!
Angels & Urchins (A&U) are experts in family life in London. For nearly 17 years, they have produced newsletters for London families. A&U is a trusted voice for London families who would like travel advice, whilst also specialising in other areas such as events in London, parenting advice, kids’ fashion, education and school guides.

‘Best Family Holiday’ – MadeForMums Awards
Our most recent achievement was winning gold in the “Best Family Holiday” category of the MadeForMums Awards 2018. We found out the exciting news in late-March. This award marked the third we’d won this season. Unlike the other two awards, this was not just limited to the skiing industry. This meant we had to tackle more competition including beating family holiday operators in a range of travel-based industries.
The MadeForMums Awards involves placing the very best mum-focused products and services under the microscope. Industry experts, real mums, dads and their children, and celebrity parents joined the MadeForMums judging team to scrutinise us, while testers shared their experiences having tried and tested us and all other shortlisted products and services.
Hatrick of Awards
Looking back on this 2017-18 season, we can confidently say it has been a season of success. Winning not one or two, but now three awards (all in the space of a few months) should fill you with confidence that your family is in safe hands.
We pride ourselves in focusing solely for families. What makes these achievements all the more special is that all three awards are specific to the family travel industry – “Best Family Ski Operator” (Family Traveller), “Best Family Ski Company” (Angels & Urchins) and “Best Family Holiday” (MadeForMums). At Ski Famille, catering for the needs of families isn’t an add-on; it’s at the core of everything we do.
We are very proud of our awards as well as the powerful message it sends out. All three awards are a credit to the great resort team we have in France as well as the team in our UK office. Our hard work doesn’t stop there… now our aim is to retain these awards for a consecutive year!
Thank you Family Traveller, Angels & Urchins, and MadeForMums.
