Why we think multi-generational ski holidays are the next big thing for family skiing.
Bringing multiple generations together; mum, dad, grandparents and the children, can make for a great family holiday.
Whether you’re going away to spend quality time together, or to make up for the time lost at home due to busy schedules and other commitments, inviting the grandparents to join the annual family holiday is becoming increasingly popular.
Ski holidays in particular are great for multi-generational breaks, as they offer something for everyone. Our handpicked ski resorts provide a range of activities for all ages and skill levels, and when combined with our luxury chalet accommodation with in-chalet childcare, offer unrivalled destinations for memorable family ski holidays.
Parents and grandparents are then free to hit the slopes, with all three of our family-focused ski resorts offering a range of runs that cater for complete beginners to the most seasoned of skiers.
Eating out in La Plagne, Les Gets & Les Menuires
For those that fancy a slower pace of life, there are a great selection of cafes and restaurants, as well as spas and wellness centres dotted across La Plagne, Les Gets and Les Menuires, all providing perfect locations to relax and unwind.
Multi-Generational Family Ski Holidays in La Plagne
La Plagne offers reduced rate lift passes for families, as well as discounted senior passes for over 72’s. If you have a non-skier in the mix, senior visitors can also make the most of free pedestrian passes leaving them free to explore the ski area and make the most of the multitude of other activities that are available throughout the Alps.
Snowshoeing, dog sledding and ice climbing are just some of the opportunities on offer; or how about a visit up to the glacier – a magical winter wonderland that’s great for all generations to enjoy together.
Both our La Plagne chalets, Nicole and Delphine, offer flexible room combinations that are great for multi-generational families traveling together. With a range of family suites, and additional ensuite twin or double rooms, all within a relaxing home from home environment, you are sure to find an option to suit your family makeup.
Multi-Generational Family Ski Holidays in Les Gets
Like La Plagne, skiers in Les Gets can benefit from reduced lift passes for the over 65’s, as well as reduced pedestrian passes allowing access the many mountain restaurants and activities offered on the slopes.
Les Gets is also home to the Marmot Hotel and Spa which offers hydrotherapy baths, massage tables and sensory shower experiences, as well as a range of spa treatments, and is open to the public every day throughout the winter season.
In terms of chalets, our favourites for multi-generational breaks, are Chalet Marjorie, or Chalets Bogart and Bacall. All three of these chalets offer family suites along with separate ensuite twin or triple rooms, giving you flexible accommodation within some of the best family chalets in our programme.
Multi-Generational Family Ski Holidays in Les Menuires & Reberty 2000
Situated in the heart of the 3 Valleys, skiers holidaying to Les Menuires can also make the most of reduced family and senior lift passes. Those over the age of 74 ski for free, and for those that would rather take a more relaxed approach to their family holiday, the resort offers a wide range of non-skiing activities.
For guaranteed family fun, the Roc n Bob offers an adrenaline fuelled toboggan run through the resort, or head to the nearby Aqua Park for an indoor pool, sauna and Jacuzzi as well as a children’s soft play area – the ideal place for an afternoon with the grandparents, whilst mum and dad hit the slopes!
Our Katie chalets are situated in a prime position within the small village of Reberty 2000 just above the centre of Les Menuires. With fantastic views across the piste, an indoor spa area and a range of ensuite double and twin rooms in addition to our family suites, they provide the perfect accommodation for your multi-generational break.
So, next time you are considering a family holiday, why not bring the grandparents along?
Bring the 3 generations together for a family break to remember in the heart of one of the best ski regions in France. Enjoy luxury catered chalet accommodation in a home from home environment complete with in-chalet childcare, and create family memories that will last a lifetime.
