As a couple or with children: our tips and advice on when to go skiing

Publié le 26/09/2023 - Rédigé par Marie
The 3 Vallées ski area is a must-see destination for all winter sports enthusiasts, promising an idyllic winter getaway.

While you're already looking forward to the opening of the resorts, it's not always easy to know when to go skiing.

With or without children, snow or sunshine, or even prices, discover the essential criteria for booking your stay at the best time!

Which dates to choose: school vacations or not?

During the school vacations, the number of people in the resorts is inevitably higher.

While all the facilities and organizations take this into account to make your journey easier on the road and more comfortable on the slopes, you'll still have to deal with the large number of holidaymakers on site.

If you don't have children, or if you have young children, it's advisable to choose dates outside the school vacations for your stay in the resort.

We do, however, recommend resorts such as Courchevel 1850, which offer the same facilities and services throughout the season. And if you have children, you can be sure of a wide range of services to make your family vacation the ideal one.

Snow and sunshine: finding the right compromise

Resorts generally open from December to April. A 4-month period during which weather conditions vary and can help you define the dates of your ski trip.

In fact, if you're a powder enthusiast and want to make the most of good snow conditions, January and February are the best months.

On the other hand, if you're introducing your youngest children to the joys of skiing, we recommend avoiding the months with the lowest temperatures for the best experience.

Your budding skiers will be more at ease and will be able to discover winter sports in the best possible conditions if you opt for a spring holiday, between March and April.

Take advantage of resort offers on a budget

With or without children, the question of budget is important for all holidaymakers. To ensure that you keep your expenses under control, without ever compromising on the quality of your experience on site, don't hesitate to take advantage of the offers proposed by resorts and ski schools to know when to go skiing.

Whether it's a family offer, or discounts at the beginning or end of the season, you'll be able to save money on your stay with ease. It's the perfect opportunity to treat yourself as a couple, with friends or family, for a winter getaway that's sure to be full of thrills and excitement.
