Oh yes! It’s that time of year again! Winter, snow, holidays, stollen bites and mulled wine, I love it! And every year we have the privilege of going snowboarding.
Of course the experience of going snowboarding with kids (very young ones at that) is a very different experience than when we went just the two of us.
Instead of going out from the first lift at 9am until the last lift at 5pm, we are taking turns between snowboarding and babysitting.
Instead of going out for late night crepes (oh yes I could eat one everyday) and a well deserved beer after a full day on the slopes, you’re getting the kids fed and into bed.
And instead of chucking your ski clothes on while still half asleep at the crack of dawn to catch that first lift, you’re having to dress little kiddies in their hundreds of layers and it’s THEN that they decide they need a wee!
Yes winter holidays with young kids has the potential to be very stressful, but as I near my second ski holiday with my kiddies I feel confident that I can pass on some tips for helping your prep go smoothly and better still, making sure you have the best holiday with your family!
Please keep in mind when speaking about travel distances, I am speaking in relation to the UK 🙂 but wherever you live in the World, the tips of travelling will be helpful.
