Arosa

This sheltered and sunny resort has been awarded the “Families Welcome” quality label and has lots to offer for a fun and relaxing stay.

The Arosa JUNIOR Club makes learning to ski or snowboard lots of fun and kids can even have a go on the junior half-pipe, experiencing their first taste of these sports in a safe environment.

The ski kindergartens are equipped with easy to use “magic carpet” lifts, making the introduction to snowsports as easy as possible.

Throughout the resort, businesses such as hotels and restaurants make their youngest guests feel extra welcome, with special menus, gifts and activities for the whole family.

And for a relaxing, kid-free evening, why not get in contact with the tourist office who can supply you with the contact details of local baby-sitters?

Gstaad

The popular resort of Gstaad and the surrounding Gstaad Mountain Rides snowsports area has a huge variety of runs so every member of the family will find something to suit their level.

The ski area has a number of learning parks which are well-equipped for the young (and not so young!) learners who need to practise their skills and build confidence before heading out onto the pistes.

For older, more experienced kids, there are several snow parks which are great for perfecting technique, and there are also opportunities to have a first taste of freeriding.

Of course, visitors are not limited to just skiing and snowboarding, and your kids are sure to be enchanted with sledding, a husky tour and a spot of ice-skating.

With such a variety of family-friendly activities on offer, the only difficulty you and your family will have will be deciding which was your favourite holiday moment!

Klosters

This resort may be well-known for regularly hosting members of European royal families, but it’s perfectly adapted to the needs of your family as well.

The highlight of the resort is Madrisa Land, an adventure park with fun for everyone, including a tubing run, a steering track and the chance to do a timed giant slalom run.

Parents can head off to enjoy the varied pistes on the sunny Madrisa terrace, while the kids are looked after by professionals and can learn to ski or snowboard, or take part in activities such as ice hut building or tobogganing.

Other mountains in the Davos Klosters ski area also have special children’s lands and there is a good range of family accommodation and restaurants available. At Klosters, the service is so family-friendly you’ll end up feeling like royalty!

Lenzerheide

The lovely sunny valley where Lenzerheide is located makes a winning choice for a family holiday.

After a holiday here, you can be certain that your little ones’ favourite new sport will be skiing, thanks to the great introduction they’ll get to the sport here.

The Auarara Winterland gives the kids a chance to get used to using lifts and runs, and gives the parents a chance to head out to the well-prepared slopes of the main ski area know that the kids are in great hand and having the time of their life in the ski kindergarten.

The resort village itself has lots of family-friendly accommodation and when you come off the slopes tired and hungry after a long day, you can take the whole family out for a delicious meal or make the most of childcare services offered by many hotels and apartments to enjoy an adult-only evening.
