Scroll down for our hand-picked recommendations for family holidays with Esprit Ski.

Their latest add-on deals to make life easier for parents of young children include a baby welcome pack with all the essentials, so you can travel there that little bit lighter (there’s also a pushchair carriage meaning you can hold on to the pram until you board the plane), and rooms stocked with everything necessary for little ones (cots, sterilisers, etc). Kids aged 8+ are now able to choose to join adults and older siblings at the adult dinnertime for that all-important family bonding.

Getting kids to and from the slopes can be the hardest thing, so let someone else do all the work and take advantage of the Ski Chaperone service; picking up excited youngsters and depositing them back once they’re worn out. They’ll have plenty to regale you with after a day with a local Teen Class or Junior Academy.

Everyone can get encumbered with all the skiing paraphernalia, but at least the purse strings won’t be lighter with the free children’s ski and boot rental (available when parents pre-book their own) and they can also enjoy free lift passes (age restrictions apply) to happily whizz up and down.

After a day on the slopes you can head back to a comfortably furnished chalet or chalet hotel where you can all snuggle in for the evening. The kid friendliness continues inside as well as out on the slopes and you can expect to find kids’ TV snugs for that evening of blockbuster entertainment and some chalets even have cinemas and saunas. In addition, the Esprit Ski Baby Listening service and evening Cocoa Club/Cocoa Club Plus mean that parents can enjoy their sit-down meal with other grown-ups without having to worry about childcare.

A crèche for children aged 17 weeks and over means, if you want to, you can hit the slopes all day, every day and in the evenings a baby-listening and child-patrol service is completely free on the staff’s day off (not available in smaller chalets where you’re close to the rooms anyway) so you can let your hair down and relax.
