Found: Top Family Ski Resorts Part II

November 28th, 2013

Hello Everyone,

I recently posted Part I of our Top Family Ski Resorts Findings. Scroll down to read Part II, including Western Europe, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Asia.  And, Happy Thanksgiving!

With snow season rapidly approaching I want to help you get a jump start on trip planning. This year I have compiled a list of top ski destinations by region that are family friendly and include great ski packages, amenities, dining and accommodations. Be aware that some of these resorts will take an hour or so from the airport or train so plan ahead. Traveling with children is not easy, but it’s worth the hassle when you see all that you receive when you arrive to any of these awe inspiring destinations. Listed below are the top family ski resorts by world region. Travel safe and Enjoy!

Warm Regards,



North America

Middle East, Africa and Antarctica








These three destinations are not family friendly (unless your kids have already grown up!) and there is a level of high risk. However, for the adventurous adult, the best skiing can be found in Antarctica. Best way to arrive there is to charter a yacht to Antarctica and back for an 11-13 day excursion. Trip will include camping, back country skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking and climbing. Prices range from $4,995 – $27,100. Looks amazing!
