When it comes to family ski holidays in Europe, there comes a time when the slopes, especially in France, can be crammed with kids on half-term holidays. The lift queues are long, patience is frayed and pistes can soon become like motorways. And with kids in tow, there’s little chance you’ll get up there early enough to lay some fresh early-morning tracks when the slopes are quieter. It’s little surprise that so many parents pack up their skis when they have children. But before you do, there’s a handful of resorts worth considering: they all have short or reasonable transfer times from main airports, are beginner-friendly and offer a welcome break for those who thought skiing in half-term was madness. And for those moments when you’ve all had enough: most offer plenty to do off-slope too.
