Skiing is a great way to experience the mountains in relatively comfortable surroundings. Sun, fresh air and time spent with friends and family provide the perfect conditions for a special experience which strengthens bonds – be it with parents, grandparents or brothers and sisters. These days children are often stressed out by daily life and school, so a skiing holiday is the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and experience something totally new out and about in the mountains. The combination of being outside and learning a new skill is great for building confidence, especially as children notice at the end of the week how their skiing skills have improved in the space of just a few days. And the memories of which “races” they won, which jumps they landed and which difficult situations they were able to overcome will ensure that this confidence stays with them long after the holiday has finished.
