9​ ​Reasons​ ​to​ ​go​ ​on​ ​a​ ​Multi-Generational Winter​ ​Holiday

Image
You might already have your summer holidays mapped out with different trips and activities, but a  winter holiday in Morzine  is something that the whole family can enjoy. From grandparents to grandkids, going away to a new and exciting destination allows the family to spend  quality time  together, without the distractions of day-to-day routine. A multi-generational, or 3G holiday, is where three different generations of the family go on  holiday together . Grandparents, parents and their children (and even aunties, uncles and cousins) spend time together in a holiday location. It gives grandparents the opportunity to spoil the kids with treats and late bedtimes and all the things that mean endless holiday fun, while you might just be able to book in a  dinner for two  without the need for a babysitter! Everyone has quality time together and also the opportunity to do things individually as well – it’s a perfect combination that really works well.   Read on...

Why the Portes Du Soleil keeps solo skiers coming back!

Why the Portes Du Soleil keeps solo skiers coming back! The solo ski experts at The Ski Gathering tell us what is attracting first-timers and veteran solos to Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Gets. Across the board, solo travel has grown enormously in recent years, mirroring a general trend in ‘independent’ and socialising hobbies. Today, people use apps and websites to find flatmates, meet gym buddies, arrange car shares… and plan their solo-travel adventures. This is particularly noticeable with ski holidays, where solo travellers are increasingly making their mark. Some solos prefer to ski alone, enjoying the total freedom of the mountain. But most see it as a social opportunity to meet other skiers or boarders and avoid paying the empty-bed supplement. For the latter group in particular, the Portes du Soleil has become a focal point in the solo travel revolution. Why is that?

Morzine vs. Meribel: Which is the Better Ski Resort?

Image
When it comes to ski resorts, and French ones at that, you’ll be hard pushed to find two more popular destinations with British skiers than  Meribel  and  Morzine . And, if you’ve found your way here, you’re probably finding it hard to choose between the two… Sound familiar? Don’t worry, it happens. Plus, if this is the biggest dilemma you’re currently facing, I’d like to think you’re in a pretty enviable position! Both are gorgeous French resorts with plenty of brilliant après-ski, and respectively large ski areas to explore – Trois Vallées for Meribel, and  Portes du Soleil  for Morzine. So, which one’s right for you?  Sam at More Mountain breaks down the pros and cons of both resorts for you...

Why Morzine France should be your next Ski destination

         Why Morzine France should be your next Ski destination By  melbtravel When asked what my favourite  ski  resorts are around the world,  Morzine  France is always in my top 5. It is a resort that suits all types of groups from family  ski  holidays to a bunch of friends flying in for a weekend. It offers a wide range of activities on and off the slopes and also has a large selection of restaurants and pubs to cater for your needs. Not to mention it is part of one the biggest ski areas in the world,  Portes de Soleil,  with over  650kms  of runs and is only around an hour and a half from  Geneva   airport . Because of this, it is fast becoming incredibly popular with British skiers/snowboarders. Out of the 12 resorts that make up the  Portes  du Soleil   ski  area,   Morzine  is the largest and probably the most convenient in regards to resort hopping. It is one of the reasons why I have been here on several occasions during the  ski  season. It is also the only resort,

Top tips to help you prepare your kids for ski school

In  Nanny news from Vacation Nannies |By  Charlotte Clay It’s almost half term and the pre ski holiday panic has set in. What do the kids need for ski school? Ski school with kids can be stressful. From dressing them to finding them after, the key is making sure you have done your research and the kids are dressed appropriately. Top tips to help you and your kids prepare for ski school. It’s all about layers. Make sure your children are wearing good thermal layers. I would recommend a vest, long sleeve thermal top and thermal trousers all tucked in; so they don’t get chilly and a fleece as a mid layer. Rugby skins make a great thermal layer, or Mountain Warehouse have a good quality and affordable range. Accessorise! All kids have to wear helmets, so rather than a wooly hat I would recommend a long snood or balaclava when it’s cold. Buff have a great range. These can be nicely layered under the helmet and tuck down into their collar, keeping their neck and chin nice and
