The question of why do people go skiing? Is a perfectly valid question. If you were to describe the process to someone that has never heard of skiing, it would sound pretty bizarre. Of course, there is more to it than that, but in a nutshell it is amazingly great fun! In this post I am going to go through all the reasons why we travel the world to slide around on snow.

If you are a skier or snowboarder, you will understand what I am getting at. But, if you have never tried it, I hope that I will inspire you to give it a try, it is potentially life changing. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you will experience the thrill of sliding on snow. Beginners will love the feeling of achievement when they have managed to make their first turns and complete a whole run successfully. The thrill you experience while skiing or snowboarding is super addictive.

For us, the ultimate day on the mountain is on a blue sky powder day. Over night, the slopes are groomed to perfection with a lovely corduroy effect. If you get up the mountain on the first lift of the day, you can experience this before everyone else. Corduroy is perfect for fast skiing and carving as there are no bumps to worry about. This makes it super easy to practice your turns or just have lots of fun. But, snowcapped mountains are not just for sliding down. They have lots of other things that attract us to them, one of which is the spectacular views. In our book, there is no better sight than the towering peaks of the alps.

The great thing about a sking holiday, is the you get to experience these views without having to be a mountaineer. Just sit on a chairlift and and take it all in as you are whisked to the top of the mountain. Even if you are just on a week long skiing holiday, you are going to get a taste of a fantastic lifestyle. By escaping to the mountains, you will have a unique experience that will let you forget the busy and stressful life at home.

Waking up in the morning to alpine views, is a great way to start your day. Once you have had a slap up breakfast to fuel yourself up for the day, you can head to the slopes. The mountains have plenty of restaurants to enjoy a snack, a full meal or a few drinks while you rest your legs, that can be accessed at any time during the day. This means you can ski as much or as little as you like. Skiing and snowboarding are very sociable sports. This comes from enjoying mountain time with your friends and family. But, if you stay in a shared catered chalet, you get to meet all sorts of new people.

These can lead to hilarious nights around the table and lifelong friendships. You can of course have a chalet or apartment to yourself. This makes skiing holidays great for groups and gives old friends time to catch up. Chalet holidays are also great for large families. We have lots of groups made up of kids, parents and grand parents. These multi-generational skiing holidays are getting more popular each winter. Check out our guide to learn all about these great family experiences. Many bars put on live entertainment at this time and have happy hour prices.

These are always great fun after a day on the mountain. You can experience local food in pretty much any restaurant in a ski resort. For example, in French resorts such as Morzine, you can find local specialities such as Fondue or Tartiflette. There are other options for feeding yourself during a skiing holiday. If you stay in a catered chalet , you will have chalet hosts that will cook breakfast and dinner for you. This is really popular with large groups, as it is a great experience and makes life a lot easier. Alternatively, you can go self catered. By doing this you can obviously cook your own meals, but you can also book a private chef or have food delivered to your door.

After all that food and drink, you may want to burn it off. Skiing is pretty good exercise, especially if you are fairly new to it. Skiing is a great mix of endurance and resistance training. It also has a positive effect on your heart and circulation, while being great for your legs and glutes. Skiing and snowboarding are also great for interval training.

This is because you have short bursts of intense exercise, followed by a rest on a chairlift. This improves your fitness level and is a great fat burner, which is a relief after scoffing all that cheese the night before!! Sounds like my kind of exercise! As skiing and snowboarding are quite physical sports, it is a good idea to do a bit of training before your holiday.

Check out our guide to getting fit for your holiday. You can pick up new skills each time you go skiing. Many of our guests set themselves goals for their holiday, whether they want to finally perfect their parallel turns, tick off all the black runs or complete the full circuit of the Portes du Soleil.

To make sure you get the most out of your first skiing holiday, we recommend that you choose a resort that is good for beginners and get some lessons. There are lessons available for people that have never even put skis on before, to lessons for people that want to go on backcountry adventures. There is always something to learn, and doing so will increase your enjoyment even more. There are a few misconceptions about skiing holidays that put people off from giving it a go. So, now I am going to bust those myths and give you the truth. Skiing is not reserved for the rich and famous anymore.

There are less expensive resorts to go to and there are cheaper ways of having the full experience. For example, a catered chalet holiday may be cheaper for large families than a self catered one, as you are not going to restaurants every night. Flights are much cheaper if you book them well in advance and if you are travelling to France from the UK, you can get some good deals on the Channel Tunnel. Check out our guide to travelling to the alps here. Not at all! Some ski schools actually have childcare services.

There are also some great nannies and babysitters available in ski resorts to make sure your kids are occupied and taken care of. Additionally, ski chalets are big enough to accommodate large families and ideal for when you bring the grandparents. Kind of. You would be surprised at how nice the weather is in the mountains. We are based in Morzine and have to make sure we keep topping up the suntan lotion to prevent the dreaded goggle tan. You can have a very different type of skiing holiday depending on what time of the winter you go.

For example, you can have cold days with great snow, early in the season. Check out our guide to help you decide when to go on a skiing holiday. It is going to happen, but this is part of learning something new. With proper instruction, you will reduce the amount of time you are rolling around in the snow. Definitely not! We are talking widescreen TVs, comfortable beds, chic de and luxury style. Have a look at these to see what I mean. Also check out this guy skiing on his th birthday. From soaring high above them from a paraglider to taking a leisurely snow shoe trek through the forests, looking for wildlife, the mountains have something for everyone.

Although most alpine foods are based around cheese and meat, there are some great options for food. There are more restaurants basing their food around alternative cuisine, as people are being more aware of dietary requirements. In Morzine alone, we have a great asian influenced restaurant, a micro brewery with vegan options and a curry house.
