It’s the prime time of year to take a winter sports trip. Whether you prefer skiing or snowboarding, there is no better time than late winter, or early spring, to get your winter sports vacation booked.
But what if you don’t enjoy winter sports, or can’t participate in winter sporting activities due to a disability, illness or health limitation?
Then this one is for you. We wrote this blog to help you get through a skiing holiday.
You can still enjoy a skiing holiday with your friends and family without the actual skiing. Here’s how…
Wherever your ski destination holiday takes you, it’s likely you’ll find yourself surrounded by breath-taking scenery.
You could find yourself in the French Alps or the Spanish Sierra Nevada, or perhaps your ski trip will take you to Switzerland, or Austria.
If so, then we guarantee you’ll enjoy some delicious, crisp white scenery.
The alpine forests, the blinding winter sun and a backdrop of charming wooden chalets make for some incredible views. Don’t forget your camera either – spend your days capturing winter in its purest form.
Don’t consider yourself a ‘foodie’? Don’t worry.
Enjoy the food and drink options available to you in your resort of choice.
Whether it’s fine French cheese or Austrian wine, immerse yourself in the cultural culinary delights and delicacies that are available at your ski resort.
Treat yourself to a taster menu, or book a late lunch for you and your family. Check out the most unique restaurants in the local town and try something new.
Experience the country and culture you are in through taste. Sounds like the perfect way to get through a skiing holiday to us.
Speaking of culture, why not explore the area you’re visiting a little? Trial the local music scene, or investigate the local history in your chosen winter sport resort.
Hit the tourist information centre whilst your friends hit the tracks and spend a day or two getting to know the place.
Consider exploring some other close by towns, and really immerse yourself in the country you’re in.
You could even purchase a travel guide book, to find out everything that’s available to you as a tourist.
Often ski and chalet resorts have a whole range of exciting facilities for tourists to make use of.
Some have such lavish features as a cinema – where you can spend an evening watching a new release.
Others allow you to spend a day relaxing by their swimming pool.
Before booking your holiday, select your ski destination based on the facilities on offer – so you can potentially spend your days at the spa and sauna, whilst your family and friends enjoy the slopes.
Make the most of the relaxation before joining back up with your friends at a local bar for a mulled drink.
Why spend a day in the cold, when you can spend a day in the warmth of a sauna? Now that does sound like the best way to get through a skiing holiday if you don’t like winter sports.
Many people can’t participate or don’t want to participate in a winter sporting activities for many different reasons, that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a skiing holiday with your friends and family.
