Continue reading to find out why VIP SKI’s luxury accommodation in Austria is the best place to take advantage of mid-season skiing and how skiers can save money during February half term in a selection of VIP SKI’s other resorts.
Family-friendly half term breaks in Austria
February half term is an excellent opportunity for children to let off some steam on an active family adventure in the mountains, and for parents to have that well-needed break. To help guests have an even more enjoyable, stress-free holiday, VIP SKI can organise ski lessons and ski hire for the whole family before they travel and show guests the very best of the resort while they’re there. Parents can head off and explore the extent of the ski area, safe in the knowledge that their children are happily learning to ski or being looked after by one of VIP SKI’s nannies.
What’s more, children staying at VIP SKI’s Hotel Montjola in St Anton, will have plenty of activities to keep them entertained off the slopes after a day of skiing. In addition to a wide range of sports available at the sports centre, which has three swimming pools including a specially designed children’s pool, children can go ice skating, bowling, climbing and tobogganing on a 4.3km natural run and no doubt go to bed feeling refreshed.
