If you´re thinking in a family snow trip, we shall recommend four ski resorts absolutely equipped and ready to welcome your children.
Like adults, children enjoy with the same excitement in the snow, so a great weekend plan could be a trip to the mountains to enjoy the white powder. Nowadays ski resorts are thinking much more about it and includes the best services for all the family. Children have a lot of things to do, and not only to play snow wars: nurseries, funny activities, ski classes and all kind of entertainments.
On this post we recommend a four ski resort selection, but practically all of the Spanish ones are great places for kid’s first contact with snow and their first experience in this exciting world.
FORMIGAL (ARAGONESE PYRENEES):
This resort located in the Aragonese Pyrenees offers a wide range of services with the youngest members of the family in mind. Formigal provides a snow garden, where kids become familiar with the snow and will enjoy with funny games, handicrafts and many adventures… Placed in another Formigal´s valley, we find Portalet Park, a fantastic location with wonderful landscapes near French border. Here, children and teens have great entertainments: tubbing, mushing, snow bike and ice karting!! And as a finishing touch to all these snow adventures it´s possible to visit an igloo, an Indian village and make an exciting and full of adrenalin sled´s downhill, tobogganing.
SIERRA NEVADA (PENIBETIC RANGE)
Sierra Nevada counts on a themed area for families: El Mar (set with marine decorations), El Bosque (hidden animals and igloos) and the Kidspark (freestyle first steps). In this adapted snowboard for kids they can learn the jumps and rails technique in company of their parents and supervised by professionals without any risk. The ski resort also provides a lot of activities like an activities park, snowmobile for kids or slides. Of course, there´s also nursery and babysitter services.
BAQUEIRA BERET (CATALAN PYRENEES)
Baqueira Beret has nothing less than 4 playgrounds, a day care service and a snow garden. This great ski resort also offers many activities adapted to all ages: ski classes for all levels, snowmobile rent, heli-skiing and horse riding and mushing. In short, numerous activities for all the family in an unrivalled setting.
Finally we find Grandvalira: a large ski resort very appropriated for families with children. Many services are offered as nurseries and snow gardens. It also counts with 3 mountain skiing circuits: MON (T) MAGIC CIRCUIT (experience for parents and kids in the European longest baby-thematic slope), IMAGINARIUM CIRCUIT (based in the famous toy brand, Imaginarium), BABABOOM CIRCUS CIRCUIT (circus magic in the snow). In addition other activities are available, as mushing, snowmobiles, snow rackets, Nordic skiing and Tubbing (slide in a funny tube). And absolutely, you can´t miss the Igloo Hotel.
We hope this information has been interesting and helpful to prepare your snow trip to Spain and we could meet in the slopes. Don´t forget SKIBACK can be used by adults as well as children. In this way, the smallest of the family can be independent and carry their own ski equipment on a safe and comfortable way.
See you next week!!
