First time on the slopes? Happiest with extreme freeriding in the mix? Prioritising ski schools over dreamy downhill? Or want a little of everything, and village charm too?

Whatever says sensational family ski holiday to your particular family, there’s bound to be a perfect European resort. Take a look at these five great all-rounders for starters.

1/5  Arinsal, Andorra: Vallnord ski area

Arinsal is a typical Andorran resort; warm, friendly, and easy going. Also in-keeping with local tradition, it’s great value, and an excellent choice for first-time ski holidays.

A good range of green and blue runs, snow parks, loads of activities, and great freeriding at nearby Arcalis, gives older kids and teens plenty to get excited about. Learner terrain is outstanding, local ski and snowboard schools offer multi-lingual instruction, and Arinsal’s après-ski is nicely unpretentious with lots of lively Basque character in the mix.

Good for families
