But are Pierre & Vacances’ family ski packages really the best for 2017/2018? Take a look and decide for yourself.

Free Kid’s Ski Packages with every six-day Adult Ski Package

Every keen skier has considered teaching their kids to ski, and hopefully dismissed the idea just as quickly. It might seem like a great way to save in the short term, but unstitching the bad habits you inevitably pass on, could cost you a fortune in the future.

Leave lessons to the professionals is Pierre & Vacances’ advice, and they’re making it very easy for you to follow this winter.
