Austria Wins Winter

We're going skiing in the Austrian Alps, arguably the best place in Europe for family skiing.

Austria is less expensive than many other countries, the ski schools are excellent, and many resorts have been built specifically with families in mind. If you’re thinking about booking a ski trip this season, or maybe just dreaming of some winter fun, this episode is for you.

Behind The Page

Award-winning ski writer Mike MacEacheran takes his family skiing to Austria just about every year. He fills us in on what makes it so special, from Kinder Hotels and kid-spas to his favourite resorts and more.

Meet the Expert

Austrian ski instructor Alice Reeves gives us the lowdown on ski school and shares her top tips for teaching your little ones. Book Alice for your next trip at Ski School Alpendorf – just ask for her by name!

20 Questions

We play a version of the iconic family car game with James Cove, the founder of Planet Ski. He tells us his favourite Austrian resorts for little kids, big kids, the best views, the best après ski, and more.

Don’t Take Our Word For it

Cute alert! Elise, aged 11, tells us what she loves most about ski holidays, from candy bribes and hot chocolates to nailing her first expert runs.

Bedtime Story

Host Aaron Millar reads you a bedtime story from one of our favourite Family Traveller articles. Written by Nicola Venning, it describes a recent trip to Sankt Lambrecht with her family, and it’s guaranteed to send you into blissful winter dreams!

Brought to you by Family Traveller, the global voice of authority on family travel, each episode offers in-depth expert advice and all the know-how family travellers like you need to make the most of your time away.
