The summer holidays aren't the only great times to go on holiday. With the resurgence of winter holidays such as skiing and snowboarding, more and more families are holidaying when the weather is colder and finding out the great that winter has to offer.

Family Snow Holidays Without Skiing

If skiing isn't your preferred winter activity, there are still plenty of things that you can enjoy in the colder months. The Avoriaz resort in France has a selection of shops, restaurants and even a water park, Aquariaz, that you can access without having to ride the slopes. There are also organised snowball fights and sumo wrestling on site for you to have a go at.

St Moritz is also another great winter location for families who don't like to ski, with an abundance of spectator sports such as cricket on ice, national park tours and train rides on a UNESCO listed train.

Cheap Family Ski Holidays

Les Deux Alpes has fantastic views of Mont Blanc and it is one of the most likely resorts to receive snow during skiing season, with prices starting at £218. The long-established town also caters to adult enjoyment, with a collection of bars and restaurants. For children, there is a selection of activities such as ice skating and horse-riding, as well as beginner ski lessons.
