Tag: Swiss Winter 101

We love that Switzerland makes it so easy to take public transportation to go skiing. But if you are used to driving, you might be nervous like us about trying it. So here are some tips to make it easier, especially with kids.
Outside time is important for both your physical and mental health. But if you or your kids despise the cold and aren’t doing winter sports, it can be difficult to get outside in winter. Don’t despair! We have lots of ideas on how to help your family #GetOutside more this winter even if you aren’t skiing.
If you or your family don’t ski, or don’t ski well, don’t worry. Every Swiss resort, large and small, offers ski lessons for all ages, many with English-speaking instructors. Here is a explanation of how ski school works in Switzerland and tips for success based on our experience teaching two kids to ski and snowboard for the past eight years.
