New family guide to the mountain
Wednesday June 17, 2015 - Email this article to a friend

The tour operator, Crystal, has launched a digital guide for family skiing. So, what is in it?

Anyone who has taken a family ski holiday will know that it can be somewhat stressful and that planning and preparation are the key.

Crystal has come up with more information and support prior to booking a ski holiday.

There is information on childcare, ski school, meal times, alternative activities in the resort, which resort to chose, when to go and what to pack.

"Initiated by internal and external research, as well as feedback from mums and dads that families need the most information and support prior to booking a ski holiday, Crystal produced this online guide to reassure families with any concerns or hesitations about ski holidays," said a statement from Crystal.

See here for the guide - Family Guide to the Mountain.

Crystal has a commitment to providing its information in a digital format as we reported in this earlier PlanetSKI story.
