Family ski-ing holiday check list

Sponsored post

We LOVE ski-ing on KiddyCharts. And we go on a family ski-ing holiday Every. Single. Year. So what better way to share with you all our experiences than with a family ski-ing holiday check list?

Family ski-ing holiday check list.

We think we have pretty much thought of everything, but you can take a look here – and then print out the list to tick everything off one by one. That means that when you have your chosen family ski resort; you KNOW you will be prepared!

If there is anything that YOU think we should have included in our family ski-ing holiday check list, but we haven’t, do let us know and we will do our best to pop it in as soon as we can. If you are driving to a ski-ing holiday over in France, Mum in the Madhouse has an excellent checklist for you before you travel too.

So – here goes….

Go on now – what on EARTH have we forgotten?!?!

Family ski-ing holiday check list

Ski-ing is something that I don’t personally do, but my kids and other half are massive fans. Therefore, if I have missed anything off, do please let me know. It’s probably because my main concern when we go ski-ing is to make sure I have a good book, and enough money for a few hot chocolates!

In addition to this family ski-ing holiday check list, we do have a few articles that you might like to check out on family ski-ing as well:

We trust you like this, and do come back again soon, won’t you – subscribe as well for more cool ideas on holidays, and printables too. At least one a week!

Thanks for coming!

I've never tried skiing with the family before but that sounds like fun. Maybe we'll plan to go skiing someday when we have free time.

An awesome list to have when prepping for the ski trip. I think lists like this one are a powerful tool to be at peace and enjoy the vacations and trips more.
