Feel-good tips for ski bunnies of all sizes

Skiing can be a genuine pleasure for the whole family

  1. Prepare your body with skiing exercises and physical fitness
    A relaxing massage is a great way to kick off your holiday, and can really make the difference in terms of enjoyment for the adults. It’s important for everyone to warm up the muscles with plenty of physical movement before hitting the slopes.
  2. Eat a little something before skiing
    The nutritious, vitamin-rich breakfasts offered at the Familienhotels are a perfect way to start a great day of skiing off just right.
  3. Kids: take a quick pit stop before kitting yourself out
    A trip to the bathroom beforehand will save you from having to climb in and out of gear later on.
  4. Don’t forget sun cream!
    The sun is very strong in the mountains. Delicate areas of skin thus need appropriate sun protection, which is best applied immediately after brushing your teeth. Reapply throughout the day, even if it’s cloudy!
  5. Warm up those boots for a happy start to the day
    Nothing can spoil a good mood as fast as cold feet. The best method is to warm shoes before going outside. This is especially true for the kids. You can even use a hair dryer to warm up your boots in the blink of an eye.
  6. Keep drinks and snacks close at hand
    Even the time spent riding a lift is ample for a little bit of fortification. The best choices are warm tea, nutrition bars, nuts, chocolate and dried fruit. Is there someone in your family who always has a little snack tucked away? A favorite treat often works wonders, and fatigue just magically vanishes.
  7. Suitable equipment
    In South Tyrol, children are required to wear helmets on the ski slopes – and doing so is also highly recommended for adults. Add some properly fitting ski goggles and a back protector, and the kiddies will look like miniature astronauts: ready for their first mission out onto the fresh snow!
  8. Choose runs wisely
    Choose which slopes you take on responsibly and appropriately for the abilities of all. There are plenty of choices for all levels of difficulty. There is no place for pressuring someone or issuing tests of courage when the technical skills for staying safe are lacking.
  9. Best case scenario: quick change from skiwear into swimwear
    It’s best to take that last run while everyone is still in good spirits. Then there’s energy to spare to enjoy the amenities offered by your Familienhotel, turning a ski day into a dream day ...
So it’s off into the indoor pool or warming sauna at your favorite Familienhotel Südtirol.
