While ski holidays are not for everyone, they can offer a holiday experience like no other. Imagine relaxing by a roaring log-fire in ski chalets after a long day on the slopes, or enjoying the rush and thrill of effortlessly gliding down a snow-capped mountain.
Skiing is not the only type of holiday activity available during the winter months; there are many ways you can have fun in the snow; such as tobogganing, snowboarding, figure skating and sledging.
A number of ski holiday deals could include a range of winter sport activities. Snowboarding is a thrilling and exciting winter sport that acts as a great alterative to skiing. Using specially designed boots and a board attached to the rider's feet, the sport takes elements from skateboarding and skiing. Snowboarding is a sport for all ages and levels and is ideal for those who might have tried either skiing or skateboarding before, or even those who wish to try something completely new.
Tobogganing is another family-friendly winter sport which is suitable for the whole family. Both grown-ups and children can enjoy the sport, making it a fun-filled family adventure for all. Specially designed tobogganing can be done in a number of places. Another option is tubing, where you can safely whizz down specially-made courses found in family-friendly resorts.
One of the most leisurely, as well as romantic, ways to take the weight off aching legs is to snuggle under a warm fur blanket and be pulled along in your own sleigh by horses, or in some cases dogs.
Sit back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the soft jingle of sleigh-bells on the ride of a lifetime. It can be a much-needed post-Holiday recuperation!
