All Inclusive Ski Holidays

The cool breeze is slowly sweeping in…might be so early to say but in a few more weeks, we will definitely have snow. What my kids would love but what I wouldn’t really want to go through…if winter is not so picturesque and if it’s not a lovely time to capture them kids having fun, I would just escape to the tropics and enjoy the beach under a parasol, sipping piña colada with a Murakami book in one hand.

Those are my thoughts but reality is far from it. I will have to go through the cold :/ but perhaps a few weeks of it would be bearable  when spent  in any exclusive luxury skiing holidays in the Alps or better; Japan! That’s having accommodation, lift passes, meals, transfers and many other activities paid in one go.

While I do enjoy skiing and snowboarding occasionally as it keeps me fit, my mind has been fixed to believe that I am born in the tropics and I will enjoy it there more than being clothed in layers, fingers almost always numb. :/ Thus, when hubby tries to convince me to a ski holiday, he has to cite the other amenities that a particular resort offers. I’m talking spas, whirlpool, thermal and Turkish baths, sauna, massage and everything that will make one relax (food included please). It is after all a break from the usual routine.

Thus, an all inclusive ski holiday is a convenient way to spend winter vacations off. The range of different activities start from kids aged 4 or below to teenagers and to adults. This is really convenient for parents who would want to enjoy their time together knowing that their kids are equally having fun and are in good hands.

There are such websites offering a list of resorts to choose from. Club Med for one, which started the industry in 1950,  features a variety of resorts in France, Italy, Switzerland, the US and a number more countries.

These resorts are becoming more and more in tune with the needs of non-skiers. Aside from the amenities mentioned above, those with less nerves for adventure can also enjoy dog-sledding, snowshoeing and of course, ice skating. It is always fun to play in the snow but if you’re like me who sometimes can’t put her first foot forward to ski, these less strenuous activities can make  you say that “hey, I did have my fun too!”

A spa treatment will work wonders, so would a thermal bath and a sauna. It’s winter, you don’t sweat much, these regimen will help maintain your healthy skin and overall well-being. Soaking in a hot spring is also a good way to go. It will undoubtedly rejuvenate not only the body but the mind as well. Just, don’t overdo it, you know very well that soaking in for long hours will relax you too much, either you wouldn’t be able to go back to your hotel or cabin or if you do you just stay there the whole time not being able to move a muscle. ^_^

  1. what a wonderful holiday, ooh, i dream of seeing the beauty of snows and skiing, wow, that’s something worth trying.

  2. One of my wishes is to have a short vacation in a ski resort. I would love to see the mountain blanketed with thick snow. I am pretty sure it will be beautiful! I like your photos and your kids were having a blast!

  3. Beautiful photographs as always. I was just singing White Christmas earlier today because it was so cold, sadly no snow for us here, just rain. I love the thermal pool, makes me want to go back to the spa.

  4. Beautiful trip and beautiful photos! How fun! I have always wanted to go on a winter vacation somewhere and just enjoy the weather and the snow and maybe learn to ski. 🙂 But that never happens and hoping someday it will. 🙂 Beautiful shots!

  5. One reason i always look forward to the winter is the snow i love how they blanketed everything! Sadly though i can’t see snow this year we’re moving to Florida!

  6. How I wish I can experience the snow too. That’s my childhood dream. I hope someday, somehow it will come true.
