Here is MyLocalExchange's top tips to being piste ready...
It's soooo easy. Sort out your & your kids' ski stuff now and sell it on MyLocalExchange. Just contact us if you need a helping hand! See what's selling and save some money. Plus we have some great local shops providing equipment, clothing and specialist services for skiers - just check them out here.
We are incredibly lucky to have the SnoZone at the Xscape, Milton Keynes on our doorstep. Totally recommend getting your little darlings competent on skis before hitting the slopes for your first family trip. This way you won't have to spend YOUR time hanging out on the nursery slopes. As long as you get them to the level of taking a button lift before you go, then there will be no stopping them. SnoZone runs SnoAcademy for group lessons or go for a one on one. They won't let them loose on the main slope with you until they have mastered the button - so book lessons early to avoid disappointment. PS if you are feeling rather peckish after all that snow, check out Five Guys - a great burger joint at the Xscape.
Check out the chalets on MyLocalExchange - always good for mates rates! And, if you like leaving it until the last minute to see how the snow conditions are shaping up - then why not try Ski Solutions or Alpine Answers. They have access to all the holidays still available and are pretty knowledgeable on their chosen region.
