Austria is the après ski king - try Solden, Ischgl, St Anton and Mayrhofen or Saalbach . In France - Val d'Isere, Morzine or Meribel, whilst Pas de la Casa, Sauze d'Oulx and Whistler can guarantee that you'll never see the first gondola. Prices vary: Austria and Andorra offer good value, France less so.

La Tania is one of the best family ski holiday resorts in the Alps. The kids ski area is at the centre of the resort and the runs above La Tania are gentle and tree-lined. Serfaus in Austria offers great kids programs and a family friendly resort . The Stubai Glacier also has an excellent kids ski program.
