How to have the perfect family ski holiday in Oetztal, Austria.

Perhaps you want some inspiration for your next family ski holiday, or maybe you’re planning your first ski holiday as a family and are feeling overwhelmed with the endless number of places to choose from. No matter why you stumbled upon this article, let me narrow down your choices and melt away your worries – simply pack your bags and go to Oetztal, Austria.
The Oetztal Valley is a stunning snow-covered valley which sits in Austria’s popular ski destination, the Tyrol region. It offers everything you’d ever want for the perfect ski holiday with guaranteed snow, endless family-friendly activities and unforgettable Tirolean charm and hospitality. To ensure your holiday goes as it should, I’ve put together some tips on how to have the perfect family ski holiday in this beautiful Austrian valley.

Choose a home away from home.
Find the perfect balance between the luxury of a hotel and the comfort of your own home at the All Suite Resort Ötztal ski apartments. Designed with an aparthotel concept in mind, these apartments offer travellers the privacy and flexibility of their own home away from home but with extra hotel amenities, such as restaurant and bar/lounge, which anyone can pay extra for, if required.
When you have small children, this article on Mumsnetrecommends staying at self-catering apartments or chalets as these will allow you to do everything at your own pace. Plus, in self-catering apartments, you can more easily cater to your children’s requirements and needs.

Do some child-friendly activities.
According to Chelsea Mamma, the Hochoetz area is one of the most family-friendly ski areas in the valley, where “children can spend their days at the fun park under the eyes of trained instructors.”
If your kids have had enough of skiing or snowboarding, why not try out other winter activities? In Oetztal, you can experience many other activities for the whole family to enjoy, such as sledging, horse riding, ice skating, snowshoe hiking and more! If everything else fails, maybe it’s time to make a snowman or for a snowball fight!

Relax after a long day.
After a long day, everyone will need a boost. Head over to the spa centre (included with your stay at the All Suite Resort apartments) and give re-charge at the various saunas, heated pools, relaxation rooms and bathing pond.
Organisation is key.
Organisation is vital during a ski holiday. It’s important to get your little ones dressed, fed and ready for their ski lessons, so then you can have some time for yourself too. 
Hint: get most things done the night before, including snacks in their ski jackets pockets and a slip of paper with your contact information.
