The ski resorts are a perfect place to spend a good day surrounded by nature and at the same time practice sport whilst having fun. Although it may seem like a place for experts, it is not necessary to have any experience to enjoy many of the activities that are concentrated there. In addition, they will allow you to see first-hand one of the star sports of the winter season such as skiing, or discover newer ones such as snowmobiles or snow tubing.
1. Winter is not to stay at home
When winter comes there are many people who do not go out to enjoy outdoor sports with the excuse of cold, but the reality is very different, because with good winter clothes and as soon as you start exercising, the cold disappears. In addition, there are many sports that due to the weather, are only possible during this season and in the mountain passes. With the arrival of winter these become a sports center where a crowd of people of very different ages and tastes gather to have fun on the white blanket.
2. Activities to everyone's taste
We not only go skiing and snowboarding, because there are activities for the whole family such as the construction of an igloo, snow tubing, mushing or sledding by dogs, traditional sleds or snowshoes. For what we will not admit a "is that I do not like" or "it is very expensive" because we have activities for all styles and budgets.
3. Activities to do with the little ones
The youngest can also participate in the ski adventures because you can start skiing or snowboarding with only 4 years old. Do not be afraid to leave the children with qualified teachers, they will have a great time. If you do not want to ski, you can always play with the sledges or participate in a snowball war. In all stations, you will find entertaining family plans.
4. Enjoy nature
Coming to the ski resorts is a way to test both the environment and yourself. We advise to be aware of our own limits since any mountain sport is characterized by being able to push the limits of our body's capabilities. Choose an activity that you can finish without risks, and above all, enjoy the beautiful images that nature gives us.
5. Duration is not an impediment
There are activities that go from 15 minutes or half an hour, through the half day or full day ski pass. That is why the activity you choose will depend on the depth with which you want to get to know the mountain, depending on this, the duration of the activity will vary.
Planning a getaway to ski resorts?
It is important before planning a snow outfall, whatever the activity, to look at the weather and snow conditions. Since, if we go for the first time or do not have much experience skiing can be harder that it looks like. If you are an expert skier you will have no problem, otherwise the best snows conditions are “snow powder” and “snow spring”.
The best months to go to a ski resort are from January or February to March or April. It is not a fixed date because each year the snows arrive in different months. But it is necessary to plan with a minimum week in advance since it is high season and are usually quite busy.
If you have time to go during the week to the mountains, it is possible that the activity can can have a special discount.
