A Guide to the Ultimate Ski Trip


Trip Insurance for Ski tripsSo you want to plan a ski trip? Whether you're an advanced skier or just starting out, a ski vacation can be a wonderful way to relax, have fun, and spend hard-earned time off with family and friends. Getting all the details right might seem overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. Follow this guide to plan a hassle-free trip.

Choose Locations Wisely:

Finding the best place to go can depend on a lot of things: your travel companions, level of experience, time of year, and how far you want to travel. If you're traveling with kids or more inexperienced skiers, you'll want to choose a resort that offers quality lessons and plenty of runs for beginners. It's also smart to research how crowded the resort might be, how easy it is to get around and to ski areas; and other amenities and activities offered (in case the kids get tired or the weather doesn't comply).

Are you on a limited budget? Do you want an all-inclusive package? Or do you just want to be sure to find the best skiing and activities for a family of four? No matter what your priorities, sites like these do the heavy lifting for you, and also offer discounts, guides and plenty of information to help your trip go smoothly.

Ways to Save:

Ski trips can be notoriously expensive. But that doesn't mean a ski vacation is off limits if you're on a budget. Steer clear of ultra-popular resorts and ski areas, and look for smaller, family friendly gems. Book early and fly mid-week to save on travel. If you're taking a longer trip, consider a vacation rental instead of a hotel: you can save on both lodging and meals, by cooking at the house and making your own lunches. Check sites like Liftopia to find deep discounts on lift tickets.

What to Bring:

Going on a ski trip isn't like visiting grandma's house. You'll need to be ready for a variety of weather conditions, have all the right equipment and also remember to pack what you need for non-skiing activities, like restaurants and swimming. Fortunately, if you're new at it, there are plenty of lists out there that will help you to remember every last detail. Check the resort or travel website to find a checklist that's just right for you.

Ski Trip and Winter Travel Insurance:

There's a lot that needs to go right to make a ski trip a success: flights and road conditions, the weather, and much more. But sometimes, things happen. A good travel insurance policy will cover you and your loved ones in the case of accident or injury, lost equipment, or if you have to cancel your trip due to illness or weather.

Don't let the challenge of planning keep you from taking an amazing ski vacation. Use these tips and resources and you'll be on your way to one of the best trips ever.
