27 Jan How to enjoy a ski holiday without skiing!
Can you enjoy a winter ski holiday if you’re a first-time skier, or even if you don’t want to ski at all?
” So, can you have a great Alpine holiday if you haven’t skied before? The answer is a resounding yes. My first experience of the slopes was a lot less daunting and a lot more enjoyable than I’d imagined, and there’s plenty to appeal to those who don’t want to ski at all. I left Courchevel feeling relaxed and refreshed, and I’m proud of myself for trying something new. ” ~ Abi Dare
Also, asked by Julia (aka Humphrey & Grace) in her blogpost – AN ALPINE ESCAPE TO COURCHEVEL
“To ski or not to ski? Although this was not my first time on the Alpine slopes, I am not a skier. Happily, though Courchevel offers plenty of options for those of us who don’t fancy hurtling down a mountain on slippy skis – or for those who simply fancy a day doing something different!” ~ Julia Smith
We agree! If you have booked a chalet holiday as a group often there is at least one person that doesn’t ski. That doesn’t mean they have to just sit in the chalet when everyone else wants to ski. Or there might be others in your group that don’t fancy skiing every day and want to try a new adventure or experience.
