If you’re unsure where to visit next February Half Term, don’t worry we have you covered. We’ve listed the best ski resorts that have great facilities for children and have excellent skiing. At this point of the season, there’s usually a great base of snow and still plenty of snow forecasted. Skiing during this period tends to be one of the most popular ski weeks for British families. This is because it is during the school holidays and the second opportunity to get a ski fix, after Christmas. Children will love the snowy playgrounds that await. From the confidence-boosting slopes, world-class ski instructors, and unique non-ski activities, it will truly be an unforgettable experience.

Being limited to the school holidays means many other families will be travelling to the slopes the same week. But this doesn’t mean you’ll encounter never-ending lift queues and ridiculously crowded slopes. We’ve drawn up a list of the perfect ski destinations for you and your family. Here is our top pick of the best ski resorts for February Half Term.
