One of the first things to figure out when you, or your family, get the itch to try skiing is where to go. If you plan to ski in Switzerland, you are in luck because there are plenty of ski resorts to choose from! Every ski resort usually offers beginner terrain and lesson programs to help get you started. More than 10% of terrain at Verbier is rated green for beginners, but there are also many more great options out there. And remember, bigger does not always mean better; smaller resorts like our Gems Resorts often feature no crowds, cheaper pricing and a family-friendly feel.
First of all, travel off-season. Check with the local tourism office to find out when their off-season starts when flying, either plan well in advance (ideally, 10 months to a year ahead) or at the last minute (two weeks or less before you leave) – these will give you the cheapest pricing. Try to be flexible- you can save on fares by travelling mid-week, or choosing sunny Varadero, Cuba, over sunny Cancun, Mexico. Save your health – check with your credit card company for existing travel or car insurance.
It can be challenging to stay healthy while traveling for business. You’re likely adjusting to a new time zone, managing a hectic schedule and eating several meals out.
