Winter in Samoens – a perfect family ski holiday destination

Family Ski Holidays in Samoens -
The ideal destination

If you are looking for a family ski holiday with something for everybody, Samoëns is a wonderful destination. Yes, we may be slightly biased as we live here, but the family-friendliness was a big part of its attraction to us (the youngest member of the Absolute Alpine team – Barney – is not quite 15 months old yet).

If you are looking for a more reasons to help with resort selection for your family skiing trip, we have outlined a few of the key points below to help with your decision.

Winter has definitely arrived in Samoens!

Winter Has Arrived!

Winter is Here – Book Your Samoens Accommodation Now!

It’s been an incredible start to this winter with snow falling what seems like incessantly over the last week. The village looks incredible in its white, winter outfit and there’s a huge amount of excitement brewing regarding the snow on the mountain. There’s been so much that the lifts are opening early for a weekend in Samoens this coming weekend.

We can’t wait!

Ski Samoens – Winter is coming!

Ski Samoens – winter is coming to the Samoens valley

With snow arriving in the village this week, the Samoëns ski season is definitely well on its way… We took the opportunity to enjoy some early winter fun although there’s still time to relish some more of the alpine autumn before winter arrives fully.

Winter in the morning…

Family walking in Samoens – autumn fun!

Family walking in Samoens

So we’ve seen snow on the higher summits for a few weeks now (and even down to 1,200-1,300m on a couple of occasions – skiing in Samoens should be good this winter!) although the walking season definitely isn’t over yet. With such breathtaking autumn colours, it’s an incredible time of year to enjoy some alpine outings.

Enjoy autumn in the Alps!

On the way to refuge de Sales

This weekend, we took to the hills with some friends for a family day out. Read on to find out more…

Even the panoramic photo software doesn't do the scenery justice...

Ski Samoens with a few handy phone apps

Ski Samoens with the help of some handy apps

Winter is definitely on its way! The Samoëns valley is full of the spectacular colours of autumn and we’ve seen snow on the surrounding mountains a few times already (in fact, as I write this, there’s still snow cover to about 1,600m).

Holidays are about escaping, relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family. Turning on the ‘out of office’ and letting work phone calls go through to your answer machine needn’t mean that you can’t make use of your phone on your ski holiday though.

We’ve got a few suggestions for smart phone apps that will add a bit of fun to an already exciting Samoens ski holiday…

Walking Holidays in the French Alps – Photo(s) of the Week

Walking holidays in the French Alps – Photo of the week

This week saw our walking guests take to the hills for a couple of multi-day treks. With access to more remote areas and even more wildlife, it’s been another difficult week for choosing a single photo of the week.

If you would like the chance to capture such beautiful images, why not take a look at our French Alps walking holidays. Our calendar for 2013 will be announced shortly!

The Queen of the Alps

Just when you thought that you’d seen all the photos of the Cascade de Rouget or “Queen of the Alps”, Bruno pulls this one out of the bag…

Walking Holidays – Our Photos of the Week

French Alps Walking Holidays – Photo of the Week

It’s been a fantastic week since our last blog post as we headed up on a three-day mountain trek above Samoëns. Staying in mountain huts (don’t worry – they’ve got toilets and hearty mountain food ready for our arrival!) gives us the chance to get to some even more remote and beautiful spots.

This is one of the old buildings from the original refuge. We were greeted with wonderful smiles and some hearty and delicious mountain food. I personally enjoyed a mouthwatering fondue!

Walking Holidays – Photo of the Week

It’s been a while since our last blog update and a lot has been happening here in Samoëns. Our various walking holidays and family adventure holidays have been a great hit (why not take a look at our latest reviews on Trip Advisor) and we have too many photos again to limit to just one photo of the week…

An impressive close up

This wonderfully detailed photo of a fly was taken by one of our guests who was introduced to the world of close-up photography by our guide Bruno that morning. Julia clearly has a great eye for macro photography!

A stunning close up of a fly...
