Last year our younger son started skiing—and seeing his older brother cruising down the runs, it hopefully won’t take long before my family can hit the slopes together, finally!
Before, with toddlers, tag-teaming is the name of the game. Which means that one parent is taking turns skiing on his own while the other one is trying to teach the toddler to ski. This can be an equitable way to divide the day. Both parents get some time with their child and both get some time on snow. The downside: You never get to ski together. Well, skiing with kids opens up a whole new world for parents anyway. Once the little ones know how to ski—guess what? As much as they like to ski, they won’t like it longer than three hours. They are tired and want to do other stuff, like getting out of their ski boots and play.
(By the way, winter or summer, ski runs or hiking trails, snow or grass – the problem is the same :-) )
Inspired Parents, Tired Kids – So What?
The area around mighty Wilder Kaiser Range has been offering a new approach to that problem since last winter: Their latest attraction is a childcare center that provides programs for children aged 12 months and older in a unique and nurturing environment. The Kinderkornkammer Söll, abbreviated to KiKo Söll, is located in a former granary that has been restored with much love for the detail and boasts a rustic interior with natural wood. This is a fun, stimulating environment that will keep the youngest members of your family entertained with a rich variety of indoor and outdoor play.
They have their own private snow play hill and herb garden, they have play vehicles and sleds, they have an adventure playground, snow shovels and so much more: after a day of fun, sledging and ski tasters, the kids will be begging to go back tomorrow. Indoors are spacious rooms with climbing structures and comfy chill-out corners and hands-on learning and playing your child will love. The professionally trained staff provides quality care for your youngster so you can enjoy a day on the mountain. The daily changing program includes snow play, arts & crafts, indoor and outdoor playtime.
What’s best: KiKo makes ski holidays fun for the whole family with childcare services to suit your needs—by the hour, half day or full day. So that Mom and Dad can hit the slopes knowing their kids children are comfortable and having a blast.
Many ski resorts throughout Tirol operate professional daycare facilities that offer parents peace of mind during their day on the slopes—to learn more please visit www.tyrol.com.
