NEW BLOG POST: Learn for real Outside on Outdoor Classroom Day

It's #OutdoorClassroomDay on 18 May, a day when teachers around the world are encouraged to take kids outside to learn in a celebration of the value of outdoor play and real world learning.

We're great advocates of getting outside to have fun and learn so for our contribution to support Outdoor Classroom Day we took ourselves outside for a day of PE, Geography and Physics. Sound boring? Well, not the way we did it.

Read on for ideas on how to encourage your kids and kids teachers to get out and learn, even if it's just for an hour.

NEW VIDEO: Skiddaw Sausage Microadventure

If you like sunsets, sunrises, mountains, camping and sausages you will love this idea for a microadventure on Skiddaw. Our latest video shares a little of our experience last weekend wild camping in the Northern Lake District, taking nothing but pictures and video and leaving nothing but the smell of sausages.

NEW POST: A Ski Resort that Love Families

How refreshing to find a ski resort that sets out to put families first.
We recently visited the French Mountains​ for a winter sports break in Valmorel​, experiencing first-hand its family offer. We discovered a charming traditional style, ski in, ski-out resort working hard to make a winter sports holiday easy for toddlers, teens and everything in between. Check out our report on Valmorel, a resort that loves families and find out why we think families will love it back.

We managed in La Rosière. Check out our latest post for more on snow, ice, action and adventure in this family friendly French ski and winter sports resort.

NEW VIDEO: Low Snow Day

When it comes to skiing and snow there's always a chance of being caught out with little or no snow. So, what do you do?

Early in the season in the Alps we found ourselves with a low snow day, with skiing more limited than usual. But still found plenty of other things to do to enjoy the mountain ambience. Here's our fun take on what to do when if you find yourself in ski resort and a bit low on snow.

NEW VIDEO: When Kids teach Adults to Ski*

We knew when we sent the kids to ski school in Valmorel on Christmas morning there might be payback! The ESF instructors were great and did a great job building skills and confidence. So great that Hannah wanted to share her tips with us in the afternoon in her own version of ski school. I guess I still have a thing or two to learn! Do you use ski schools when you ski as a family or prefer to teach one another?
