I need some opinions on my plans for next winter. We're a family of four, with mixed skiing experience. I'm the dad, I have a lot of experience and I'm aching to go next winter. Last winter, I took our five year old daughter to Soelden and had a blast. So our daughter has enough skills and experience to handle any moderate slope. My wife has never had any lessons and has only skied a few times. Our son is now three and has only stood on skis once last winter.
Am I crazy taking this family to an alp resort like Serfaus next winter? The reason I chose Serfaus is that it seems to be very family-friendly and has a lot of activities for children. I realize that mom and the boy need some lessons before, during and after. But am I just crazy or should I go for it?
The thing I realized last winter is that I'm in my mid-thirties and for the rest of my life I don't ever want to spend a winter without a week or two in an alpine resort. So unless I take the whole family, it's going to be a week of quality dad&daughter-time, but I'd prefer to take the entire family. Also, I'm lobbying for my mother to come, as well as my sister with her son.
Language is also an issue in Serfaus, since my kids don't speak German or English, but that's another issue.
