Child friendly ski areas
Are you planning to book a ski holiday to Austria? Just like you, children also want to have fun during a winter sports holiday. And it's really nice to know that they are in good hands so that you can leave them at their own ski school with complete peace of mind. That's why it's well worth booking a winter sports holiday in a child-friendly ski resort. Fortunately, there are countless opportunities in Austria to spend your winter sports holiday in a family-friendly ski resort. Here's why it's a good idea to choose a small ski resort when you go skiing with your family.

Reasons to opt for a small ski resort

Child-friendly ski resorts are a godsend when you go on a skiing holiday with young children. What benefits does this offer?
  • A small ski resort is a good choice because it is smaller and easier to keep an eye on the children.
  • A small ski resort often has fewer après-ski bars and the nightlife is nil, making it quieter for families.
  • Winter sports in a family-friendly ski resort are more geared to children. There are many activities and there is plenty of guidance.
  • There are often some more blue runs on which you can learn to ski quietly and yet see many different parts of the area.
  • Thanks to good ski schools, your children learn fast and can try adventurous skiing.
