Fun on the slopes in Austria’s garden

Skiing in the Eastern Styria

In the winter months, Austria’s garden is transformed into a true family skiing paradise. In the 13 small but nice skiing regions, the youngest in particular rule the slopes.

Special highlights await young guests on the slopes, from magic carpets to the drive-through toilet to the “Rumpel-die-Pumpel-Bahn” – your kids will be amazed and their school friends will be jealous. Starting out on the slopes this way is really fun. Ski schools also offer individual and group instruction. The right equipment and expert advice are provided at the rental centre on site. Naturally the equipment you bring yourself is inspected as well.


Family ski resorts

We believe that tomorrow’s world champions may start their skiing career in the Eastern Styria. Even now, they expertly zoom down the slopes.

Waht goes up must come down

Your stay in Austria’s garden should be pleasant and by no means hectic. Not on the slopes, and not in the cosy lodges where everyone hangs out together after the final run. Parents in particular, whose nerves may be put to the test during the first attempts by their offspring on the slopes, can lower their heart rate in the Eastern Styria. 

Both the ski schools and the family-friendly atmosphere contribute to keeping kids happy. Activity on the slopes continues with night skiing after sundown.

Ski rentals & ski schools

Anyone who lacks the right skiing equipment can rent it on site at our ski lifts and from the rental centres. Here you will find appropriate skis and snowboards to enjoy the slopes. From youngsters making their first attempt on skis to adults who have yet to master the art to professionals who want to improve their style, the ski schools in the Eastern Styria adventure region are here for you.
Almost all ski resorts and the ski schools on site offer equipment rentals.
