Small, but mighty fine ski resorts for the whole family

Family-friendly ski resorts in Styria

Off to the snow we go! In Styria, it's not just the big ski areas that have a lot to offer. If you take a closer look, you will discover many small ski resorts that impress their visitors with affordable family rates, practice lifts and cosy ski huts with spacious sundecks. The small, but mighty fine ski resorts are easy to navigate, family-friendly and inexpensive.

And what would a day on the slopes be without a stop for refreshments! Families can recharge their batteries in one of the many child-friendly huts while enjoying a variety of Styrian delicacies.

Skiing with children in Styria

Optimal conditions for all family members

Easy, safe and, above all, spacious slopes – these are the merits of the family-friendly ski resorts in Styria. Lift attendants know their guests by name right from the start and ensure the safety of your children when they use the lifts and practice their first turns. But that's not all: The resorts hold lots of surprises in store for young visitors, making skiing even more fun. Care for some examples?

  • In St. Jakob im Walde, you can find the world's first drive-through toilet and the Rumpel-die-Pumpel-Bahn. Uphill tobogganing provides variety and is an enjoyable, new experience for the whole family.
  • Little visitors can also have plenty of fun on Galsterberg. On a ride through the "Gallic Ski Village" children meet Gauls, Romans as well as talking, barking or oinking animals – a truly unforgettable experience.
  • At Salzstiegl ski resort, very young children and beginners feel particularly at home on the Lupowiese and on the Zwergenlift downhill run. There is also a speed-measurement course on the Buchenwald downhill run, where everyone can check and improve their downhill speed. Additional entertainment is provided by the new Boulderwand climbing hall at Moasterhaus ski inn, right next to the slope.
