    Family Vacation

    Summer or winter – the youngsters can look forward to lots of really great adventures in Schladming-Dachstein. 

    Thanks to numerous family-friendly hikes including a theme path, barefoot path and fairytale path, families have unique ways to discover nature. For more action, experiences such as the Alpine slide, forest high-ropes course, pony riding and via ferratas suitable for children guarantee unforgettable holiday moments. 

    In winter, our family ski mountains are there for you. With the various child-friendly pistes, Kinderlands and ski passes that are gentle on the family budget, nothing stands in the way of your skiing enjoyment. Away from the piste, activities such as tobogganing and sledding, igloo building and alpaca hikes promising countless vivid memories.

    Family Ski

    In addition to the pistes of the 4-Mountain Ski Area, the region is also home to several smaller ski mountains that are ideal for families and children. With 90 km of blue-rated (beginner) pistes in total, it has never been easier to begin your skiing “career”.

    The offer for our smallest ski guests is nothing to sneeze at either. With Kaliland and the kids’ play slopes in Ramsau am Dachstein, the KinderSkiSchaukel on the Riesneralm in Grimming-Donnersbachtal, Galstiland on the Galsterberg, as well as Hopsiland on the Planai and Kinderland on the Reiteralm, their every wish is certain to be fulfilled. The carousels, moguls, speaking figures and slides don’t merely guarantee lots of fun in the snow – children also learn to ski playfully and, ultimately, love the sport. The icing on the cake: 17 ski schools in the region with state-certified ski instructors who guarantee a safe, fun-filled intro to snow sports.
