The Schmitten – THE mountain for families in Salzburg

The youngsters playfully learn to ski on the magic carpet or in Schmidolin’s dragon tunnel. Older children can show off their skills in Schmidolin’s dragon park on the wave run and between the archways. The chairlifts are particularly child-friendly. Well-qualified ski instructors teach the kids how to ski in the two ski school kinderlands – it’s much more fun learning as a group.

The Glacier – Kitzsteinhorn

Starting from October, you experience Salzburg’s earliest start to the season in the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort. Top-modern mountain railways and Salzburg’s highest-situated chairlift take you uphill to over 3.000 metres. You carve your turns in the snow on wide, open glacier slopes, through pristine powder snow or across the region’s steepest piste. Enjoy the first fresh snow of the skiing season and benefit from 100% snow-reliability between October and June on ski touring routes, in the first-class snow parks and on the glacier cross-country ski track in 2.900 m above sea level.
