Childhood Memories that Remain Forever.
The first runs in the snow, building a snowman with a carrot nose, and tobogganing down into the valley under a full moon.
With its family-friendly ski regions, Carinthia offers the best conditions for an unforgettable winter holiday. Big or small, experiences and impressions not soon to be forgotten await visitors to Austria’s sunny and snowy south. As a particularly affordable starter package for families, the Topskipass Kärnten-Osttirol-Gold, as well as numerous regional flat-rate passes, offer many attractive benefits besides unlimited access to the slopes.
The Carinthian winter is known for its wide array of winter delights. Around 850 kilometers of groomed slopes are spread across 30 ski areas in Carinthia and East Tyrol, most of them with a piste grade of “excellent,” offering families a safe and cosy experience, removed from the hustle and bustle.
For the first few runs, Carinthia’s certified ski schools with their money-back guarantee are the right place to start: After a three-day course, absolute beginners will be able to navigate the blue slopes without any difficulty, or your money back. The flat rate of 129 Euros includes the cost of equipment rental for ski poles, ski boots and a helmet or, accordingly, a snowboard, boots and helmet.
For parents who want to keep up with their children on the slopes, Carinthia’s ski schools also offer beginners courses as well as courses for those trying to regain their confidence after a long break from skiing, in which participants can learn the newest techniques in one-on-one or small group sessions from trained ski instructors.
But it’s not only about skiing in Carinthia. An exciting programme of events for a successful family holiday is also waiting off the piste.
