Children's ski schools

Children are happy when they learn skiing with fun and joy. This is guaranteed by the top trained ski instructors of the ski schools, who inspire the kids for skiing in a playful way. The ski instructors also know when a breather with games in the snow is necessary or the next learning step is possible.

When should your child start skiing? As parents, you are the best judge of whether your offspring are ready for their first days of skiing. Otherwise, an age of three years is just right.

In the Kinderland areas of the two ski areas in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, exciting routes, colourful figures and mascots await the kids, who will quickly make them forget every fall. They are all in the valley and therefore close to the accommodation and car park.

Whether a course is in a group or with a private teacher depends on the child. Especially at the beginning, a group is advantageous because the child is with people of the same age and therefore has more fun than in individual lessons. In addition, group courses are cheaper.
