And throughout the week, a varied animation program ensures lots of fun and action.

Ski pass

The ski pass is not included in the course price. Lift tickets are available in our online shop or can be purchased directly on site at our ski school office or at the lift ticket offices next door. Beginners and slightly advanced children can use the 3 magic carpets and the ski carousel in our ski school’s own children’s area free of charge to learn the basic technique. Children need a lift pass as soon as they can turn and brake and use a ski lift. Children up to their 6th birthday can use all lift facilities with the free Mini Card. Children from the age of 6 need a regular lift ticket for the Dorfgastein-Großarltal ski area.

Ski rental

The ski equipment is not included in the course price! Make sure you have the right ski length (beginners max chest height) and good boot material. Warm clothing, gloves, ski or sunglasses, balaclava, helmet and sunscreen are also part of an optimal equipment. Children up to the age of 15 are required by law to wear a ski helmet. Ski poles are not required for beginners. The appropriate ski equipment can be rented from our rental partner Sport Knauseder.

Final race

The big ski race will take place on Thursday. The race takes only about 15 minutes per group. Therefore we would recommend you to book the children’s ski course up to and including Thursday. There is a schedule for the race. The ski instructors will inform you about the start time in the morning before the race.

Award ceremony

The award ceremony and prize giving will take place on Thursday after the ski course within the group.

Top equipped!

Nothing is as important to us as the health of your children, so we offer a free rental of ski helmets and safety vests for all course participants in our ski school office.
