1 ski area | 6 sectors Gaining experience and learning step by step – with special emphasis on children Whoever is fit enough for a higher level will take a crack at the next sector. Here one has thought of children and adolescents in particular, because three of the six sectors are reserved for them: while the “Zwergerlwelt” (Kids World) is reserved for the littlest ones, the somewhat bigger ones will get their money’s worth in the “Abenteuerland” (Adventure World), featuring an enchanted forest with witch house, mogul runs and steep curves. The “Actionpark” is meant for adolescents – though the exception proves the rule, as everyone knows, and so one or the other young-at-heart will likely test his or her skills with jumps and on rails. The adventure ski arena is rounded off with the “Heldenreich” (A place for heroes) for off-piste adventures and freeriding as well as the “Pistenparadies” with 40 km of ski runs. Sector 06 offers cross-country skiing with 74 kilometres of trails, snowshoeing and winter hiking trails on the programme.
