SILVAPARK Galtür is the highest ski area in the Tyrolean valley of Paznaun. Its area division is the only one of its kind in Europe and lets every skier and snowboarder access the ideal slope for their preferences and skill level. The resort is divided into six sections, each is designed for a different target group.

The youngest among the guests will fell right at home in the Zwergerlwelt. Here, children can romp around at the kindergarten or take their first steps on skis in a playful and safe environment. The kids' ski school at Siggi's Bambiniland teaches kids how to safely move around on skis. The area is a great place for children to discover the wonderful world of winter sports.

Sector 02, the adventure land (Abenteuerland), is ideal for families. The route at the Soppapark takes you through tunnels, steep curves and down action-packed wave runs. Witches and forest spirits accompany kids and parents all the way to the witches' house in the Märchenwald. Explore the secrets of Alpine nature together with “Hemmsi” the ibex on the Jägerpfad. You'll have to overcome obstacles and steep turns at the cross trail, while the traffic trail teaches young skiers about the importance of traffic rules on the ski run.

The teenagers' favorite meeting point is sector 03, the action park. Race your friends at the speed measuring track Speedway to find out who's the fastest. Snowboarders and freestylers will want to check out the Zeinispark to try some new moves and tricks at the mini walls, rails and boxes. The mogul run will challenge your skills as well as the flexibility of your knees.

Freeriders are usually found at the deep snow area Heldenreich. Make daring leaps over boulders before heading right out into open terrain. At the “beep station” (Piepsstation), you can learn how to operate an avalanche beacon.

High & Nordic, the 6th sector, is designed specifically for cross-country skiers, ski tourers and snowshoe hikers. The area lets you explore the idyllic mountain world beside the Alpine ski runs.
