Towering snowmen and a reindeer herd

We can definitely recommend the Sexten Dolomites for a family holiday. The family-friendly approach starts with the ski pass. Children up to the age of eight can ride the lifts free of charge when accompanied by an adult holding a valid lift pass. To give youngsters a chance to find their feet on short and quiet slopes, there are plenty of practice lifts in Vierschach, Waldheim and Moos. In addition, there are also two dedicated children’s zones – at the valley station in Vierschach and on the Rotwand.

We can highly recommend the latter for all families. Children’s eyes are likely to light up at the mountain station of the Rotwand-Bahn: On exiting the lift, visitors are greeted by a family of snowmen towering some ten metres into the air! Moreover, the mountain is home to Italy’s only herd of reindeers. The animals are free to wander across the slopes and every Thursday youngsters can follow their feeding session live and up close. Families also shouldn’t miss the Rudi-Rentier-Weg (no. 10a). It branches off the Signaue run and gives youngsters the low down on the ten FIS rules in a playful way. If your children have had enough of skiing for one day, they can have more fun on the snow at one of the two sled runs.

The rest of the ski area also gives a lot of thought to offering families plenty of options and remedying any concerns. With the many gondolas which connect the individual mountains with one another, parents don’t have to worry about children getting on and off the lifts. Although there are a lot of red-marked runs, there are also plenty of blue-rated trails scattered across the ski area, helping youngsters to avoid the most difficult sections. However, it should be noted that a certain level of proficiency is required for kids to be able to explore the entire ski area.
