It is the ideal ski area for families. The Ski School offers a great variety of programs for children and adults. There are weekday, weekend and vacation programs, each designed for a certain ability level. No matter which one you choose you will always get the best instruction possible by experienced staff. Groups shouldn´t miss to check the weekly group specials. You can get all equipment needed at the rental shop. You want your own stuff? Pay a visit to the Snow Sports Shop where you will find the latest ski and snowboard stuff! Take a break and relax at one of the four dining facilities on the mountain.
