Children up to the age of 6 years ski for free in this resort and a whopping 50 per cent discount is enjoyed by those aged 6 to 18. There is no better way of encouraging „older children“ to get up the moun-tain – away from school and study stress. Bobo Club Hochpustertal is perfect beginner‘s terrain for the little ones and young snowboarders can test their limits at the Boarders’ Best Place at 2,130 metres altitude. Freshly groomed and shaped every day, the Ski & Snowboardpark Yellowsnow at the top station of the gondola lifts is Austria’s southernmost Snow Park – equipped with a plethora of obstacles for beginner to pro standards as well as its’ own designated set of lifts.
A real favourite in the Christmas, Easter and half term holidays are the Freestyle and Freeride-Camps with professional athletes (www.yellowsnow.at) and the Risk’n’Fun-Camps with the Austrian Alpine As-sociation. Queues at the lifts and congestion on the pistes just doesn’t happen at the Ski Centre Hochpustertal. The whole family has plenty of room to make wide arcs on 55 kilometres of slopes. Stamina levels can be tested on the two maxi downhill runs to Sillian (11 km) and Außervillgraten (9 km). Favourable altitude levels and snow making facilities right down to the valley ensure snow-sure, fun-filled family skiing from December through to April. Family ski holidays couldn’t be easier, with the accommodation only 170 metres away from the base station of the lifts:
