However old the kids are, we’re sure the whole family are going to have a great time on holiday in the Europa Sport region. There’s plenty to keep you all entertained on the pistes, as well as some great off slope activities if anyone has enough energy left afterwards!
The local ski schools are brilliant- the Frost ski school have a great range of lessons, and OFFPISTE offer advanced lessons and guiding all around the local area. Families of similar abilities can learn together in private group lessons or split up for the morning and ski together in the afternoon. The ‘Rock and Ski’ course in Kaprun and ‘Power Teens’ in Zell offer a range of lessons in more progressive forms of skiing- freestyle, freeriding - for youngsters who are looking to improve their technique and emulate their professional heroes. The smallest members of the family are well looked after too. With BOBO the penguin in Kaprun, and Schmidolin the dragon in Zell, their imaginations can run wild whilst they have the time of their lives on the snow. Kindergartens are available in both resorts for children too young to stand up on skis and childcare can be arranged by many of the region’s hotels. There are plenty of on mountain restaurants throughout the resorts- you’re never far from a rest or a snack - which is great for skiing with youngsters. The Sonnkogel on Maiskogel has a great kids menu and even has a climbing wall to keep the little terrors occupied when they’ve finished lunch.
When you’ve finished the days skiing, why not treat the entire family at the Tauern Spa? Conveniently located between the Zell and Kaprun, the kids will have a whale of a time. They’ll love the slinky slide and the water slide, and the two specialist kid’s pools are suitable for all ages. Parents too, will be able to fully unwind- the saunas and spa baths will leave you relaxed and there are a range of massages available if you’re in need of further pampering.
