For the little ones aged 4-5 we recommend our exclusive Snowli Kids Village at Riffelberg. The area covers about 3,500 m2 and has fairy-tale figures, magic carpets, a merry-go-round and children's lifts. Under the expert's watchful eye, the children will take their first steps in the snow and learn how to ski. Soon the little ones will be making their first descent and on Friday they'll participate in their first race! Don't forget that you are skiing in the high mountains where thick clothing, mittens, goggles, sunscreen and lip protection are essential.
