Skiing with children on Fulseck

The Gasti Snow Park provides ideal conditions for newbies in winter sports. Beginners take their first steps on the magic carpet and practise their first turns on the gently sloping ski run. Taking the button lift, they can go up and ski down as many times as they wish.

More experienced children can use the Gipfelbahn Fulseck cable car, which reliably transports them up the mountain to the Dorfgastein – Großarltal ski area. At the top, a family-friendly run (“Familienabfahrt”) starts, winding its way down to the middle station. For a bit of extra fun and thrill, you can also give the Funline a try. This special ski run features sections with witches, dwarves, tunnels and a slalom course.
