Family Days at Kreischberg

In pre- and post-season, on Family Days children up to 15 years can go free when accompanied by an adult when purchasing a multi-day ticket of over two days. With the Young Family Ticket, the second adult only pays the children's price when the family is out and about with children of up to 3 years.

 

Freestyling at Kreischberg

The hotspot for freestyle is the Snowpark Kreischberg, which has created the ideal conditions for snowboarders and skiers. The Snowpark also boasts a jump funbox, a tube flat, a line box flat, fun pipe area elements and several medium areas. For anyone wishing take a crack at it for the first time, there are of course beginners' elements available. The skiing and snowboarding schools at Kreischberg also offer workshops at the Snowpark.

 

Fun & action at Kreischberg

Of course, all the extras at Kreischberg are also a magnet. At the mountain station for the gondola lift, guests can expect three secured tubing runs. Non-skiers or boarders can also use the gondola with winter footwear and have a go at tubing. The tubing lift conveys you back up nice and comfortably.

Tip: Why not have a go on the race track, or the daredevils among you can take on the speed runs. Test your ability as a racer on the permanent race track: the time it takes to negotiate the 20 poles or so is automatically measured, giving you a good guideline on how long you still need to train before winning your first gold medal! On the speed run, you will be flying around 100 m down a steep slope, measuring speeds of up to 80 km/h.

 

Especially for the children

At the Dinopark right by the Kreischi Lift, little ones can learn how to ski in a fun and play-based way. At Yabba Dabba Doo Land at the mountain station for the Sunshine lifts, youngsters are greeted with amusing figures that definitely make practising a whole lot easier. But learning how to ski tends to move a little faster on the Kreischberg anyway, thanks to the magic carpet, the baby lift and the mini bumps course.

 

Winter hiking on the Kreischberg

For those who aren't winter sports fans but still want to enjoy the wonderful winter landscape, there are two sign-posted and maintained high-altitude hiking trails on the Kreischberg. Walk the Kreischbergsee circular trail or follow the high-altitude hiking trail through the pine forest, absorbing the magnificent views and wintry surroundings. Both routes start directly at the mountain station for the 6-seater gondola lift, so you can make your ascent and descent in comfort.

TIP: These fantastic high-altitude hiking trails are also suitable for families with small children and babies. You can bring your buggy with you on the gondola. The well-maintained snow trails are no problem for a good set of wheels!
