More information about child-friendly ski areas

Already knew? In most ski areas in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and France children can experience skiing for free. The age limit of 5 to 6 years of life generally applies. However, families with older children can breathe a sigh of relief, because there are some ski resorts where children up to 7 years, in some up to 10 or 12 years and in the Almenwelt Lofer even get a free ski pass up to the age of 15. For Snowplaza, the ski pass price is of course not the only indicator of child-friendly skiing. But especially when it comes to teaching the little ones how to ski properly, the costs play a role.
