The popular winter sports resort of Obergurgl has everything that skiers and snowboarders could wish for in a family holiday. Nearly all the blue slopes are very wide and not too steep, making them suitable for children as well. Parents can enjoy a more leisurely descent with the kids in a much quieter setting. The most popular slopes for those with children are at the Festkogel. Getting there is easy. Just take the Rosskarbahn cabin lift by Hotel Edelweiß & Gurgl in the centre of the resort. For children especially, that's a great way to arrive, as it means they don't have to carry their heavy ski equipment.

What's more, once you get to the top at Wurmgurgl, the descent is very gentle, making it a very popular run for children. If you are on holiday in Obergurgl with the children, you will find lots of family-friendly ski huts and restaurants where you can relax in great style after a tiring day on the slopes.

Obergurgl is ideally suited for those who want to take their children skiing for the first time. From the age of three onwards, children can take lessons at one of the three excellent ski schools and ski nurseries in the resort, where they will be properly cared for and taught how to ski in a fun way. Experienced ski instructors are trained how to deal with young children patiently and will teach them the most important techniques and tricks. Many ski schools have taster days for children. That way, parents can send their children to the ski school for a day to find out if they really enjoy skiing. Naturally, parents can stay for the lesson and watch their children take their first steps on the slopes. If you prefer, you can leave your children in the safe hands of the school's instructors, while you head off to the more demanding slopes. Trained instructors are on hand to look after your children and organise activities such as craftwork as well as skiing lessons.

The gentle descents are ideal for parents who want to ski with their children.
