Fun on the boards – for young and old

Whether in the snow park, on the fun slopes and race tracks or while paragliding: the choice is huge when it comes to bringing a little action and variety to the holiday program. So that you don’t lose track, we’ve summarized the many options for you:

Skilful about boxes, rails and kickers

It gets spectacular in the snow parks of the region. But what is a snowpark? Quite simply: an obstacle park for skiers and snowboarders with ski jumps, railings and ramps. While in the past only the pros dared to tackle the impressive tricks, now also newbies have the opportunity to do so.

Boredom? Misreporting – on the Funslopes and Snow Trails!

Snow snails, steep curves, tunnels and waves make the Funslopes a highlight for the whole family and fun guarantors for in between. Like the Funslopes, the Snow Trails are packed with adventurous obstacles and exciting elements. The only difference is the relative naturalness of the trails. Often they are a bit off the slopes and therefore are not artificially snowed. In this case, Mother Nature decides on the route.

Race like a champion …

… you can use the various speed and race tracks. Thanks to timekeeping, amateur racers also know directly how they have performed compared to others. “Light, camera uuuund action!” is the literal motto on the SkiMovie piste. A personal video is the perfect souvenir of the rapid descent – and can be shared with friends and family via social media.

Variety for toboggan fans

Tobogganing experiences of the slightly different – and admittedly more bubbly – kind are snowtubing or a ride on the Alpine Coaster.

In both cases, the wild ride makes for tousled hair and an extra wide grin on the face!
