The Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau resort has everything families could wish for: excellent childcare facilities, ski lessons for beginners and a selection of pistes catering for all abilities.
A few years ago the ski resorts of Alpbachtal and Wildschönau in the western mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps joined forces to create a wintersports arena that is today extremely popular with families. Most of the slopes in the Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau resort are rated blue (easy) or red (intermediate), though there are also some challenging black runs and freeride routes. Snowboarders will find plenty to keep them entertained in the three snowparks.
Although this pretty resort in the east of Tirol has a large number of pistes and lifts, it is much more relaxed than many other ski areas of a similar size. There are two ski kindergardens for children, while the instructors at the five local ski schools will be happy to show visitors of all ages the right technique on the slopes. The Snowpark Alpbachtal and Family-Park Schatzberg have easy Beginner Lines with small jumps and obstacles. The highest point in the resort is the mountain hut below the summit of the Wiedersbergerhorn mountain at 2,025 metres above sea level.
All in all there are more than 20 restaurants and huts serving delicious food typical of the region. Most of the pistes are covered by snowmaking facilities – just in case Mother Nature does not provide enough of the white stuff.
