Plenty of sunshine, high altitude slopes, a funpark and a children's area – despite its relatively small size, Sillian ski resort in the Hochpustertal Valley offers everything that larger wintersports resorts do.
With its south-east facing slopes, Sillian ski resort in the Hochpustertal Valley near the Austrian-Italian border offers a small but diverse network of pistes between 1,100 and over 2,400 metres above sea level. There are plenty of red (intermediate) pistes for cruising, including the long descents down to the villages of Sillian and Außervillgraten, though beginners will find some blue runs and experts can challenge themselves on the resort's black runs and off-piste ski routes. The family-friendly theme extends to the lift pass prices. For children there is plenty to see and do in the "Bobo Kinderclub" with its own beginners' area near the top of the Thurntaler-Gondelbahn cable car. Snowboarders and freestylers can work on their tricks and flips in the Yellowsnow Funpark, which has features and obstacles for everyone from beginners to pros.
