Skiing in the Salzburger Saalachtal

Dream slopes for the whole family

The multi-award winning beginners’ ski pistes in the Almenwelt Lofer and idyllic Unken Heutal are the perfect playgrounds for Mum, Dad, the kids and the grandparents too. 

Family-friendliness is of the utmost importance in the Salzburger Saalachtal. Here this is much more than the typical Pinzgauer hospitality or family-friendly prices, wide and flat pistes – ideal terrain for beginners, children and returning skiers. 

The Almenwelt Lofer

Winter sports enthusiasts will find perfectly groomed pistes and modern, childproof chairlifts in the Almenwelt Lofer. Not without reason has the ski area, with 10 cable cars and lifts as well as 46 kilometres of pistes, received numerous awards and top marks in the category of family-friendliness. For the smallest skiers there is a Children’s Land (Kinderland) with a 140 metre long, covered, magic carpet which brings the children comfortably uphill. For all those who are already at home on the slopes, the Lofi Funline offers exciting adventures next to the Family Express lift.
