Winter holidays for families in Vorarlberg
Cozy family ski resorts with a high experience factor away from the crowds
Ski Resort Brandnertat - Excellent for families
Brandnertal makes a very strong point of being family friendly and this philosophy is very evident in the ski school product.
Young children (from 3-5 years) have their own learning area ‘Kinderland’ situated in the middle of Brand village. Here they take their first steps towards learning to ski in what may be described as a playground on snow, complete with fun characters and little courses laid out with colourful poles and arches marking the way.
Children aged 8 and under ski free at all times, and there are discounts for older children and teenagers up to eighteen years.
Familiy Ski area Sonnenkopf, Klostertal - Top for families
Sonnenkopf ski area is family friendly and suitable for beginners and intermediates happy skiing a smaller ski area with quiet open slopes; but it can also be good for experienced powder hounds using Klostertal as a low cost base from which to explore the entire Arlberg ski area.
The Sonnenkopf ski area, up to 2,300m, is served by nine ski lifts with 30km of marked runs best for beginners and intermediates, 1,200m vertical top to bottom skiing and including interesting off-piste. The black run, 1,5 km, with a gradient of 70% which is part of the steepest slopes in Austria is available for expert skiers and snow boarders.
Beginner skiers and boarders, novices included, can learn high in the ski area on short, well groomed, blue runs accessed from the top of the Sonnenkopf gondola and close to the Bergrestaurant Sonnenkopf (1830m), hence they too can enjoy panoramic mountain views from the outset. Convenient family tickets are available.

A children-friendly ski school that uses the latest teaching methods and a MINICLUB for children from 3 years onwards, where children are professionally prepared for their first day on the slopes, make the Faschina-Fontanella ski area a unique family ski area.
