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.
