We tested with the child the ski slopes at the Grossarl ski resort in the Salzburgerland region, Austria. Check out which routes are friendly for children and beginners, and which are for advanced skiers only.
Grossarl-Dorfgastein is a ski resort on two slopes of the Kreuzkogel massif (2021 m above sea level). It has 73 kilometers of ski slopes and 17 lifts. Grossarl is also part of the Ski amadé – Austria’s largest ski area – with 760 kilometers of ski slopes and 270 ski lifts. And all this on one ski pass. During 3 days spent in Grossarltal, we were discovering the ski areas on the eastern side of Kreuzkogel, in the Grossarl resort. If you are going there, check what awaits you on the slope.
