    We’ve been to Austria over 20 times but we’ve never had such an enjoyable experience – what a joy to discover a more personal side to such a beautiful country.

Family Skiing Holidays in Scheffau, Tirol

Family Skiing Holidays are great fun and Scheffau is an ideal gateway to SkiWelt, Austria’s largest inter-connected ski arena. 

The pistes in Scheffau, at the heart of SkiWelt, are suitable for all family members, from adult or child beginners through intermediate skiers to advanced skiing on black runs and ski routes.  For those who need some help getting started or want to improve their skiing skills there’s a range of courses and private lessons to suit all family members available at ski school. You can snow board here too or for non-skiing family members there’s plenty of fun off the piste too so everyone can enjoy a great family skiing holiday together.

What makes Scheffau especially suitable for families is the excellent beginners reputation of the ski schools here with enclosed ski parks for the children to start in whilst the adults take to the piste immediately in the snow bowl at the top of the gondola – a great psychological boost right from the beginning.  Even if your child is too young for a full course (four years and upwards) you can still start them skiing with a mini-lesson in this special area and taster lessons for adults are also available so everyone can join in the family holiday fun.

Family skiing holidays vary greatly so we’re pleased to be able to offer a wide range of accommodation for your enjoyment. Choose from 4* catered chalets, 3* gasthof pensions (hotels, in English), self-catering or B&B apartments and bed&breakfasts. Prices vary from budget to luxury and there are seasonal fluctuations so we’re able to offer a wide variety of family skiing holidays to suit your family.

We can arrange any of the following – either individually or as a tailor-made package just for you : car-hire, ferry crossings, accommodation, ski-hire, lift-passes, ski-school or private lessons, airport transfers. All you have to do is ask and we’ll use our local knowledge to your family advantage.

Family skiing holidays don’t just extend to the pistes.  Horse-drawn sleigh rides are available locally, either during the day or evening and there are lots of other daytime or evening activities such as tobogganing, candlelit walks and Austrian bowling you can do together on a family skiing holiday in Scheffau.
