Skiing with children in Lech Zürs

Ski boots, hot chocolate & family bliss

Small kids bundled up in their fluffy skiing suits slowly – one after the other – following their ski instructor down the kids slope. Families sipping on steaming hot chocolate from their thermosflask on the ski lift while chattering about their next routes. Teenagers daring and celebrating their first jumps in the snow park with their new friends.

You can already smell the fresh winter air? So do we. A family ski holiday in Austria is one for the books – the only problem: deciding where you and your loved ones should go. But don’t worry, we’ve got just the place for you.

Our family hotel Sonnenburg is located at the heart of the Lech Zürs ski resort, which is one of the best family ski resorts in Austria and we would love to show you why. From skiing lessons to childcare offers, easy slopes, fun parks and more – you and your kids will make blissful memories together.

Ski schools, guides & childcare

Lech Zürs is not only rich in ski runs, cabins and cableways, there are also more than 500 certified winter sports and ski instructors waiting for you to join them on the slopes. Eight ski schools in the area ensure winter fun for everyone with group and private lessons for children aged 4,5 years and older, teenagers and adults. From absolute beginner to passionate skiing expert – everyone will find the right class to make the most of their ski holiday while honing their skills in our family-friendly ski resort in Austria.

And – speaking from experience – it is a relief and a joy to know that your children are under the great care of professional and experienced ski instructors. Instead of parents rushing after their children who have yet to figure out how to go any other direction than just downwards, kids can enjoy their first experiences on skis in a safe and playful way. A bonus: While your kids are learning the ropes of skiing you can enjoy some solo time on the more advanced slopes in the area.

If your children are still too young for or simply uninterested in skiing, they may also spend time at the Sonnenburg childcare “Kinderwelt” or at the Oberlech Kid’s Club, where two-year-olds and older kids can join fun indoor and outdoor activities. Both, the ski school Oberlech as well as the Oberlech Kid’s Club, are only a few steps away from our ski hotel Sonnenburg at the Arlberg – even allowing parents to watch their kids’ lessons in the practice area from our sun terrace.

Easy slopes & ski runs for kids

Easy slopes in our family-friendly ski resort in Austria

A great mix of easy and advanced ski runs is the ideal for ski holidays with children. While the youngsters (and of course older beginners too) can conquer green and blue slopes, more avid skiers can rush down red and black pistes. In the family ski resort Lech Zürs in Austria 43 % of the slopes are green or blue, making them the perfect playground for early attempts on skis and first breakthroughs in the learning process.

The practice area and children slope right in front of the Hotel Sonnenburg is one of many: By conveyer belt, kids are comfortably transferred to the area, where they are greeted with fun sculptures, easy ski runs and small obstacles … It never gets boring!

Fun & action

Fun areas & activities without ski

You and your children aren’t new to skiing and crave some more action? Look forward to the fun areas and snow parks in our family-friendly ski resort in Austria. With jumps, kickers, rails, obstacles and more, fun parks such as the Snowpark Lech are the perfect place for brave children, teens and adults.

But that’s not all. While Lech Zürs truly is a mecca for skiing, you and your kids surely will also enjoy fun family activities off the slopes: Tobogganing, winter hiking and ice skating are the icing on the cake when it comes to your winter holiday bliss.
