Your relaxed skiing holiday with children in Saalbach Hinterglemm

Every year, the question arises: "Where is the best place to go skiing with our child?" Especially when you haven't already found your favourite ski area yet. The desired holiday requirements often sound very similar: the accommodation should be centrally located, but not surrounded by après-ski bars. It would be desirable if lifts, slopes and ski schools were right next to the accommodation and finally a feel-good apartment in which all family members can feel at home, regardless of whether they are only a few months old or already a few decades old.

Let us present you a ski holiday in the Salzburger Land, more precisely in the Zirmhof in Saalbach.

We at the Zirmhof would like to bring you closer to the advantages of our ski area in Saalbach. How do you like to wake up with a view of the ski slope and cable car and having the advantages of direct access to the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn? Although Saalbach is one of the largest ski areas in Austria and now includes 3 ski areas thanks to the Alpin Card, there are definitely opportunities to teach children to ski comfortably and stress-free.

Spend your family holiday at the Zirmhof and check off the following points on your checklist. Whether you are traveling as a large family or single with a child, these points will make your family life a lot easier on your winter holiday:

With the Easter bonus, March will be the best month of your winter holiday

Have you ever been skiing in March? The warm rays of sunshine give a foretaste of summer, but you can feel the cold snow under your feet and can thus enjoy the most beautiful weeks of winter. Since it's not that cold anymore, children also have a lot more fun skiing. The morning hours in particular are ideal for pleasant hours on the slopes. The whole thing is rounded off by the Easter bonus. A really great promotion where children up to the age of 16 receive a free ski pass if one parent buys at least a 4-day ski pass. Your wallet will be happy too.

But before we get started, let's take a look at the packing list for your winter holiday with children:

If someone doesn't feel like skiing, it's not the end of the world. Sit on the terrace in front of one of our apartments (ideally you have booked Zirm 1, 2 or 3) enjoy the warm rays of sunshine and let your children romp in the snow. With us, you can not only ski to the front of the house in good snow conditions, but also have a large terrace on which big and small children can live out their imaginations. Build a snow woman for Olaf, an igloo or make the most beautiful snow angel the world has ever seen. Many fathers left us detailed snowmen, which we proudly present on our social media channels.

Or you can explore the area and take part in the Kids Winter Challenge. This is a new offer that brings families closer to the wide range of offers in our region. There are 6 places to conquer and points to collect for the Kids Winter Challenge Pass. We will be happy to print out the pass for you. If you have visited all stations, there is a medal for your diligence in the tourism association.

But now, enough of the side information, let's get to the individual stations:

At this point we would like to point out that there is nothing better than a skiing parent taxi (pull the children with the stick or take them between your legs). A wonderful and very popular way of transport among children. But beware, this could result in uncomfortable family knots on the Funslopes & Snow Trails.

We wish you wonderful winter weeks and hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
