The Wildkogel Arena - a superb place for families

A manageable 64 kilometres of pistes, mostly with red and blue downhill runs: the Wildkogel Arena is famed as being a superb family-friendly skiing area. This is a place where every member of your family will find their individual pace. Whether it's practising those first curves, conquering the black pistes at speed, or putting down tracks in the deep snow: there's something here for everyone.

At Christian Kreidl ski school in Neukirchen and Thomas Maier ski school in Bramberg, budding young skiers learn their first curves in the snow and improve their techniques. The mascots, Kogel-Mogel and Kogel-Mia, provide all their support to help the little ones learn skiing.

A variety of offers are also available for the youngest stars of the piste which make children's faces light up. From the ski kindergarten and children's restaurant, to adventure playgrounds, to colourful supporting programmes – the Wildkogel Arena very much deserves its accolade as a family-friendly skiing area.

For experienced ski enthusiasts, the fun park, night skiing under floodlight and the skimovie trail are particular highlights. On the skimovie trail, skiers can measure their racing times and analyse and improve their skiing style.

And after skiing in the Wildkogel Arena it's time for refreshments on the mountain or après-ski in Neukirchen or Bramberg!
