The family ski area in the Salzkammergut

The cozy children's and family ski area in the Salzkammergut

The Postalm Winterpark is a paradise for children and parents: every family member has the opportunity to be active themselves or to watch the relaxed hustle and bustle from a sun lounger. The clearly laid out infrastructure provides young and old with a safe setting for joint and individual activities. The size of the winter park is manageable, the atmosphere is informal and the beginner slopes are perfect for those first turns.

The Postalm Winter Park has it all for children and families

  • Covered Wonder Carpet
  • Parcour next to the Wonder Carpet, which you can also ride with tubes (tires).
  • 1 platter lift and 3 T-bar lifts, with blue slopes that are ideal for gaining your first skiing experience.
  • Uphill tobogganing is possible on the platter lift, i.e. the platter lift pulls you up and you just ski down.
  • The family slope is also a blue slope and therefore suitable for beginners.
  • Ski courses for beginners and advanced skiers at the Gabi Pilz ski school.
  • A 4-kilometer and an 8-kilometer winter hiking trail, which is fun for young and old and leads past a natural toboggan run and the Stroblerhütte.
