Winter holidays with kids in Carinthia, Austria

Things are quite idyllic on the easy and intermediate slopes of the Weissensee family ski area. The Weissensee Kids’ Ski World with kids ski school is a huge hit with children. Winter fun and adventures on the slopes during your family holiday are a given, and the ski instructors at the Weissensee ski school are happy to help you practice your plough turns. Your best friend on ski holidays with kids at Lake Weissensee will surely be Meterix. He is the mascot of our excellent discount system and helps parents save money on family ski holidays. The motto of this system is: the shorter - the cheaper! Kids (under 12) pay according to their height in participating hotels, inns and holiday apartments at the ski hire, ski school and ski lift.

And what can you do after skiing? Each winter, Lake Weissensee in Carinthia, Austria, transforms into the largest constantly-frozen natural ice surface in Europe! The ice is up to 40 cm thick. Go ice skating, play ice hockey or just mess about on the completely slick, 5- to 25-kilometre-long ice skating areas. Ice skating and speed skating lessons are also offered for especially competitive visitors.
Or perhaps you’d like to go sledging? That’s no problem at Lake Weissensee! The 4-kilometre-long natural sledging hill runs from the Naggler Alm alp into the valley. A yodel and tobogganing session is held at the alp every Wednesday. Yodel master Helmut teaches participants the Weissensee yodel before everyone zips down the hill on their sledge.

Look forward to the following on your winter family holiday:

  • Family-friendly ski area and Weissensee Kids’ Ski World
  • Ski school for children
  • Meterix - the Lake Weissensee Kids’ Mascot has great discounts for kids under 12
  • Free ski shuttle
