Family Ski Holidays in Europe: Where Can Kids Ski Free (Part 2)?

It’s time for part 2 of our report on where kids can ski free in Europe (yesterday we covered Switzerland and France).

I spent the morning calling ski resorts in Austria, Germany, and Italy. Most resorts in these countries offer some kind of free skiing for very young kids.

St. Anton did not make the list because their program is not free, but kids under 7 ski for 10€ a day. The resorts in Germany did not have information readily available so I’ll any additional tidbits when/if I get the feedback requested.

  1. Hi,
    The information about St Anton is not correct. The fee is for a full season, not a single day.

    Regards
