Obertauern is not just a winter paradise for adults. This Salzburg ski resort also has a lot to offer for the little ones – Bibo Bear for instance. Like he always says: ‘I invite all my friends, whether they are young or old, to the children’s ski park.’
Bibo Bear family ski park Obertauern
Even our youngest guest have a lot to look forward to in the Bibo Bear family ski park, where they can playfully hone their skiing skills on three pistes that were developed just for them, as they find exciting things to learn and train ther motoric abilities.
Bibo Bear learnt everything about skiing from the local animals – Anton Adler the eagle, Gundi Gämse the chamois, Harry Hase the hare and Ricky Reh the roe deer. Your children will also learn the fundamentals of skiing in the family ski park – concentration and attentiveness, orientation on the piste, a good sense of balance, becoming accustomed to speed, swings, carving, and much more.
Bobby’s ski adventure
Quite a few unique experiences await the little ones at Bobby’s ski adventure. Snow hares really flourish when it gets warmer. During a ski adventure with the Obertauern snow hare Bobby, children can safely leave their down jackets at home. Courses (for children up to the age of 5 and for those aged between 6 -14) take place in late March or early April, when the sun’s rays are already quite powerful and make this unique skiing adventure possible.
The GEISTERBAHN in the fairy-tale park at the Schaidbergbahn
For the very courageous – whether young or old – Obertauern has a very special treat to offer. ‘Scary fun right at the piste.’ Since last season we have had our own scary piste here in Obertauern. Only the most courageous skiers and snowboarders have the nerve to head into the 30-metre wooden tunnel, where a lot of (frighteningly well carved) scary figures await. It is very special kind of adventure.
Children always want to try something new, after all they are inquisitive by nature. That is why there are so many opportunities in Obertauern for our youngest visitors to satisfy their curiosity. Children love cycling, but did you know that you can do this on snow? Rent a snowbike with your children and test your balance. Maybe your children have an aptitude for cross-country skiing and will be inspired by this lovely sport. It's easy to give this a go in Obertauern, since there are plenty of slopes – for beginners as well as advanced cross-country skiers. Still looking for another alternative? Tobogganing always puts smiles on children's faces, particularly when they are taken up to the top on a skidoo.
You will certainly have seen biathlon on the television. You can even try this out with your family here with us in Obertauern. Take your time – it really is great fun! Talking abut fun, we definitely must tell you about airboarding. This is a bit like sliding across the pistes on an air bed. Those of you who don't want to ski during the day, might enjoy the special atmosphere during night-time skiing. It's always worth a try. Ice-skating is also a classic winter sport. Rightly so, since effortlessly gliding across the ice is fun and particularly lovely in the evening on the floodlit ice rink.
Children – and parents too, of course – can compete against each other on the specially designed race routes. Who will be the fastest on the track through Stangenwald? Special timed courses are available at the Kirchbühel lift and the Schönalmbahn. We might even see a future World Cup winner there. It is a lot of fun at any rate and if you have always wanted to know how fast you really are at skiing, then you should drop by at Sonnenlift 3 and Schrotteralmlift where we have set up our own track to measure your speed. Find out who's the fastest in your family.
Whatever you decide, one thing is for sure, Obertauern is a skiing resort for all ages – for young and old alike. Obertauern has something to offer for everyone.
