Pitzi, powder & pistes: Skiing fun for the whole family in the Pitztal valley in Tirol
Finding the perfect spot for family skiing can be quite a challenge. Small children want to go tobogganing, youngsters want to practice new jumps in the swowpark, and the parents are looking for a varied terrain for recreational skiing. The Hochzeiger skiing area in Jerzens is one of the most snow-sure areas in the Alps and offers fun for the whole family.
Children are well looked after in the ski school Hochzeiger-Pitztal, where they spend fun-filled days building igloos and snowmen, following animal tracks in the snow and much more. Of course the little ones can learn how to ski, or they can slide down the mountain on sliding plates. The parents can go skiing on their own, knowing their children are well-cared-for.
Hotel Andy is just a few minutes walking distance from the valley station of the Hochzeiger cable car. The Pitztal Glacier & Rifflsee ski resorts are just 30 minutes away. Every day you can pick your favourite skiing area. Owners of a valid ski pass can take the free shuttle bus to the Pitztal Glacier and back.
