Starting with the convenient and comfortable ascent aids and the perfectly groomed, wide slopes to the children's and snow bear countries and the optimal support from the ski school and ski rental, to family-friendly accommodation and child-friendly restaurants.
Children can make their first turns in one of the three large practice areas on the mountain (middle station / Kanzelhöhe, Bergeralm, Klösterle / Arriach). Always with you is the Gerlitzen Bino-Bear, which motivates the little ones and dances and plays with them. While parents enjoy the slopes, pedagogically trained and certified children's ski instructors support the children at their beginnings.
All these factors led to the Gerlitzen being the only ski area in Carinthia to be certified as a particularly suitable ski area for (re) beginners with a focus on families with children as part of the initiative of the Austrian cable cars.
On the Gerlitzen Alpe, the little ski stars of tomorrow learn in a completely informal and playful way what it means to stand on two skis. There are three large, optimal practice areas and also the ski school with attached ski rental and child care, as well as three great children's and snow bear countries for the little ones, which are directly connected to each practice area.
There the popular mascot, the Gerlitzen-Bino-Bear, supports the little ones with their beginnings. Every day during the winter season, the Gerlitzen Bino-Bear comes to the children's and snow bear country, plays and dances with them. Every Friday during the winter season, the little ones can put their skills to the test in the big ski and snowboard race on the Moserhang at the middle station / Kanzelhöhe. With timekeeping and award ceremony.
