Learn to ski in Flachau
Flachau is one of the most famous ski resorts in Salzburg and the hometown of none other than Austria's most famous ski racer, Hermann Maier. The career of the Olympic and World Champion started right here on the slopes of the Grießenkareck. No wonder the challenging "Hermann Maier World Cup Run", on which the big Audi FIS World Cup Ladies Night Slalom takes place every year, is located on the 1991 m high mountain.
Flachau has its own exit on the Tauern motorway and can be reached in only 1h from Salzburg and almost 1.5h from Villach. Together with the neighbouring towns of Wagrain and St. Johann, the family-friendly ski resort is also known as "Snow Space Salzburg" or simply as the “Best of Mountains”. Ski fans can enjoy perfectly prepared pistes as well as varied tracks for every taste and every level of experience. Snow Space Salzburg is also one of five ski resorts that have joined forces to become the huge ski alliance "Ski amadé": 1 ski pass for 25 ski resorts and 760 km of slopes.
Most of the slopes on the Grießenkareck are easy or moderate. The ski schools in Flachau offer ski motivated children and beginners the chance to practise the basic skiing techniques on training areas near the Piggyjet and the Dinojet lift. The meeting places for beginners lessons are usually located near the valley station of the Space Jet chairlift which is next to the restaurant Dampfkessel, at the valley station of the Star Jet or directly next to the mountain station of the Achterjet.
Children from the age of 2 years can already join the ski kindergarten or the Bobo Mini Club. In the morning the kids slowly get to grips with skiing, while in the afternoon they will play around with the other kids. The ski resort has numerous areas for ski enthusiastic children. Magic carpets and ski carousels will help the kids to learn skiing and boost their confidence. At the end of the beginners lessons, the youngsters will be able to ski down the blue slopes of the ski resort without any problems. Bobo the ski-loving Penguin lives close to the mountain station of the Achterjet. Fans of Bobo the Penguin will find the professional skier either on the Bobo meadow or in the Bambini Land, where he will be giving some tips to the up-and-coming talents.
