My traces in the snow
A week full of adventures, games and fun for our younger guests
In collaboration with the Alpin ski school in Hopfgarten we offer our young guests a week of skiing lessons including an attractive supporting programme where skiing can be learned in a playful way.
A whole day out on the slopes can be quite a challenge even for grown-ups. In order to make sure that children don’t lose their enthusiasm for the sport, skiing lessons take turns with fun activities in the snow.
|Day 1:||Our first traces together on the slope|
|We get to know our ski instructors and the rest of the skiing class. Find new friends and make our first steps on the slopes.Off we go!|
|Day 2:||Exciting treasure hunt|
|Apart from learning the basics we set off on a treasure hunt, learn how to read maps and traces and sharpen our sense of direction. Eventually we’ll be rewarded with a mysterious treasure.|
|Day 3:||American Indian Day|
|American Indians have always been famous for being the best readers of tracks. Together we travel back to their time. In the tipi we adorn ourselves with plumes and Indian face paint. Afterwards we play great games, sing and dance. At the end we will roast marshmallows over the open fire.|
|Day 4:||"Safety-Day" - become a mountain rescuer for one day|
|We learn the most important rules of conduct on the slopes which we have to follow when discovering the ski area with our parents. What do I have to do when meeting someone injured? How do I make the accident scene safe? (for older kids: how to build a rescue sledge and how to use an avalanche transceiver)|
|Day 5:||Final Race|
|The grand finale of our skiing course. We take part in a ski race and show the audience what great things we learned in the last few days. Everyone will receive a small gift at the prize-giving ceremony.|
|Monday 3:30 p.m.: tobogganing for the whole family in Hopfgarten|
|Let’s end a perfect winter day with a funny toboggan ride. Together we ride with the cable car in Hopfgarten up to the Hohe Salve. After a lovely snack at the mountain hut we ride on our toboggans back down to the valley.|
|Wednesday 4:00 p.m.: torchlight hike with kids in Hopfgarten|
|Together we discover the snow-covered winter landscape around Hopfgarten, set off to read traces and chase away the darkness with our torchlights.|
