Learning to ski on the easy practice pistes in PillerseeTal
Playfully taking your first swings in the snow and then using the magic carpets or button lifts for a comfortable ride back up. On the nursery slopes in PillerseeTal, children have the opportunity to try their hands at all things snow and skiing. The practice lifts in Fieberbrunn, Waidring and on Buchensteinwand offer special practice areas, on which first-time skiers will feel right at home. Concerned parents can easily view the goings-on on the nursery slopes, which are also easy to get to. The ski schools in PillerseeTal also offer practice lessons for children and adults. And they don’t lack in fun, either!

Practice area in Fieberbrunn
Fieberbrunn offers its holiday guests not one practice lift, but two. Rights by the valley station of the cable car Streuböden the Obingleiter is waiting for first-time skiers. A button lift makes for an easy trip uphill and the way back down into the valley is over flat meadows. For all advanced schussboomers, a somewhat steeper slope is also waiting to be negotiated. The second nursery slope is located at the mid-station Streuböden. Here, too, a button lift provides easy transportation uphill. On the downhill run, a mogul training run also awaits and for the bigger skiers a couple of jump elements. Right next to the button lift Zillstatt you can also tackle the somewhat more difficult button lift Gatterl. But for this you do need some practice for the lift ride.
