Family Skiing in Austria with Esprit Family Ski Holidays

Offering Esprit families the two most sought after elements for a family skiing in Austria; a range of slopes to suit all levels and a warm welcome to ski families. Renowned for their high standard of guest care, up-to-date lift systems and good snow making facilities, our chosen resorts are hugely popular choices for family skiing in Austria.

Our Esprit Classic Childcare offers parents a completely seamless service and means being able to leave your accommodation after breakfast to head for the first lift, only needing to return after the last one shuts. We look after you children completely throughout the ski day if you wish. For the kids it means non-stop fun with english speaking staff and children!

The traditional appeal of Austria has not been lost in it’s development of modern ski resorts. The villages are attractive and picturesque and newly built ski chalets blend into the old with style and charm. Tree-lined slopes are attractive to newcomers wishing to ski the plentiful open bowls of gently undulating terrain, a delight for the perfect family skiing in Austria.

Our two resorts of St Anton and Obergurgl offer the very best family skiing, both with fantastic traditional Austrian ski chalets:

Obergurgl: An attractive Tyrolean village at high altitude, 1,930m, with an enviable snow record stretching from November to May. With no through traffic in the resort centre and spectacular scenery, Obergurgl is a firm favourite with Esprit ski families.

St Anton: One of the world’s top ten resorts and biggest ski area, St Anton is a must for family skiing in Austria and for those seeking tradition and state-of-the-art lifts. Our family ski chalets are based in the Nasserein area where recent developments to children’s ski areas have made it an ideal choice for your family skiing holiday in Austria.


At 2,020m, Kuhtai is Austria's highest resort and a gem, with ski in/ski out accommodation, spectacular scenery, and so convenient to reach, only 35km from Innsbruck. For two Easter peak dates only, Esprit are offering accommodation and Esprit-exclusive ski classes for 5-12 year olds, in the locally-run four star superior Hotel Mooshaus, which sits right next to the slopes and has extensive leisure facilities.

Obergurgl is one of Austria’s most famous and most sought-after ski resorts, and deservedly so – especially for Esprit family ski holidays! Set high at the end of the picturesque Ötz Valley, the village centre benefits from having no through traffic at all, and the ski area boasts an enviable snow record stretching normally from November right through until May.

St. Anton

The Nasserein area of St Anton is the perfect location for family skiing. Two of the main children’s ski areas are convenient to our chalets - one at the foot of the gondola and one at the top. The Pepi Gabl Chalet is just next to the gondola and only 50m or so from the end of the Nasserein home run.
