Children's paradise

Children under 5.99 years are free of charge.

Children up to 8.99 years free of charge when purchasing a 6-day pass (weekly passes - not valid on season tickets) of a parent with SaastalCard.

Information

  • Decisive for the children and youth fare is the date of birth (not the year of birth).
  • When purchasing a parent's online ticket (6-day pass, regular price), an identity card and the valid SaastalCard must be presented at the ticket office. Afterwards, a free ski pass will be issued to the child (check of the identity card).
  • Discounts and rebates are not cumulative.

No matter if beginner or pro: on our Funslope at Sandiger Boden, even more  fun is inevitable for everybody.

It starts with a speedboost, which brings the traveling speed to funslope temperature. You continue on sweeping waves and dynamic steep curves. Now it's getting serious, because the Slopecop is following you: Armed with a laser pistol, it measures the speed and gives funny comments. The fast ride continues in a spiral, through a tunnel and then straight through to a final jump. Two integrated photo spots catch the most beautiful moments.

group ski lesson

We teach according to the guidelines of the Swiss Snow League and offer group lessons at all levels.

​Your child is taught the right technique and safety, with the emphasis on play and fun. The groups consist of max. 9 participants. This guarantees learning success.

Snow fleas (from 3 years)

In a safe area we get used to the skis, make our first attempts at walking and skiing and learn to brake. Afterwards we continue on to the nearby Wonder Carpet.

Break in heated room. Sunday trial day possible.
