Ideal for beginners and intermediates
Modern lift system
Friendly and flexible ski school
Gerlitzen is a small, quiet resort that is incredibly child friendly, making it a great choice for a school ski trip to Austria. Well-groomed runs, cosy mountain huts and the relative rarity of having to queue for lifts make a school ski trip to Gerlitzen a wonderful experience for the whole group. And, despite its small size, it has a great ski pedigree - it's the home of Winter Olympic gold medallist Matthias Mayer.
The 45km of slopes provide great progression with a variety of shorter and longer blues, as well as a good selection of reds. The size of the ski area provides enough variety while also being small enough that teachers can keep track of where all their groups are on the mountain. The ski school are very used to dealing with school groups and are very flexible and accommodating to their specific needs. The gondola is just a 10-minute drive from the hotel.
Very good for intermediate skiers.
