Gentle slopes with just enough gradient, wide open pistes with plenty of space to practice on and a lot of understanding about what beginners need makes Tirol a top destination. There is a great choice of ski resorts across the region, which are ideal for families, complete beginners or for so-called lapsed skiers, who are returning to the slopes after a few years. The regions of Pitztal, Wilder Kaiser, Ski Jewel Alpbachtal Wildschönau, Kitzbühel Alps, Stubai and Imst have some special packages and incentives to help beginners and improvers get into and back into skiing and including accommodation, lift pass, ski hire and ski lessons. Complete beginners are well looked after in small groups with a maximum of seven people learning together.

Money Back Guarantee
A special programme designed exclusively for lapsed skiers is being offered in the Wilder Kaiser region. With a "money-back guarantee", this offer provides a gentle launch back into fun on the slopes. If you are returning to the sport and really don‘t like it or can’t continue for other reasons then you can return your ski passes and ski equipment and get the money back on the unused portion of the package.
Fun on and off the slopes
The regions of Pitztal, Wilder Kaiser, Kitzbühel Alps, Imst, Stubai and Ski Jewel Alpbachtal Wildschönau offer those coming back to skiing plenty of additional activities off the slopes. For example, in the Ski Jewel Alpbachtal Wildschönau, everyone will receive a Guest Card, entitling them to a host of activities and leisure facilities at a free or reduced cost. This card entitles those in Alpbach to really experience the winter magic in Tirol with free guided snow shoe walks, free torch light walks and free ice skating.
The Kitzbühel Alps offer an inclusive package, which goes that extra mile, where the ski instructor comes to pick his guests up at the hotel and accompanies them to the ski hire shop. Families are well cared for too and in Imst children receive free ski school lessons and under 7s are entitled to a free lift pass. In the Stubai Valley there is no cost for children’s ski hire, if the parents are also renting too and children under 10 receive a free lift pass.
