On the slopes

The Schneebärenland (Polar Bear County) encompasses five distinct winter sports areas in the snowy mountains of Upper Styria. One ski pass covers a total of 120 km of ski runs, all within easy reach of our selected accommodation based near the Riesneralm mountain. Our groups start their week on the Riesneralm mountain where 30 km of wide-ranging runs are waiting for them. The Riesneralm has recently invested heavily in their lift and snow-making systems, making this the perfect area for school ski trip groups. A dedicated beginners’ zone means that beginners can find their ski legs in peace, while confident skiers can embrace the new Cross-Ride-Track and Freeride Park. All our student ski trip groups have free-of-charge access to a special training area where they can measure their speed and film themselves. During the week, the ski school will take you to Kaiserau, Loser, Tauplitz or the Planneralm to get more kilometres under your skis.


Our student ski trip groups are based in the village of Aigen with plenty of evening activities on their doorstep. Enjoy ice-skating and ice-curling on the Putterer Lake or relax with a hot chocolate in the Loch Ness café. For a more unusual evening, arrange a visit to the local husky dog camp or enjoy a torchlit snow-shoe walk on the Planneralm. Bowling and swimming are a short drive away.
