BIG Family Action Days
Date: 26 Feb. – 27 Feb. 2022
Venue: Eisgrat mountain station, 2,900m
Place: 6167, Neustift im Stubaital
Topics: Family Camp, freestyle skiing, avalanche awareness, freeskiing, snow park action
At the BIG FAMILY Action Days on 26 and 27 February 2022 on the Stubai Glacier, certified mountain and ski guides as well as park coaches trained by Freeski Austria will show you how kickers and rails as well as deep snow won’t have to be shunned by anyone.
During the BIG FAMILY Action Days, children from 10 years and their parents can make new skiing and snowboarding experiences with pros in the park and/or in powder snow during a whole weekend. They will learn the required techniques and will also be taught what they have to know about safety and equipment.
Learning cool tricks, making awesome jumps and leaving one’s tracks in the backcountry are just as much fun with your mum and/or dad as with friends. Whether you spend a day in the park or powder or want to enjoy the whole weekend of the BIG FAMILY Action Days, you will be introduced to new adventures.
