Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Salzburgerland - activities for non-skiers/older family

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
We're (family of 4 including a 14 and 11 year old) heading out to Salzburgerland for 2 weeks over Xmas and New Year to ski. This year my parents (mid-late 70s, non-skiers) are flying out to Salzburg for New Year and joining us in the apartment (something about wanting to see us over the festive period...). They are happy to do short walks, 30-60 mins, but don't feel they can manage more.

We've agreed we will only ski mornings when they are with us, and we'll be driving down in our 7 seat Volvo, so lots of room to take all the family (+ skis) around the region. So my question is what should we be planning to do as a family. Some ideas were:
- husky sledding (although not sure if the oldies will manage) in Bad Gastein
- thermes (e.g. Therme Amade)

We're based near Radstadt if helpful

Would love to hear your best ideas!

@ma94jcg, Visit one of the salt mines e.g Hallein https://www.salzwelten.at/en/hallein/prices-opening-times/

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Walk by the lake in Zell and tea at the grand hotel or cafe mosshammer in the main square. Krimmel waterfalls (frozen). Viewing platform on the kitzsteinhorn. The elf village at lengau, following a morning at Saalbach? Train or drive to Salzburg. Make sure you get the superski pass and then you can ski near to whichever afternoon activity you are going to do.

Wonder if they would be up for a sledge down after a musical hut night. Kooky's dad still managed to lose sleds due to crashing in his 70s snowHead

@ma94jcg, Have a look at our Facebook Page @theredandwhiteskicompany. We posted a number of non-skiing activities last season, including those mentioned already plus Austrian Curling, snowshoeing and a few others. Ice Skating in Salzburg city can keep the teenagers busy while the oldies do culture.
