Volderau

for beginners

Beginners rating -
22
Perfect
Volderau may not be the best choice for beginners due to its limited beginner-friendly infrastructure. The resort lacks a dedicated nursery area and easy-to-use lifts accessible from beginner areas. Additionally, the resort does not offer ski schools or lessons for beginners, making it a challenging environment for those new to the sport.

Intermediates
Perfect
Intermediate skiers will find Volderau to be a suitable destination with a good mix of blue and red pistes. The resort offers a variety of terrains, including the popular blue runs around the Schlick 2000 lift, which are known for their consistent snow conditions. The red runs descending from the Kreuzjochbahn lift provide a more challenging experience, perfect for skiers looking to enhance their skills.

Advanced skiers rating -
Fun
Perfect
Volderau may not be the best fit for advanced skiers seeking adrenaline-pumping challenges. The resort primarily caters to beginners and intermediates, with a majority of its slopes being blue and red. While there are a few black runs, they are not particularly steep or long, and may not provide the level of difficulty that advanced skiers typically crave.

for snowboarders

Snowboarders rating -
Fun
Perfect
Volderau may not be the first choice for snowboarders. The resort lacks dedicated snowparks or freestyle areas, making it less appealing for those looking to practice tricks or jumps. The terrain is more suited for traditional skiing, with a majority of the slopes being intermediate to advanced, offering limited options for snowboarders.

Volderau may not be the first choice for freeriders as it lacks the extensive off-piste terrain found in larger resorts. The resort is more suited to beginners and intermediate skiers, with a focus on groomed runs rather than untouched powder. However, for those who enjoy a quieter, less crowded skiing experience, Volderau can offer a peaceful alternative to the bustling freeride hotspots.
