Exploring the world of mountains: Galtür Silvapark is a family-friendly concept setting new standards. Toddling around in the 'Zwergerlwelt' (Kids’ World) one day, heading off to explore the fairytale forest the next day, then making turns on the superb slopes or performing daring jumps in the 'Actionpark' the day after. In Galtür, young and not-so-young winter sports fans learn fast. And Silvapark is the secret of this success. This season, Galtür’s winter sports area will be transformed into a sophisticated and action-packed theme park once more, with six different zones and levels of difficulty. A unique concept for a unique winter sports resort. The melodious-sounding Silvapark is a concept that is bringing a new dimension to the world of winter sports – especially for families. The ski area is divided into special zones, allowing every ski or snowboard fan to have fun, to learn or simply to try out something new. In six sectors altogether, the experts from Galtür have created more than twelve park stations catering to all demands. The idea: to make enjoyment of skiing synonymous with successful learning. There is a perfect area for every level with interesting assignments and challenges. As a special service, Silvapark provides guides to give tips and assistance to all those who are keen to learn. Experiencing and learning step by step – perfect fun for all the family, Silvapark is aimed at children and young people in particular. While the 'Zwergerlwelt' (Kids’ World) is reserved for the very smallest, slightly older children will love the attractions of the 'Abenteuerland' (Adventure Land), including the 'Märchenwald' (Fairytale Forest), witches’ hut, easy mogul runs and steep curves. The 'Actionpark' is designed with youngsters in mind. But the young-at-heart are welcome to put their skills to the test on the jumps and rails as well. The exciting skiing arena is rounded off by the Heldenreich' (Heroes Empire) for off-piste experiences and novelty runs, as well as the 'Pistenparadies' (Piste Paradise) with its 40 kilometres of well-groomed slopes. Things take a different turn in the 'High & Nordic' sector, which boasts over 70 kilometres of cross-country skiing tracks – some at altitudes of over 2,000 metres – as well as snowshoeing trails and winter hiking paths. A real highlight: the world’s first snow safari. Explore the huge variety offered by the winter sports region on the world’s first snow safari. Take a ride on a snowcat from Galtür to Zeinisjoch, then down to the Montafon Valley and back to Galtür by way of Bielerhöhe. For a spectacular and romantic evening, try out the night skiing on a floodlit slope, which covers two or more kilometres. A varied weekly programme is open to anyone who wants to join in, with Indian days, games, a speed run and children’s ski races. But Galtür also has a different side. In spite of all the action, it has ultimately remained what it always was: a Tyrolean mountain village full of charm and tradition in a high alpine landscape.

Visitor Reviews of Galtur-Silvapark
Tirolerhund from United Kingdom writes:
Did a day here in early March, it's high and snow sure. The sun was shining, the snow was fresh and everyone was heading in the opposite direction for a day in Ischgl. Result: deserted pistes, perfect grippy powder and that increasingly rare occurrence: no ice! It was without doubt the best day's skiing I've had in approx. 20 years!
The ski area is compact with good lifts, including a new gondola opening up an extended black run. Also good selection of reds and perfect for young families.
For hard core skiers there's only enough to keep you happy for 2 or 3 days, so you'll want the valley pass which provides full access to Ischgl, Kappl and See.
Subsistence on the mountain: excellent value.
Didn't sample the night life but, all in all, a highly recommended resort.
