Questiones and answers about lessons for children
From 4 years. For 4 year olds we recommend a trial day. It could turn out that it is still too early. The biological age does not always equal the chronological age.
As a rule, fees are only refunded upon presentation of a doctor’s certificate (illness, injury). However, it is also possible to book a trial day, especially for the little ones. In any case we strive to find a fitting solution for everyone.
Yes, the ski instructors help the children with this.
Parents can watch the course, however the lesson should not be interrupted. Often it is better for the kids when parents are not directly around the practice area.

The children are assigned to groups first and foremost based on their ability and age. If your kids or the kids’ friends have the same ability, please let us know at the time of registration and also at the start of the course and we will do our best to accommodate your request. If children do not ski at the same level of ability, the child who skis better has to watch out for those of lesser ability.
We try to divide the groups or make them so homogeneous that the ski instructor can create a methodically well-structured lesson. The group size varies between 3 and 9 children. It also happens that some groups consist of 5 and 6 children and in absolute exceptional cases of 10 children.
None of the children beginning need ski poles. For more advanced children, the rule for the first day is: kids who have already learned to ski with poles bring these with them on the first day. Kids that never learned to ski with poles come without them. For the following course days, the instructor gives you further information
Questiones and answers about lessons for adults

At the time of registration in the ski school office, a general grouping of beginners (first time on skis) and advanced skiers (attended one or more ski courses) is done. As a general rule: those who have beginner skills (safe braking, swerving) can move to the slope, that is the practice slope, while all others stay in the beginners’ area.

½ hour before the start of the course (9:30 a.m.)
The adults are also divided into groups of beginners (first time on skis) and advanced (from snow plough skiers to skilled skiers), whereupon advanced skiers are divided into different skill levels depending on their abilities. Based on our experience, the groups are between 3 and 7 participants.
