Private instructors

From choosing the right equipment to your personal daily schedule – your private ski instructor will design every day according to your wishes, pick you up from the hotel and take you back again. He might even accompany you all the way to the bar. Because enjoying a little drink together is the perfect end to a perfect day’s skiing.

Group ski courses

These courses are very popular and are currently experiencing something of a renaissance. One of the reasons may be the charming wit of the experienced ski instructors. Or perhaps it’s because young riders & racers are offered a fantastic range of courses such as “young & ride” and “race”.

Snowboard courses

These courses are held in small groups and ensure rapid success. The wonderful slopes of the Arlberg provide a great testing ground.


Courses for children

Ski school director Martin Kefer places much importance on a playful approach to learning to ski. Specially trained children’s instructors and their fun “ski courses with soul” guarantee success. Just how successful the children are can be tested in the weekly children’s races. Prices include cups, medals and cuddly toys, and the winner can look forward to a pair of Fischer World Cup racing skis. On request, there is a lunchtime supervision service for your little ones and a special shuttle service takes them safely and comfortably from the hotel to the meeting place and back.
