Snowboarders and skiers together or seperate?

In general we avoid to instruct skiers and snowboarders together in one group. 

Exceptions?
• Yes. With private instructor only. Please contact us!

Why do we not recommend to instruct, coach or guide snowboarders
and skiers together?

• Showing and demonstrating of the correct movements by the instructor is
   important for the students
   - The instructor is not able to demonstrate both sports at the same time!
• Snowboard/ski student have different demands on slopes or freeride-terrain
• The optimal tuition and the safety of all participants can not be guaranteed
   anymore...

Group Division - How do i find the right group?

Group Devision - Organization of Groups:

The groups are mainly devided according to the abilities/levels of the participants.
Before we start organizing the groups we try to find out what ski or snowboard
level you are by interviewing you.

On Sunday we give everyone the chance to get their ski legs back and to
get used to new equipement on easy slopes before deviding all participants
into the suiting group.

In case you are starting during the week we will devide you to the right group
after finding out your riding level.

Your group is too fast or too slow for you? - You can change group any time!

Often we get questioned whether siblings or friends can join the same group,
although they have different riding skills. In general it is possible:
- the better riders join the group of the weakest one as long as the maximal
  group size is not exceeded.

Division of children groups:
Similar to the organization of the groups for adults and youths but we put even
more focus on finding out the riding level and physical abilities of the kids. 
Its uncomplicated to change group as groups with similar riding levels often
go to the same area in the ski resort.

We plead the parents to equipe their children adequately and to make sure the
kids use proper and safe ski and snowboard gear!

Informations about the correct equipment and how to dress

"In the mountains there´s never bad weather - just bad equipment!"
What should you focus on when it comes to the equipment?

Clothing:

You should wear good underwear that keeps the body dry and warm

Pants and Jacket should be wind-proof and water-repellent.

"Dress yourself like an Onion":
Depending on the weather you should be warm enough but should not be over-heatet. It seems to be the best to put on several thin layers - then one can take layers on or off. In the mornings it is often very cold but as soon as the sun comes out it gets warm very quickly. To dress like an onion is an advantage in that case! We recommend to bring a little light backpack where unneeded cloths can be stored.

Wrinkle-free ski-socks that are higher than the shoe. Socks should be dry and it is recomendable to put on the socks instantly before putting on the skiboots (condensation) - Just use ONE pair of socks! By wearing more socks you have less space for your feet inside the boot and blood circulation is clammed - which leads to cold feet... 

Protect the throat! Either use a turtleneck-shirt or you utilize a textile collar. A thin scarf is nice to have in case it is very cold windy and snowing.

A close fitting thin hat under the helmet is recomendable and is enjoyed by many. Also so called "storm hats" that cover neck and mouth are very popular.

Warm, water-repellent gloves or mittens.

 

Ski and Snowboard Equipement:

We recommend to rent or buy your equipment at local rental stores or sport shops. - Makes it much more convenient as you can easily change your gear, in case something is not suiting you... Nevertheless, if you still want to utilize the equipement of friends or relatives, make sure to get the euipement and the bindings (obligatory) checked before the lessons start by a professional. Moreover, please make sure that the skis/snowboard is well wachsed and that the edges are not rusty and scratched...
 
Most important: Fitting Boots - aligned to level and age! 

Ski length: chin-high at maximum for children, for beginners up to the chest-hight

Pole length: aprox. the hight of the belly button

Snowboard length: Chest-high

Snowboard width: Not much wider then the sole length

 

Further important equipement items:

Fitting Helmet (obligatory for kids up to 16 years old)

Sunglasses or goggles

Sun protection creme (UV-30) and Cold protection creme (Fat-creme) for cold days
