Ski Schools & Ski Hire

Highly trained ski instructors enjoy passing their knowledge on to willing students. Children learn playfully to take their first steps on skis in the snow. Adults are trained intensively from day one and, by no later than their third day on the slopes, experience their first major breakthrough when they glide down the slopes as if they had been skiing all their lives. Even experienced skiers can benefit from a little instruction, maybe by joining a ski guide to try free-skiing in back country terrain, or hone existing techniques and safe skiing, thereby increasing their passion and enthusiasm for the sport. Those who prefer to travel light during the winter holidays can hire the latest skis & boards from top sports stores in the region at great conditions.

Spoilt for choice – no less than 7 ski schools in the Mayrhofen-Hippach ski resort offer ski and snowboard lessons at reasonable prices.
