FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions Ski-School:

Where is the assembly point for Group Courses?
The Assembly Point is between the ski school building and the lift building.

When do I pay for the Ski Course?
The easiest way to pay for the courses is to book and pay online. Take your printed-out booking straight to the assembly point and save yourself time and stress in the morning. The courses can also be reserved and bought directly at the Ski School where you will be given a ticket. This you will give to the organiser at the Assembly Point.

Can we rent equipment with you?
Yes, everything all under one roof! You can also reserve your equipment on line, again saving yourselves time on the day.

Is the Ski Pass included in the price?
No, Skipasses are bought separately. You can go to the following website for further information on this: zugspitze.de/de/winter/preise/garmisch-classic/skifahrer

Do complete beginner children need a ski pass?
When we have enough snow in the valley, we have our own Children’s slopes down below. The kids don’t pay for the use of this whilst taking a course with us. If there is not enough snow in the valley, the kids will need a “Kinderland Pass” to enable them to use the beginner slopes on top. You can buy these at the Ski School too.

As a complete beginner adult, do I need a ski pass?
Generally, we take beginner adults up the mountain for their lessons. The beginner slopes were improved last year and are optimal for all beginners. It will be necessary to by the Kinderland Pass also for adults.

I’ve decided that I would like to turn my Group Course into a Private Course. Is this possible?
If there is a Private Instructor free at the requested time, there will be no problem changing over. You will just have to pay the difference in price.

Where do I meet my Private Instructor?
Generally, directly in the Ski School. If you have an Instructor booked later in the day and are already up the mountain, we can arrange a meeting place for you.

I’m too late, what happens now?
When possible, we will try to connect you to your group, but the time lost will not be made up. We can’t promise that this will happen as some groups may have already left for the slopes etc.
If you have booked a private course, it’s important to be on time as the time lost cannot be made up as in High season, the instructor will have his next student directly after you.

How long in advance do I have to book my Ski Course?
You can book a group lesson up to 24 hours before. If you make a last-minute booking, we cannot promise that there will be availability at the time you request. Holiday times are particularly full and it’s advised that you book in good time.

What happens if I want to have lessons in quieter times in the season?
If there are too few participants the following times are applicable:
1 person – 90 minutes
2 people – 120 minutes
3 people – 150 minutes
From 4 people – the full 3 hours.

How many people are in a Group Lesson?
This depends on ability and age. Generally we try to stick to the following rule but in very busy times we cant guarantee this 100%
Beginners – 6-8 people
Advanced – children 8-10 people
Adults 8-11 people

From what age can children take Ski or Snowboard courses?
Experience shows us that children over 4 years old have the right coordination and ability to learn the necessary movements on skis.
6 years is the optimal age for snowboarders. We offer “Zwergelkurse” or A Tots course for 3 year olds. In this, it is not intended to teach the children to break or turn but to have fun in the snow. These courses take place down in the valley, where conditions allow.

What languages do your Ski Instructors speak?
Generally the group courses are in German. Nearly all instructors speak English and can teach bilingually. We can offer other languages such as English, Russian, French, Italian, Spanish and Dutch for private lessons.
