"The lessons were extremely good. After the first day we were already able to go down the "real" slopes and control our ski turns. The teacher was extremely friendly and very very energetic. And as "Mathias"(not sure about the correct spelling) would say: "We are going to ski in a snake... the most beautiful snake in 'whole' Austria.""

"As an intermediate rider who had never had any lessons before, this lesson completely transformed my riding. By going back to the basics, then running through drills to expand my skills and correct my faults, I was a much more confident and fluent rider!"

Ski Schools in Kaprun

Learn to ski in Kaprun


The ski resort Kaprun is located at the foot of the famous Kitzsteinhorn in the National Park Hohe Tauern. It takes about 1.5h by car from Salzburg and about 2h to 2.5h from Innsbruck and Munich to reach the ski resort. At an altitude of 3203m, the Kitzsteinhorn is not only Austria's first, but also Salzburg's only glacier ski area. First opened in 1965, the ski resort is now part of the ski alliance Zell am See - Kaprun. Both places, Zell am See and Kaprun, are connected via ski buses and offer a wide range of slopes.

Kaprun offers direct access to the training area on the Lechnerberg (835m), the family- and beginner-friendly slopes on the Maiskogel (1730m) as well as to the challenging pistes of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. If you' re looking for a real challenge, try skiing down the Black Mamba, the steepest track of the Kitzsteinhorn.

While experienced skiers love to ski on the slopes of the Kitzsteinhorn, beginners and families prefer to practice their skills on the training area at the Lechnerberg or the mostly blue slopes of the Maiskogel. The latter also has its own training piste for beginners, the Maisi practice slope right next to the Maisi lift. The ski schools in Kaprun usually meet the beginners right at the ski school office. The meeting point for slightly advanced groups is usually at the mountain station of the Gletscherjet 1.

The training area on the Lechnerberg is perfect for young skiers and therefore, most of the beginners lessons for kids take place there. The ski schools in Kaprun offer ski lessons for kids from the age of 3 years on and a ski kindergarten, BOBO's Bambini Club, for the younger ones. In the afternoon, it's all about fun and games in BOBO's Bambini Club. For the older kids, BOBO’s Kinderland on the Lechnerberg offers an exciting pirate ship, an iceberg and a magic carpet.

For those preferring a ski enthusiastic dinosaur, DINO’S KIDSCLUB is the place to be - 4500m² of pure fun. A ski carousel, a magic carpet, a Pinocchio lift and XXXL figures turn the ski lessons into an unforgettable adventure with a cuddly dinosaur.

That’s special about ski lessons in Kaprun


Although most of the slopes on the Kitzsteinhorn are of medium difficulty, the blue slopes of the glacier ski area, such as the Rettenwand and the Alpincenter slopes, are perfect for beginners and families. The ski schools in Kaprun usually offer their lessons including ski rental and lunch care for children.

As a glacier ski area, Kaprun has the great advantage of an early season start (October) and perfect skiing conditions until well into the summer months.

From the Kitzsteinhorn you can see the Kaprun valley, the Zeller See and Austria's highest mountain peaks.

How do we find offers in our language?

Under the menu item "Language" you can select a desired language. Afterwards only offers will be shown where this language is available.

When should we book?

During the holiday weeks, ski and snowboard courses are usually fully booked. In order to make sure that there is still a place available in the desired ski or snowboard course, the motto is: the sooner the better.

How do we find our appropriate experience level?

Next to the menu item "Experience level" you will find a description of the individual experience levels. If you're still not sure, you don't need to worry. Simply choose the experience level that best suits your abilities. Before the first lesson of a group course, ski schools will assess your abilities so that you can be placed in the right group. In any case, private instructors will take your abilities into account on an individual basis.

How do we find offers including equipment?

All offers including equipment are marked with the inscription "Ski rental included". If you find the inscription "Ski rental optional" you can book the equipment for this offer. You will find offers including equipment faster if you select the filter "Ski rental including" under the menu item "Popular options". Depending on the provider, an offer including equipment contains: skis, ski poles, ski boots and helmet. You will find a detailed list of the included rental items in the respective offer description.

There is no offer including equipment, where can we alternatively rent equipment?

In a ski resort there is almost without exception the possibility to rent winter sports equipment. If you book via CheckYeti, you will receive discounts from our partner Skiset, where you can conveniently reserve your equipment online.

How many participants are usually in a group?

This depends on the ski school. Some ski schools have a maximum number of participants per group. You can find this information in the descriptions of the offers.

At what age can children ski or snowboard?

There is no fixed age limit here. Supported by specially trained children's ski instructors, children can already learn to ski playfully at kindergarten age. Depending on the children's level of motoric and social development, the ideal starting age is between 4 and 5 years. Occasionally there are children who can already learn to ski at the age of 3 1/2 years.

How many days should the lessons last for our children?

During the holiday weeks, children's ski courses for beginners usually start on Sunday or Monday. The program is designed in such a way that the best learning results are achieved when your children take part in the ski course throughout the week. So they don't miss the final event (race, etc.) and experience a great week with their group. For advanced children the learning success usually kicks in on the third day.

Is it better to put our child in a group lesson or a private tuition?

The group lessons are generally recommended for beginners. Learning together with peers is more fun. The children are not constantly in the focus and have the possibility to catch their breath between the individual exercises, while the other children are on it. In order not to underchallenge highly talented children, a private ski instructor is recommended.

Can we join our child with a private instructor?

Yes, that's possible. Some providers even offer special family offers. Otherwise, you can simply book a private instructor for children or adults and inform the ski school after booking that you would like to go together.
