"It allowed us the flexibility to go to a resort of our choice while enjoying the advantages of one to one tuition. Rupert was extremely helpful, spoke perfect English and my kids were so enthusiastic after each lesson it made the cost of the lessons worth the money. Would definitely make a point of going to this resort and booking Rupert again. Could not recommend him highly enough. Would like to add that more advertising in the UK about this service should be encouraged as it's such a brilliant service. I would"

"We had a great day ice climbing with Gernot! The activities were well planned for our skill level and we had a lot of fun. I would suggest to make sure you have the correct shoes for the climbing. We ended up in our ski boots because our hiking shoes turned out to be not stiff enough."

Learn to ski in Bad Hofgastein


Bad Hofgastein is a small but lively ski resort in the southern part of the district of St. Johann im Pongau, in the Austrian state of Salzburg. Together with the nearby towns Bad Gastein and Dorfgastein, it constitutes the ski alliance Gasteinertal which is again part of the gigantic ski alliance Ski Amadé. By car, the journey to the ski resort around Bad Hofgastein takes about 1h when departing from Salzburg, while it takes approximately 2.5h from Innsbruck.

Bad Hofgastein is the historic centre of the Gastein Valley and represents the ideal starting point for the exploration of the largest connected skiing area of the Gastein Valley: the skiing area Schlossalm - Angertal - Stubnerkogel. While the slopes of the Hohen Scharte (2300m) are suited to experienced skiers, beginners and families can spend a wonderful skiing day under perfect conditions on the Schlossalm (2050m). A special highlight at the Schlossalm is the 10km-long downhill run to Bad Hofgastein with a 1500m difference in altitude.

Likewise, at the foot of the Schlossalm lies the Angertal Valley. Here, the ski schools in Bad Hofgastein have created a paradise for beginners, for both young and old. The so-called Skizentrum Angertal is situated between the practice lift Judau, the valley station of the gondola lift Kaserebenbahn and the gondola lift Angertalbahn. The large practice areas offer perfect conditions for the acquisition and consolidation of basic skiing techniques. That is also why the Skizentrum Angertal usually serves as meeting point for beginners lessons.

Ski schools in Bad Hofgastein offer lessons for children from the age of 3 upwards. The youngest beginners take their first steps on skis in the Miniclub, where making snowmen and having snowball fights are also part of the ski lessons.

From 4 years of age beginners practice in the Gasti Snow Park, the home of the ski-loving mascot of the Gastein Valley. The Kinderland extends over an area of more than 10 000m². Several magic carpets, a ski carousel, various obstacles and figures are used by the children to practice basic skiing techniques. Even mogul and slalom slopes are provided. Moreover, ski schools in Bad Hofgastein particularly emphasise the communication of rules for correct and safe behaviour on the slopes.

How do we find offers in our language?

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.
