Learn to ski in Braunlage

Braunlage is the northernmost ski resort in Germany and is situated in the middle of the Harz national park, hence its nickname “Herz im Harz” (“the heart of the Harz”). It is one of the oldest winter sports locations in the country and stretches around the Wurmberg mountain, which is almost 1000m in height. The ski resort is only a rough 3h drive away from Hamburg or Berlin, making it perfect for a long weekend full of skiing fun.

Those who are not yet ready to conquer the Wurmberg mountain can make their first few attempts on skis directly in the town centre. In fact, there is a large training meadow behind the town hall with a beginners’ drag lift. After having gained a little experience there, a ski instructor from one of the ski schools in Braunlage will take you up the Wurmberg mountain. The general meeting points for ski lessons on the Wurmberg mountain are the offices of the ski schools, next to the Hexenritt ski rental shop, or the ski rental shop Ewelt, close to the Rathaus (town hall) cable car and the “Rodelschlepplift”, a lift for bobsleighs.

Young skiing enthusiasts from age 6 upwards can learn to ski with Braunlage’s motivated and empathetic ski instructors. Together with the ski instructors, kids achieve great learning success in short amounts of time. The ski lessons are offered for all levels of experience. The ski schools in Braunlage emphasise correct etiquette on the ski slopes as well as respect for nature. Hence, besides teaching the basics of skiing, the ski schools in Braunlage also make sure beginners learn how to behave properly both on and off the slopes.

Private teachers are marked with the inscription "Private". You can search for private teachers by selecting the "Private" filter under the "Category" menu item.

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.
