Learn to ski in Feldberg


The ski resort of Feldberg is located at an altitude of 1277m within the Baden-Württemberg region of southern Germany. Rising up to 1493m, the Feldberg mountain is the highest peak within the area but the local pistes are distributed on the Feldberg plus two other mountains: the Seebuck (1450m) and the Grafenmatt (1380m). With a total of 26 km of slopes, the ski area is not large, but it is particularly versatile with 7km of blue runs, 14km of red runs and 5km of black runs.

The well-organised resort of Feldberg is an ideal destination for beginners and families with children. The Seebuck slopes are ideal for skiers who want to practice their newly-learned skills and there is a range of gentle, wide slope that are ideal for beginners’ practice.

Even skiers who already have some experience can find challenging runs in the Feldberg area: The Grafenmatt mountain has several excellent reds that are easily accessible by lift directly from the village. Also on the Grafenmatt is an official World Cup run, black slope no. 14, plus the longest run within the resort - the 3km Rothausabfahrt.

Ski lessons for beginners in Feldberg


The ski schools in Feldberg have a wide range of beginner lessons for adults and children from age 4yrs. Group lessons for adults generally last 4,5hrs per day and many lesson packages have either equipment hire included or optional, which is an added bonus for first-time skiers.

The meeting point for lessons is directly by the relevant ski school. Lesson groups are firstly formed based on the skiers’ age and ability. The number of students per group differs per ski school, but most ski schools in Feldberg work with small groups of a maximum of 7 to 8 participants.

Beginners first learn the basic skiing techniques of the snowplough, glide and and braking on the flattest learner slopes. By the end of the first day, most students are ready to go up with the ski lift and practice their newly-learned skills on pistes with a slight incline.

Skiers with a little previous experience are taken by the ski schools in Feldberg directly to the blue slopes. If the primary skiing techniques are already well-established, lessons focus on the introduction of parallel skiing.

How do we find offers for our desired date?

Under the menu item "Select course date" in the upper left corner of the page you can select a desired start date. At the top of the search results you will find the offers for the desired start date. Below follow offers in a similar period.

How do we find group lessons or private instructors?

Group courses are marked with "Group". You can search specifically for group courses by selecting the "Group" filter under the "Category" menu item. 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.
