Popular Ski Schools for Garmisch-Classic

103Customer recommendations
"Wonderful experience! The teachers were kind and competent. Our kids finished the class and begged to go on another run. We would recommend them highly. The experience with rental was extremely friendly and there was a shuttle to the waiting location. Come earlier than recommended to pick up ski equipment as it got busy in the morning. (8am should be good). Overall wonderful experience and will be back!"

Ski Lessons for Adults - All Levels

12Customer recommendations
"We had a really good private cross-ski lesson today with Peter as instructor. This was our first time in Garmisch and he offer to pick us up and started the lessons with few practical things. Peter is very professional and good teacher and he used microphone system to talk to us and give advise during the time we spent with him. Brilliant tool to use in teaching. He was also really helpful to assist us to find ski lessons for our family members when he was fully booked himself. We would definitely recommend Peter if you are looking for excellent ski instructor. Linda and Erla"

Ski Schools in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Learn to ski in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

As the largest ski resort in Germany, the Garmisch-Classic ski area is just under an hour's drive away from Munich and stretches over the snow-covered slopes of the Hausberg, the Kreuzeck and the Alpspitze. The Kandahar track on the Kreuzeck is Germany's steepest downhill track with a gradient of almost 92% and rightly makes Garmisch-Partenkirchen one of the most popular venues for the Alpine Ski World Cup.

Beginners and families will find ideal conditions on the mostly blue and red slopes of the Hausberg. If snow conditions are optimal, the beginners courses for children and adults start right at the foot of the Hausberg, next to the valley station of the Hausberg cable car.

The Kinderland is located directly at the mountain station of the Hausberg cable car and offers everything to make small skiers' hearts beat faster. Once the kids are able to stand safely on their skis, the trained ski instructors will take them over different snow bumps, past various snow figures, through colourful arches and with the magic carpet back to the beginning. Learning to ski at the ski schools in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a real treat!

How do we find a suitable activity?

In every ski resort you will find an overview of all available offers. On the left side you have filters to quickly find the right offer. For example, you can search specifically for beginner ski courses for children in groups.

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.
