Beginners under 4 years – Snow Kindergarten

We offer the Snow Kindergarten to beginners under 4 years. This is a combination of childcare in the crèche, learning to ski and playing in the snow. If care in the crèche is not required, we also offer one-hour ski lessons.


Beginners from 4 years and Intermediate in Snow Wonderland – Beginners to Blue 2

For beginners and intermediate children, we offer half- or full-day classes. Lunch and supervision is always included in full day courses. The lessons for all groups, Beginners to Blue 2, start in the Snow Wonderland (practice area at the base). Depending on progress during the week, the children also ski on the mountain. For these children, we recommend booking the full-day lesson including lunch and supervision. The lessons take place on consecutive days!

Half-day group lessons take place in the morning. During the weeks of 30.12. / 10.02. / 17.02. / 24.02. we also offer half-day lessons in the afternoon.

In Snow Wonderland Falera, we offer group lessons for children from Monday to Friday, from 23rd December 2019 until 6th March 2020.


Children – Advanced on the Mountain – Blue 3 to Black 

As soon as the children can independently travel by lift and safely ski on blue slopes (from Blue 3), lessons will take place on the mountain. We offer full-day classes, from 3 days, including lunch and supervision. The ski race takes place on Thursday on the mountain. The lessons take place on consecutive days!


Adults – E1 to E5

Group lessons for adults are held in groups of 2 or more people. We offer 3-day courses, from Monday to Wednesday, for the levels E1 to E5 (lessons for level E6 in private lessons). If there is sufficient demand, the lessons can be extended on site.


Lift Ticket

The lift ticket is not included in the course price. Children in Snow Wonderland (practice area at the base) do not need a lift ticket. As soon as the children (6 years and older) ski on the mountain, they need a lift ticket. For children we offer heavily reduced lift tickets in combination with lessons for beginner until level Blue 2. We also offer reduced lift tickets for adult beginners (only E1). Detailed information is available at the LAAX School office.

Equipment

Naturally, to complete a successful ski course, you also need the right ski equipment: in addition to skis and boots, you also need a helmet, ski goggles, gloves and the right clothing. Skis and ski boots can be hired at LAAX Rental at the base stations.
