Snowboard

Courses for all ages and skills

We know how to make a snowboarder happy. Not just since yesterday, but for many years, we have trained extensively to offer you the very best coaching.
From the beginner to the experienced boarder, with a little practice, you can get around in the Curnius Snowpark, also known as the P60, or in the largest halfpipe in the world. Do not hesitate, snowboarding is simply FUN.

Beginners under 6 years – Snow Kindergarten

We offer the Snow Kindergarten to beginners under 6 years. This is a combination of childcare in the crèche, learning to snowboard and playing in the snow. If care in the crèche is not required, we also offer one-hour snowboard lessons.


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) snowboard on the mountain, they need a lift ticket. For beginner (level 1) we offer heavily reduced lift tickets in combination with lessons. Detailed information is available at the LAAX School office.
