For child beginners a language guarantee can be booked (extra charge 5%).
For advanced skiers we have a large number of Dutch ski instructors and also a few Austrian instructors, who speak a little Dutch; however, we cannot guarantee a Dutch ski instructor.
Our experience over the years at the Ski School Maria Alm has shown that learning outcomes are considerably greater after 4 hours than after 2 hours. The ski school's whole concept and learning programme is based on four-hour lessons.
With 4 hours the learning objective can be set on skiing on blue slopes!
No, it is not necessary, but if you book online , you have a range of benefits:

Children from the age of 3 years may attend the 2-hour Bambini courses from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
Supervisors trained in children's education take care of the children, who are not able to decide whether they want to play or ski. These methods turn the children into little ski stars with absolutely no pressure.
We recommend that children attending snowboard courses are aged at least 6 years.
Allocation Children: Children are allocated to groups at the Natrun and Aberg valley station collection points by means of a short test. At the Kirchenwiese collection point children are allocated to groups by means of an interview or according to their level pass from the previous year.
Allocation Adults: Adults are allocated to a group by means of an interview.
We allocate children into groups at the Komperdell middle station. Children are primarily allocated to groups in accordance with their skiing skills, language and age.
If your children or a group of friends are at roughly the same level, there is no problem in allocating them together in one group. However, we would request you to mention this wish at the time of allocation. If the children are not at the same level, but nevertheless would like to ski in the same group, the child with the higher level must take the child with the poorer skills into consideration.
The maxim here: the earlier, the better! In holiday periods we would always recommend that you book the ski instructor in advance by e-mail or through our home page, so that we can satisfy your requirements. Of course, it is possible, depending on availability, to make a booking at short notice at our offices on site.
Private lessons with language requirements must always be agreed by e-mail - with the exception of German and English!
The specified private tariffs apply to 1 person; a supplement is payable for every further person. In workshops from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. the price is valid for up to 3 persons without supplements.
There is also a special family offer.
In this offer the price for two persons is charged and the remaining direct family members (parents and children from 7 years) ski without charge. For this offer all the participants must ski at a similar level .
Basically it is not possible to cancel courses. The ski school has several offers, e.g. the taster ticket or extensions, so that your risk is kept as low as possible. However, if, contrary to expectations, things do not work out, we are able to transfer your course within the ski school or offset against other family members. If you want to cancel a course because of illness or injury, this is of course no problem if you submit a doctor's certificate.
