Our office is located in the "Punka" service building, right next to the Helm cable car in Vierschach, directly by the main entrance next to the ski pass office.
Our opening hours during the main season are daily from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm (may vary in the off-season).
Private lessons are offered daily from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, with the period from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm prioritized for group courses.
All prices listed are per person for the duration of the offer.
The ski pass is not included in the specified prices.
Ski courses for children start every Sunday afternoon or Monday morning.
Ski courses for adults and snowboard courses start every Sunday afternoon or Monday morning (subject to changes).
During the Christmas holidays, you can join the courses daily.
An initial familiarisation with skiing can take place very early on, as soon as the children develop an interest in it. Lessons make sense when the children are ready to detach themselves from their parents for the duration of the lesson and are able to engage with the instructor. We recommend private and group lessons from the age of approx. 3 years. For 3-year-olds, we recommend booking a taster day. It may turn out that it is still too early, as the biological age does not always correspond to the chronological age.
In principle, you will not get any money back. It is possible to book the first day as a taster day for all group courses, especially recommended for the very youngest children, and then possibly extend the course. In any case, we will endeavour to find a suitable solution for everyone.
No, this is not necessary. The children take a short break during the ski course. They will be given a warm drink to warm up and a small snack to keep them going.
Yes, our ski instructors and child carers will also help the children with this.
Parents can watch the ski lessons, but the lessons should not be disturbed. Experience has shown that it is better for the children if the parents are not in the immediate vicinity of the practice area.
For the group courses, the children meet at the conveyor belt or at the Helm mountain station, depending on their ability level. You will receive more detailed information about the meeting point at the ski school office when you register and from our ski instructors for the following days.
Beginner groups start on Sunday or Monday. The possibility of joining the group course on a different day must be clarified at the ski school office.
Helmets are compulsory up to the age of 18. We recommend that all children and adults wear a helmet.
We recommend booking via our online shop. Book your course from the comfort of your own home and save time on site. Alternatively, you can also book directly at our office up to one day before the course starts.
Groups are primarily organised according to the children's riding ability and age. If the children have roughly the same ability level, please let us know when you enrol and when you are allocated to a group, and we will do our best. If the children do not ski equally well, the child who skis better should take the weaker child into consideration or join the weaker group.
Unfortunately, for organisational reasons, it is generally not possible to book a group course with a particular teacher.
If new sub-goals need to be learnt or consolidated, it is advantageous to practise on flat slopes where the children feel safe and therefore make faster progress.
We endeavour to divide up the groups and make them as homogeneous as possible so that the ski instructor can create methodically well-structured lessons. The group size varies between 5 and 10 children. Sometimes groups consist of 6 and 7 children and in very exceptional cases more than 10 children.
All children beginners do not need ski poles. The following applies to advanced children for the first day: Children who have already learnt to ski with ski poles should bring them with them on the first day. Children who have never skied with ski poles come without them on the first day. The ski instructor will provide the necessary information for the following course days.
Suitable for children aged 3 and over who can already take part in the ski course. We do not offer pure childcare.
Yes, lunch is included in the price for full-day courses. For half-day courses, it is possible to book lunch and lunchtime supervision separately.
The children get a varied meal. They eat in the ski huts and can choose some of the meals themselves.
The race normally always takes place on Friday, the last day of the course. More detailed information or changes will be announced by the ski instructor. For organisational reasons, there are no final races over the Christmas and New Year holidays.
The award ceremony will take place directly after the race.
Participation in the final race is included in the course price.
In the ski school office it is possible to pay with cash, EC card or credit card (except American Express). In order to shorten waiting times at the ski school office, we ask our guests to book safely and conveniently from home and pay by credit card.
Yes, all booked lessons are paid for at the time of registration at the office. Participation in the course without a valid ticket is not possible.
We only offer private lessons on Saturdays and Sundays (except during the Christmas period).
If you fall ill during the course, the remaining course days can be credited (on presentation of a medical certificate) (valid for 2 years). However, a refund of the course fee is not possible. Every guest should therefore take out travel cancellation insurance in advance.
Winter sports are outdoor sports! For us, there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing. Skiing can often be much more fun when it's snowing than when the sun is shining. The lessons included in a package will not be made up or refunded due to bad weather conditions.
If a student does not attend a lesson or arrives late, he/she is not entitled to make up the lessons or receive a refund.
No, but there is a ski hire shop right next to the ski school office.
It depends on your skiing ability, but you can get the best advice at the ski hire shop.
No, ski passes must always be purchased separately. Prices and information can be found on the official homepage www.dreizinnen.com
In principle, everyone who wants to use a lift facility needs a ski pass, regardless of whether it is in connection with the ski school or privately. Enquire about discounted family ski passes.
The FIS rules are general rules of behaviour for skiers and snowboarders issued by the International Ski Federation FIS. They apply worldwide and not just on ski slopes and are intended to prevent accidents and mutual endangerment in a similar way to road traffic regulations. The overriding principle of the FIS rules is "consideration".
All skiers and snowboarders must behave in such a way that they do not endanger, harm or restrict others in the performance of their activities.
Every skier and snowboarder must ski on sight. They must adapt their speed and skiing style to their ability and the terrain, snow and weather conditions as well as the density of traffic.
Skiers or snowboarders coming from behind must choose their lane in such a way that they do not endanger skiers or snowboarders in front of them.
You may overtake from above or below, from the right or left, but always at a distance that allows the overtaken skier or snowboarder enough space for all his movements.
Every skier and snowboarder who wants to enter a ski run, start again after a stop or turn or ski uphill must make sure that they can do so without endangering themselves or others.
Every skier and snowboarder must avoid staying in narrow or unclear places on a slope without need. A skier or snowboarder who has fallen must clear such a place as quickly as possible.
A skier or snowboarder ascending or descending on foot must use the edge of the slope.
Every skier and snowboarder must observe the markings and signalling.
Every skier and snowboarder is obliged to provide assistance in the event of an accident.
Every skier and snowboarder, whether witness or participant, whether responsible or not, must provide their identity information in the event of an accident.
