Ski School

Austrian ski schools are renowned for being amongst the best in the world and Ski Hillwood has no hesitation in recommending the Weltmeister Schischule Top Alpin, run by Peter Walchhofer. It is based in the Zauchenseehof, with its meeting point on the area outside the hotel’s ski room and just below one of Zauchensee’s main lifts, it could not be more convenient. The ski instructors are excellent and the majority speak excellent English.

Group lessons can be booked either for children or adults as can private lessons – availability can be limited – the ski school teach both skiing and snowboarding.

Snowboarding lessons are available as group lesson in the afternoon during the peak season dates only.

Check out these short clips by the ski school to see the different levels.

Children’s Ski School : 3 – 4 years Old

The ski school encourages children as young as three years old to try skiing, the lessons run in the morning’s only from 10.00am – 12.30pm (Sunday – Thursday) and it is fun all the way. The experienced ski instructors encourage the little ones to slide down the gentle slope of the dedicated area through hoops and round cartoon characters. Skiing is interspersed with games, tobogganing and ride in the inflatables. This age group doesn’t always take to skiing or manage the whole week so once skiing is over the Ski Hillwood team can collect the young skier for games and Lunch.

Children’s Ski School

Lessons are for all abilities and run morning and afternoon for five days, from 10am – 12.30pm and then resume after lunch at 2.00pm – 3.30pm. The ski instructors encourage budding skiers to make the most of the experience, so whether just starting skiing or already have some experience, we are confident your children will enjoy their time with their ski instructor. Beginners start on the dedicated nursery slope where they learn the basics before progressing up the mountain. The more experienced skiers can be seen around the mountain following their instructors both on the piste and sometimes through the tree or over jumps! The ski school does insist that helmets are worn.
