Questions & Answers
How old does my child have to be in order to participate at a group lesson?
Children from 3 years can participate at group lessons (Snow Kindergarten for age 3).
Can beginners join the group lessons on any day of the week?
No, beginners can start the group lessons on Mondays and Tuesdays, otherwise the rest of the group is already too advanced.
How big are the groups in a group course?
The number of participants varies depending on the group you booked. The exact numbers are available in the Info-Box with the respective course offers.
The minimum group size for all courses is 4 persons (except for adult courses with a minimum number of participants of 3 persons).
We want to keep the group courses with a small number of participants in order to guarantee an intensive learning experience.
What happens if there are less than four persons for a group lesson?
If the group size of children is reduced to 2 or 3 participants or to 2 adults, the Snow Sports School reserves the right to put groups together or to reduce the number of lessons.
How will I be assigned to the right group?
The first grouping is done based on the information you provided at the point of booking. If you don't want to choose the course level yourself and do not know your last level, we will be pleased to assist you.
After warming up on the first course day, all participants will show their skills to the instructors on a suitable slope. Afterwards, the participants are assigned to groups depending on their skills.
What if I have been assigned to the wrong course level?
At the start you need some patience until everyone is in the right group. The instructors always try to make the required changes by the break (approx. 2 hours after course start), if somebody should be in the wrong course level. If at the end of the first day, you still have the feeling that you or your child are in the wrong group, please talk to the instructor or the main instructor on the slope. They will help you to find the "right" group for yourself.
What is the course content and the course goal?
The course content does not describe what you can do already, but what you will learn during the course. When booking, you should therefore not choose the level that you meet already, but always the next higher level.
