The minimum age to become a children’s ski instructor is 15 years. We offer this training within the ski school and free of charge for our employees. After completing this course, you will be allowed to teach children in the “beginner” and “slightly advanced” range on open ski slopes.
For the next level – ski instructor candidates – the minimum age is 16 years. The training is carried out by the Tyrolean Ski Instructors Association. Some of our ski instructors also work as trainers as part of this training. After successfully completing the final exam, you can now also teach adults.
Now it’s time to stay on the ball. During the winter season, we continue to educate ourselves as ski instructors. We learn every day when giving the ski course how we can do it better and during the weekly ski instructor training, you improve your own skills on skis with the help of experienced ski instructors, the correct use of aids, the recognition and correction of mistakes are trained and also Foreign language skills are learned and practised. As a ski instructor you not only have to be able to ski well, but you also need many other skills and a “good” way of dealing with people.
