My skiing ability

Skiing ability: Self rating

Here you can get an overview over the different skill levels that will help us find the right group for you. The goals you can achieve are dependent on many factors two of which are your skill level when you start the lessons and of course also on how many days of group or private lessons you book with us.

We differentiate 6 skill levels

BLUE

Level 6I am a complete beginner and have never skied before.

BLUE

Level 5I have skied once before, but it’s been quite a while since then. I think I can manage to slow down with a snow plough on gentle slopes. (Plough)

BLUE

Level 4I can ski gentle blue slopes. I can turn both directions on very gentle slopes but sometimes I have trouble turning one way. (Snow Plough Turn)

RED

Level 3I have no trouble on blue slopes. I have already been on red slopes but I am not confident on red slopes and narrow paths. Sometimes, on blue slopes, I can turn without having to do a Snow Plough.
(Stem Turn)

RED

Level 2I have no trouble on red slopes. I have already been on a few black slopes, but I feel more comfortable on red slopes. I can do Parallel turns (in an open stance) on blue & red slopes. On a very steep slope, I sometimes need to do a Snow Plough.
(Parallel Turn)

 BLACK 

Level 1I have no trouble with black slopes. I can also control my speed while making short turns on steep terrain. I am interested in skiing steeper slopes (off piste, mogul slopes or deep snow) (Short turn – expert level)

Grading – information:

Adult group lessons intermediate and advanced:

We start every monday at 09.30am with the grading. We meet in front of the Kinderalm on top of the gondola at the Brandstadl mountain for a welcome. Adults will be leaded to the grading slop below the “Osthangbahn chairlift” on the right hand side.
You will find a flag on the top of the grading slope (start of the testing). On bottom of the grading run you see different numbers (this are the group numbers). The instructors will watch your skiing level and grading you into the classes.
Following days you meet your group (group number) at the meeting place on top of the gondola – opposite the KinderKaiserland.

Children group lessons intermediate and advanced:

We start every sunday and monday at 09.30am with the grading. We meet in front of the Kinderalm on top of the gondola at the Brandstadl mountain  for a welcome. Then the children will be leaded to the grading slop below the “Osthangbahn chairlift” on the left hand side.
You will find a flag on the top of the grading slope (start of the testing). On the bottom of the grading slope you see colored flags (blue, red and black). Our instructors will watch the children´s skiing level and will set up the classes.

For the afternoon lesson and each following day the ski groups meet at the Ski School meeting place on the top of the gondola, opposite the Kinderkaiserland, at their group number.
