Safe in the ski school

The ski and snowboard schools are ready to start! In order to ensure that the lessons are carried out safely, the ski schools have worked intensively on the implementation of the official safety measures and have drawn up specific safety concepts.

The ski instructors have been trained in these specific protective measures. The teams of the ski schools will do their utmost to make the individual lessons as safe as possible. The health of all participants is the main focus here.
