Ski School for Children

From the age of 2 yrs, children are looked after at the HUBSI Bambini Club.

Between the ages of 2 ½ and 3 yrs, children can attend a ‘introductory ski course’, and depending of their interest, they can book a further ½ day in this course or a full day at a special rate.

At the age of 4 yrs, children can join the children’s ski courses. The groups are assigned according to ski experience.

The upper limit is 8 children per group. In the case of private lessons, the children receive one-on-one instruction or in small, self-chosen groups.

The meeting place is at the ski slope in Reith bei Kitzbuehel:

  • Slope Group: 9:30 am
  • Mountain Group: 9:00 am

Yes, either ½ day, 1 full day, 2 days, 3 days, etc.

The longer the children ski course is booked, the less expensive the individual day is.

Beginners and intermediate skiers, who stay on the ski slope located in front of the Ski School Reith bei Kitzbuehel (the Slope Group) DO NOT require a lift ticket.

As soon as the children begin skiing in the ski region Kitzbuehel, they need a lift ticket. The ski instructors will inform them in time. All advanced children (the Mountain Group), who ski with the group in the ski region Kitzbuehel and are 6 yrs or older will require a lift ticket from the Bergbahn AG Kitzbuehel. Children under the age of 6 yrs can use the lifts free-of-charge.

Rückenprotektor – bei fortgeschrittenen Kindern empfehlen wir das Tragen eines Rückenprotektors.

Please wear warm and dry clothing suitable for the weather conditions. Mittens are warmer than gloves, and a balaclava provides more warmth on cold, stormy days. Skis for beginners should not reach any taller than the shoulders and for advanced skiers the tips of their noses. Ski helmets are absolutely necessary. Ski boots should have 2 to 4 buckles, and as a rule of thumb – the more experienced one it, the more buckles the boots should have. Don’t forget sun screen! Sunscreen and sunglasses are also necessary in cloudy weather conditions. Ski goggles are strongly recommended for snowy conditions. Packing some tissues in your child’s jacket is always a good idea.
