Welcome to Hochhäderich Ski School!

For over 40 years our Ski & Snowboard School is well known for state-of-the art instruction and a professional organisation.

At our Hochhäderich location (1300m - 1600m) in the Bregenzerwald (AUT), we offer you an attractive range of courses from mid-December to mid-April. The high snow savety, the short distances and the professional infrastructure distinguish our course area especially.

Families and children are our main focus. But not only learning, but also fun and experience characterize our courses. For beginners we can offer you large kids area with three magic carpets and a great children's igloo.

We are happy to show you the fascination of skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing.

We're looking forward to seeing you,
Timm Stade
Professional ski & snowboard instructor and ski guide

Our Ski Resort Hochhäderich

Everything should be as simple as possible to make your skiing holidays really fun. Our ski resort Hochhäderich offers ideal conditions, especially for families and kids. Our office and meeting point are located directly at the Almhotel Hochhäderich. The short distances make your daily organisation easy. Our Kids World and the skilifts are also right next to the hotel. An excellent infrastructure with well-equipped ski-rental, restaurants, cross-country ski runs and winter hiking trails leave nothing to be desired. Despite its easy accessibility by car, the Hochhäderich offers a legendary snow savety. An almost unbeatable combination!

Kids World - Kinderland

The Kids World, is perfect for beginners to learn to ski safely, easily and playfully from 3 years onwards. The area is only accessable to the children of the ski school. The Kids World is located close to the Almhotel Hochhäderich and can easily be reached by foot. Our ski instructors prepare all the learning stations every day to provide perfect learning conditions. Our three magic carpets (conveyor belts of 10m, 24m, 39m) bring the children up the hill easily and safely, so that they use all their energy for skiing. For the breaks the kids can use our heated children's igloo. Since our Kinderland is located at 1300m, it is particularly snow-save, so that the children have a great learning area until the end of the season.


 

Skiing, Snowboarding, Cross-Country

In our ski school we offer you a variety of courses during the whole season. You have the full choice of snow sports: Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding and Cross-Country Skiing. At Hochhäderich, skislopes, cross-country trails and our Kids World are very close together, so that everyone gets his money's worth. Our trained instructors show you the whole fascination of winter sports, no matter which equipment you prefer.
