Superbly educated, trained, tested and certified, ski instructors and ski guides provide the very best safety for their guests. The more than 120 ski schools in the state of Salzburg are operated by 147 nationally certified ski teachers and ski guides.
These school directors employ as many as 6,000 ski and snowboard instructors in high season who guide and supervise Salzburg’s winter guests professionally.
For decades, highly qualified and thoroughly trained and educated national ski teachers and ski guides, as well as mountain guides, have worked at Salzburg’s ski schools. Their profound qualifications enable and legally empower them to provide ski instruction in outlying terrain, on backcountry tours and freeriding descents.
Some of Salzburg’s ski schools, including Gasteinertal, Maria Alm, Annaberg, Kaprun, Saalbach, etc. have tailored their offerings particularly to these aspects of winter tourism - freeriding and guided backcountry ski tours - in order to optimally answer these desires for their guests.
About 300 nationally certified ski teachers and ski guides at Salzburg’s ski schools guarantee the very best safety for our guests in open backcountry terrain.
The major demand at Salzburg’s ski schools is for instruction for children and beginners:
Over the last 10 years the ski teachers at Salzburg’s ski schools have stirred the enthusiasm of more than a million skiers for this sport.
Salzburg’s ski schools also operate about 400 of their own lifts (free of charge for winter sports guests), e.g. Magic Carpets and rope tows. With their expertise and professional know-how, they turnneophytes and non-athletes into true (paying) skiers and users of ski slopes.
Winter guests derive great benefit from the outstanding collaboration of tourist operation associates, which in turn underpins healthy touristic competition in a village, resort or throughout a valley.
For that reason, Salzburg’s ski schools and their qualified staff extend a warm invitation to one and all to come and see for themselves the diversity, the quality and the professional organisation, accompanied by the highest standards of safety for our winter guests in all areas of service provided.
‘Pros in alpine safety’ don’t have to be imported. They are already here.
