YOUR snowboarding COuRSe in Bad Hofgastein

The valley of snowboarding dreams

At the beginning of the year, World Cup vibes set in for a whole weekend in Bad Gastein. Why not try your hands at snowboarding or swap your two skis for then one board. No matter if beginner, freestyler, freerider or speedjunkie - in the Skischool Bad Hofgastein you'll take your first swings under the supervision of certified snowboarding instructors, honing your technique, style and confidence. The minimum age for a snowboarding course in Bad Hofgastein is eight years, with no upper limit.

Of course, learning in a group with like-minded is a lot of fun. But those who place value on individual attention have the option of taking individual practice sessions with a private instructor. From getting to know the equipment and the first attempts at sliding, to race carving or freeriding - learning with others is more fun than by yourself. Enjoy the feeling of safety in numbers while improving your style.

In addition to our unique beginners' area in the Ski Centre Angertal the ski area provides plenty of options on and off the slopes with a fun park on the Stubnerkogel as well as challenging downhill runs.

Together and not alone!

The snowboard community in particular likes to appear in groups. So why plague yourself alone? Following a five-day snowboarding course, our snowboarders form a strong fellowship which often spends the last day of their holidays without the instructor. No matter if beginner or experienced "Parkie" – it runs in the group!

From getting to know the equipment and the first attempts at sliding, to race carving or freeriding - if you want to learn to snowboard in Gastein, doing so with others is more fun than by yourself. Enjoy the feeling of safety in numbers while improving your style.
