Welcome to the valley of snowboard dreams!
In addition to our unique beginner’s area in the Angertal ski resort, the ski area offers variety both on and off the slopes, with a fun park on the Stubnerkogel and challenging runs for all levels of riders.
Snowboard courses for all levels
The snowboard community particularly enjoys coming together in groups. So why struggle alone? After a five-day course, our snowboarders become a tight-knit community that often spends the last vacation day together even without an instructor. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced park rider, being in a group makes everything more enjoyable!
From getting to know the equipment and making the first sliding attempts in snowboarding in Gastein to race carving or freeriding – learning with others is more fun than doing it alone. Enjoy the feeling of safety in the group and simultaneously improve your style.
10:00 AM – 3:00 PM, with a one-hour lunch break.
09:15 AM at the ski school office in Bad Hofgastein or 09:45 AM at the ski center in Angertal.
