Learn to ski & freeridng

Dachstein Krippenstein in the UNESCO Heritage world region in the Salzkammergut is not just a great playground for adults, "up-and-coming freeriders and snowboarders" really get their money’s worth too.

Either laid-back and easy in the valley in Krippi-Park, or with Outdoor Leadership ski instructors on the practice lift on Krippenstein mountain near the mountain station. PS: Parents can watch the little ski rookies make their first ski turns directly from the mountain restaurants :-)

Krippenstein practice lift

The ski piste at the Krippenstein practice lift is the perfect playground for making your first carving turns on real natural snow pistes. Learn to ski is so easy and just makes fun.

PS: On the Krippenstein the ski instructor from the Skiguides Krippenstein show you the best skiing technique and you can show your parents how it’s done! 

You really get to let off steam!

Outdoor Leadership also has patience with children and beginners, helping them get on their skis and snowboards!

The lovely ski instructors show your children the best tricks, and provide adult beginners a greater understanding of snowboarding, in special courses! Don’t be shy; no-one is born a master ;))).
