How does the level classification work? The classification will be conducted directly by the ski instructors on the first day. We work with the Swiss Snow League, the training system of the Swiss Ski and Snowboardinstructor Association. Kids who already have had training within the Swiss Snow League system, will be divided according to their booklet.

Do beginners need a lift pass? No. The use of the beginner lifts is included (till level Blue Star). Beginner groups will receive discounted day passes through their SSD instructors for the trips to the ski resorts.

When do the races / award ceremonies take place? The ski races take place every Friday. Beginner groups (Snowgarden – Red Prince) have their race at Bünda and Bolgen. Intermediate groups (from Red King) will compete on Friday mornings on Rinerhorn. The ski instructor will provide you with a detailed schedule on Friday morning. The snowboard race (Boardercross) takes place every Friday on Rinerhorn. The award ceremonies are held directly after the race.

Do children receive a keepsake? All children who participate in the children’s race will receive a medal.

What happens if I have a different level than the rest of my group? The instructor will observe every participant and will make sure you get into the right group. Changing groups is possible at any time.

Do I have to give the instructor any notice if I am not coming today? The instructor would appreciate it!

Do I have to pick up my child at lunch break? No. Full day groups (from Red King onwards) will stay with their instructor in the ski area for lunch and will eat in one of the restaurants. Please make sure to give your children around CHF 25.00 per lunch.Children who have their lesson in our beginner areas have the possibility to stay for lunch at the restaurant Bolgenplaza or the hotel Bünda. Please book lunchtime childcare in advance in one of our offices.

Where do I pick up my child after the lesson?  Our groups always return to the same meeting point where they have met in the morning.

Private lessons

Are private lessons possible at any time? Private lessons are possible every day on a certain schedule. We recommend making reservations in advance.

Where do private lessons take place? In all resorts of Davos/Klosters. You can meet the instructor at any marked meeting point directly on the mountain, at one of our offices, or the instructor can pick you up in your hotel.

Until when is it possible to cancel a private lesson to avoid full payment? All cancellation must be made before 5:30 pm the evening prior to the lesson at our head office. Last minute cancellation will be charged 100 %.
