Ski schools and Private lessons

Experienced snow sports teachers and ski guides personally assist adults and children of every ability. Would you like to leave tracks in the deep snow off-piste? Then book yourself a ski guide who knows the area and who will show you the best slopes and keep you safe.

The Oberlech Children’s Ski Club offers a special “Snow, Play and Ski” childcare programme which provides care for half and whole days. The Children’s Ski School is located in front of our hotel. You can see its colourful goings-on from some of our rooms and our sun terrace.

The programmes are split into two groups:

  • Ski kids from 3 years up
  • Play kids from 2 years up

The skilled childcare at Hotel Bergkristall is available for young guests from Sunday to Friday, upon consultation, from 4:30 pm.

Please consider reserving a place on a skiing course or a private skiing teaching – ideally when booking your stay or directly at the ski school of your choice.
