The popular ski course for children in the silver region Karwendel “Hello Karwendolin! – I was with you this year in the ski course and it was super great. I’m already looking forward to the next winter holiday with you. Best regards! Alexander” This entry of a Nuremberg boy in the guestbook of the mascot “Karwendolin” is an example for the satisfaction of the guests with the free children’s ski courses. For many years, the ski course for children has been offered in the Tyrolean holiday region of the Karwendel Silver Region.
Why the Karwendel children’s ski course? On the one hand there is the offer of free children’s ski courses, on the other hand in the region the orientation of lifts, ski schools and also accommodation for beginners is convincing. Thousands of children are proof of the success of the last few years. Local children also learn to ski here.
Ski school for children in Tyrol
Children’s ski schools that are fully attuned to the childrenYesterday the Stemmschwung was still learnt and today it is already on the Wedeln. “We only use ski instructors who are trained in dealing with children. Thanks to the training methodology, the kids learn to ski playfully,” explains Erich Schippl from the Kellerjoch Ski School on Pillberg. From the magic carpet to the merry-go-round, the aids for the playful learning elements stretch each other. In a three-step plan, the kids are led from the first “walk” on the two boards to the ski all-rounder.
Learn to ski in four days
After 4 days children can ski “70 percent of the beginners can already ski down the blue slopes of our local mountain, the Arbeser, with us on Thursday”, the head of the ski school sums up and points to the final highlight: the children’s ski race on Friday. “The beaming eyes of the boys and girls when they receive a medal at the end of the race confirm that we have worked well”, Schippl is pleased.
His friend and colleague Markus Löffler from the Silversport ski school, who is responsible for the courses in Weerberg, adds: “Small groups, max. ten children per group with the advanced and max. six children per group with our Bambinis (4 years old) enable us to cater to the needs of the child and to look after them optimally. The ski course is loosened up and optimised at the same time by games that support learning”.
Family ski resorts in Tyrol

What parents still appreciate: A high degree of safety. On the small ski runs there are no speeders that pose a risk for beginners. It’s cosy here.
