Ski and snowboard school for everyone: Discover our diverse courses in Winterberg

Whether beginner or advanced, children or adults – our ski school in Winterberg offers tailor-made courses for everyone. Learn to ski or snowboard, improve your skills or brush up on them in an atmosphere full of fun and enjoyment!

For little winter sports fans, we have a special children’s area with a magic carpet that makes skiing up the mountain child’s play. Our team of professional instructors offers courses in German, Dutch and English so that everyone can start their winter sports adventure safely and with pleasure.

Our courses take place from Monday to Sunday, 08:45 to 16:00, with extended opening hours on Friday for floodlit skiing until 20:00. Registration takes place via our ski school on the Poppenberg, whereby we attach great importance to punctual arrival and correct equipment. Group courses are available for groups of 5 or more, with flexible times for smaller groups. Please note that reservations for ski lessons are exclusively for Landal Ferienpark guests and we recommend booking at least two weeks in advance.

Discover our attractive offers: Group courses for adults and children from the age of 5 at fair prices and individual private courses for up to 4 people, also during floodlight skiing. Join us for an unforgettable winter sports experience – we look forward to seeing you!
