Kitzbühel, 14. January, 2019 – Picture a perfect day of skiing: putting your ski boots on right as you leave the hotel, getting on the ski lift, weaving through powdery snow and with your last turn you practically stop in the sauna or spa area.This wonderfully convenient “ski in – ski out” concept does in fact exist! In Jochberg, amid the Kitzbühel Alps and all of this with the 5-star luxury offered by Kempinski Hotel Das Tirol - Ski school included.

Our in-house “Snow Academy Jochberg” offers both beginners and experts, groups and individual skiers perfect skiing days or weeks - even in 13 (!) languages. There is a children’s area with a “magic carpet” right on the hotel premises.Head of academy, Alois Reichholf, and his highly trained instructors guarantee quick results thanks to modern teaching methods with each student being able to track their progress “to the next level” via video analysis. Private lessons are also available (2 hours from 180 Euros, full day courses - 360 Euros).

Courses for children 3 years and older

Our approach with children is to let them learn playfully, in a safe environment and with top ski instructors, specially trained in teaching children. Their “ski experience” begins with the first techniques being taught right on the hotel premises, involving lots of fun and surprises. Right after learning the basics, children are taken to the adjacent drag lift where they are prepared for the “big mountain”. At the end of a kids’ ski day or week, there is always a contest and an award ceremony which encourages kids to show off their skills to win great prizes.

The more experienced skiers are assessed and divided up into groups. Head of academy, Alois Reichholf, says: “We believe that only small groups guarantee optimal learning, which is why we always try to keep groups as small as possible. As safety is our main concern, children are required to wear a helmet and safety vest. And of course we also take care of the kids’ hunger with a la carte dishes in the hotel or in one of our partner restaurants!”

Half day (10 – 12 am) and full day (10 am – 3 pm, including a 1 hour lunch break) courses are priced as follows:

Half days                               Full days

1 day  = 50.00€                      85.00€

Tours & Freerides

We offer easier tours for beginners, which are adapted to our guests’ individual experience and fitness levels. These usually feature an easy ascent and a descent on the slope. We also organise evening tours with a stop in a nice mountain restaurant for a cosy get together or barbecue.
More experienced skiers can take our alpine tours in the Hohe Tauern National Park, which boast breath taking scenery and endless stunning slopes, some of them glaciated! And in spring we offer touring weekends in the Pitztal valley and Silvretta Alps.

Freeriders will be enticed by some truly beautiful descents: The Kitzbühl Alps with their extensive slopes offer perfect conditions for beginners and more advanced skiers. The well-located lifts offer fantastic open terrain descents with minimum physical effort. Small climbs along the way allow skiers to enjoy secluded, untouched terrain as well as the tranquillity and beauty of the mountains.

You can book your tour and safety gear online, or rent gear on site from the hotel ski shop.

The Jochberg Snow Academy offers access to slalom and giant slalom runs on a specially prepared and separated racing slopes. Whether you are young or old, a beginner or an advanced skier, the perfect training concept awaits you…
