Is the bus transfer included in your price?

Yes, the bus transfer is included in the price.

Does the bus have to stay in South Tyrol? Who carries the costs for the driver′s accommodation?

The bus does not have to stay in South Tyrol. The public ski bus will be utilised for all transfers to and from the ski area (7km). Only the first transfer into the ski area on Monday after lunch (around 13.30 o‘clock). The return transfer will be with the public ski bus. If you booked the bus through us, there will be no costs for the accommodation of the driver. In the case that “Your” bus remains in the area, You should calculate the costs into your budget, as the hotel does not offer free accommodation for this. A good ballpoint figure is about 40,- € per day, Dinner, Bed & Breakfast.

Can I get a single-room as a teacher?

A request would have to be put out to the hotel. There may be extra costs in this regard.

What do our scholars have to bring along to the Winter Camp?

Durable clothing for the mountains(which can also get wet) - the best would of course be a ski jacket and pants, Hat, at least one pair of gloves and ski socks. For the cross-country course, one would need to bring applicable clothing( tracksuit, windbreaker). Should a scholar not have a ski pants, he7she should bring a minimum of 3 durable pants (jeans). Towels and toiletries!!!! As well as personal belongings. No need to bring bedding!

Can the scholars/teachers bring their own ski material? Is there an extra charge?

One can bring own equipment/material. However, this is not recommended. The price includes rental of all required material and equipment. We do not take any responsibility of any faulty material/equipment that was not supplied by us. There is no safe storage and there will be no refund of costs.

Do you also offer Cross-Country courses?

Yes. This can however only be offered if 13 to 15 scholars partake. Please inquire about this!!

How many scholars can I sign up for snowboarding lessons?

We are trying to follow the trend, and have stocked up our depots to meet all requirements. We can host about 60 people in Oberwiesenthal, and about 30 people. These numbers are calculated on the total occupancy of the week. Should you have a great request, please contact us in advance so that we can find a solution for you!

I have obese scholars. Would a Winter Camp be worth it?

Generally speaking, sport activities are good for the positive wellbeing of an obese person. These activities should, however, be carried out under medical supervision/instruction.

Due to it being a school trip, the scholars are insured via the school. The responsible accident insurance is (for example, in Saxony) the Accident Fund Saxony.

How is the snow in Oberwiesenthal, particularly in the months of December and March?

Since the completion of the artificial snow machine, there is no problem concerning this.

What do we do if the condition of the snow does not render itself for training?

We will definitely NOT do nothing. The expenses of the cable way can be channelled into alternative activities. In South Tyrol one can take day visits to Bolzano or Merano. In Oberwiesenthal we practice the so-called “geen week”. The scholars will attend courses of their choice to keep occupied.

Will there be a refund if there is no snow?

No. We state in our Terms & Conditions, that we cannot be held responsible for the weather conditions. The responsibility of poor weather, just like on any holiday, falls on the client.

No. -However, depending on their qualification, they could lead a course. Many teachers use the opportunity of the free time to diarise the winter camp.
