Blue League, Red League and Black Acadamy finish their lessons at the bottom of the Sternegg, next to the Restaurant Sternegg.

Do we have to book in advanced our group lessons?

We recommend to book your lessons with our online shop or send us an e-mail. During high season it is possible that our lessons are fully booked. Important note: It is only possible to book your lessons online four days ahead. Please give us a call if you want to book some lessons spontaneous.

How many days in advanced do we have to book our private teacher?

During high season it is possible that we are fully booked and in this case it is the best way to book in advanced as early as possible. Booking lessons is possible by phone, mail or our website.

At what age can the children attend a course?

We offer ski group courses for children over three years. As a matter of fact, children under three years of age are still not sufficiently independent to feel comfortable in a group. For these children it is also possible to book a private teacher. For the three to five-year-old children we offer 1.5 hours piccolo lesson from Monday to Friday from 2.00 pm / Saturday and Sunday in the morning at 10.00 am. For children over 4 years, there is a 3 hours group lesson in the morning. For snowboarding we have a minimum age of 8 years. Private lessons are also available on request for younger children.

Can the children be together in a group?

We build our groups apart from the age in the first place after the children's ski or snowboard skills. If your children or friends are skiing in about the same way, we would like to ask you to tell us about your wishes on the first day, and we will try our best! However, the child, who is better skiing, would have to take care of the other child or accept to be less advanced group!

How do you divid groups or make groups?

When you visit the Swiss ski school Stoos for the first time we try to build groups according to an oral survey about our ski skills, age and language. Every Monday we build new groups and the children have do some turns to put the children with the same ski level together. However many of our guests visit us every year - so guests who have often been with us. After every five day group course the children are given a certification in their personal ski school book. This certification is also used to help us build our groups. After the first lesson on Monday we sometimes rebuild the groups on Tuesday morning to fit the need and skills better of our guests.

How many children are in a group?

Group lesson Monday - Friday: 5 to 9 person per group Piccolo courses in the afternoon: 3 to 5 children per group.

Is it possible to join the group lesson only on one day?

Our program for the group course is based on the whole week (5 days). However it is possible to book only one day in the group lessons but only for Monday. We recommend you to take at least three days.

Do we have to take the whole 5 days course or can you book less days?

Our program for the groups is set up on a week with ski race and prize giving ceremonie on Friday at 12.45 pm. To keep the level and improv your skill, we recommend to stay in the course for the entire 5 days.

Are there different prizes when we first book a 3 days course and add 2 days to stay the entire 5 day course?

No, there are not. If you book 2 additional days after your 3 day course, it does not cost more than 5 days (CHF 225.-). If you book 5 individually days it costs CHF 245.-.

Can you enter a course during the week?

We recommend to start your ski class on Monday to get the best experience and the maximum of improvement in your skills. Beside we build our groups on Monday. However, it is possible to join an existing group during the week (if the maximum group size is not exceeded) for advanced skiers. This is not possible for beginners. For a 3 day group lesson it is always from Monday to Wednesday.

Do we get our money back, if my child isn’t ready for skiing or does not like it?

If your are not sure wether your child like skiing or not we recommend to book only one day (Monday) or a private lesson in the afternoon. Either way otherwise you could extend it by a further day to keep the "risk" as low as possible! In case of an accident or illness you get your money back if you show us a medical report.
