Language skills in the snow
Welcome to the ski school Maria Alm! Willkommen in der Skischule Maria Alm! Bienvenue à l‘école de ski Maria Alm! Benvenuti nella scuola di sci Maria Alm! Welkom bij de skischool Maria Alm! Velkommen til skiskolen Maria Alm!
Let’s face the truth: people hardly understand the Austrian dialect, not to mention the regional dialect of Pinzgau. However, our guests come from all over the world since they want to learn skiing at the ski school Maria Alm. What can we do to avoid language barriers? We speak the languages of our guests, and we have been doing this in a professional way for quite a while now
by hiring ski instructors from other countries who would love to talk to you in their mother tongue.
Our ski instructors come from all over the world. One of the main reasons why they come to the ski school Maria Alm to work as ski instructors is the possibility to spend super cool winters in Maria Alm. Perfectly: you’ve killed two birds with one stone. The language skills of our welltravelled ski instructors are a recognisable quality feature, which we love to foreground. In all group courses, the ski instructors talk in German and in English. For kidsbeginners (up to 12 years in group courses) we additionally guarantee lessons in Dutch and Danish.
We offer you private skiing courses in 10 different languages: Dutch, Danish, French, Spanish, Italian, Czech, Russian or Hungarian. However, here we have some limitations: namely, according to availability and only with confirmation! So book your course early enough and check the availability, then you can enjoy great private lessons in the language of your choice!
“For some years now, I have been a master ski instructor at the Maria Alm Ski School and must say: the best job that you can imagine as a winter sports fan. I love being able to teach people the most beautiful sport in the world, and if the guests are from my home country and I can talk to them in my mother tongue, that is really something very special, it’s just that homesickness, which comes up in my mind …!”
David Spunda, Czeck republican ski instructor in the Maria Alm ski school
