I arrived at Mayrhofen hoping to iron some snowboarding bad habits and to get back on skis after a 23 year hiatus.
Lawrence quickly identified a number of bad habits in my boarding and stepped through how to improve my riding. Transitioning to skiing for the next 3 days was a huge leap into the almost unknown.
Ivan delivered astonishing results and had me hurtling down a black run with confidence within 90 minutes!!
I can’t praise Habeler’s teaching and back-office staff highly enough – friendly, knowledgeable and able to deliver bespoke and flexible solutions at the drop of the hat.
Without a doubt this is the most professional and caring ski company I have ever had the pleasure of skiing with. The quality and a personal approach is exceptional from the first time you enquire at the office (Lesley), the boss (Chris) making sure you are happy with the service you are getting and you are in the right group for your ability, to the individual ski instructors (we had Piter) who provided a fun filled entertaining week.
I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone of any ability, I will definitely use Ski School Habeler when I’m in Mayrhofen next time.
As a added bonus to being a very good company they are all very nice helpful people as well. Fantastic.
"Wir wollten nochmal persönlich DANKE sagen. Die 2 Tage haben sich echt gelohnt. Gestern hat uns Clemens perfekt die Basics gezeigt - und heute hat die Kombi "Wetter und Micha" uns bestätigt, dass wir die richtige Wahl der Ski-Schule getroffen haben.
Wir sind heute tolle Pisten mit Micha gefahren - machen das nicht oft, aber müssen echt sagen: Für zwei "Berliner Rookies" genau das richtige. Sie ist wunderbar auf jeden von uns persönlich eingegangen. Eure Skischule werden wir definitiv weiterempfehlen !! Das gesamte Team ist super und ihr seid total sympathisch.
Danke für die Zeit bei euch und nochmal bitte ganz großes Lob an Micha - gerne weiterleiten.
Liebe Grüße aus dem Hotel Elisabeth (mit schweren Beinen und Armen- quasi ganz Körper-Muskelkater ..aber total happy ;)
We just wanted to say a big thank you to you and Bjorn for your excellent service and tuition on Saturday. We both had a really great time during the lesson and Jonny went on to tackle a red run on his skis (with only one fall!) that same afternoon. Bjorn was an excellent instructor and we found him really easy to work with.
The emails beforehand and your extremely helpful approach made it a really easy smooth, easy process for us. Thank you so much. I have recommended you to some friends of mine who are thinking of coming to Mayrhofen later in the season.

"Just wanted to send you a quick note the complement your company on the excellent service you provided our party last week.
Our instructor was excellent.
Two of us in the party had had lessons before but we learnt more in two hours with your private coach than we had learned in 5 days with our other instructor!
Thank you for making our experience in Mayrhofen so enjoyable and rest assured that when we visit again we will be booking more lessons!"
"I returned from a week ski holiday in Mayrhofen on Saturday having had 5 days instruction from Skischule Habeler. It was without doubt the best tuition and experience one could hope for. Our instructor was excellent."
"Ich wollte mich nur noch einmal bedanken. Erstens und vor allem hat es mir grossen Spass gemacht, bei euch das Skifahren zu lernen. Zweitens habe ich wirklich etwas gelernt - nicht nur Technik, sondern auch Selbstvertrauen am Berg. Hoffentlich schaffe ich es nächste Saison wieder zu euch. Der Parallelschwung ist noch nicht ganz ausgereift - aber ein paar Saisons habe ich in meinem Leben wohl noch, um das hinzubekommen. :)"
"I would like to thank you for the very professional lessons provided to us by Peter and Michaela. They are excellent coaches.
We really enjoyed the time spent in Mayrhofen and are happy that came to your ski school! I wish all the best to your school and to you and Maria personally, next visit to Mayrhofen we will come back to you to improve our skills and will recommend your school to our friends."
"A big thank you for arranging skiing lessons for us. Ilya was fantastic and demonstrated excellent teaching skills - and a lot of patience!! A special thank you to Bjorn who got us all skiing in just a few days, and restored my confidence. His tutoring was fabulous and truly worthy of recommendation to others. A good laugh too! A very friendly and professional ski school, which made for a good environment to learn a new skill."
"Just wanted to email and say a big thank you for a great week at ski school last week. Anna was amazing and had so much patience with us.
We will definitely request Anna again and would highly recommend her as a ski instructor to anyone.
"In preparation for our first ever skiing adventure I emailed almost every ski school in the Zillertal area. Everyone who responded provided little information or guidance except for Chris and Maria! Their emails were detailed, to the point, very helpful and the most important point, their response time was very quick.
On the day Chris greeted me like an old friend and introduced us to our instructors (Misha & Ivan). Chris also checked in with me over the couple of days making sure everything was OK. Misha and Ivan were great instructors and were extremely knowledgable and supportive.
This is a great ski school in a great location and would highly recommend it to anyone who is skiing for the first time or needs to refine their skills. Hoping one day I will be back in Mayrhofen!"
"An exceptionally brilliant experience. My first week on ski's on snow, and this school was perfect for me. My instructor Bjorn was patient, positive, encouraging, and everything you would want from a consummate and skilled professional imparting knowledge and information and helping one to learn a new skill. His ability to explain what I needed to do, to help me, to show and instruct so well has seen me progress from nursery slope to Red Run in 5 days.
It;s hard work, lessons every day and practice every afternoon, but so much fun to learn and such an achievement.. I was DREADING doing this.
And now I can ski, calmly, confidently, and most importantly, safely. It has been so much fun now. I cannot recommend the school highly enough. To be clear. I am 42. I do no activities, I consider myself unfit, and have not been on ski's on snow before. This has been an exceptionally brilliant experience, and while Mayrhofen is beautiful, my time here has been amazing thanks to Bjorn my instructor at Skischul Habeler and Chris and his team."
"Fantastic lessons with Ivan, never knew skiing could be as Easy with so little effort!! "
