The Austrian Ski Federation has established the Ski Austria Academy to offer ambitious hobby skiers the opportunity to develop their snow skiing techniques under the tuition of professional ski instructors. The Ski Austria Academy is situated in scenic St. Christoph and participants can look forward to the ultimate mountain snow skiing experience in the most beautiful settings.

Professional ski training together with the high-tech sport infrastructure available at St. Christoph in Austria, plus brand new top class accommodation, all blend together perfectly to offer a skiing holiday concept that is proving to be very successful. Any skier that wants to improve technique and style will find all the assistance needed at the Ski Austria Academy.

Skiing techniques and methods of instruction have been developed and improved at the former “Bundessportheim St. Christoph” since 1923. When the Austrian Skiing Federation took over this centre, they undertook to modernize and renovate it completely and a new skiing competence centre was created. The Austrian Skiing Federation is continuously working on ways of introducing professional ski racing skills and techniques into leisure skiing, enabling participants to benefit from the expertise of world-class skiers. The Ski Austria Academy also serves a pivotal role in the education of skiing instructors.

Ski Academy Austria has twenty highly qualified skiing instructors who give personal assistance to participants with the goal of helping them to improve skills in daily snow skiing sessions. Apart from focused special technical courses, participants will have the opportunity each day to just have fun on the slopes under supervision of the instructors. The training and free time usually takes up about five hours of the day. If anyone still has any energy that they need to burn up, a fully equipped gym is available. Otherwise a rooftop sauna with incredible mountain views will relax those tired muscles. End off the day with a drink at the bar, followed by a freshly prepared meal, a good night’s rest – then you will be ready for another day’s invigorating snow skiing at the Ski Austria Academy.

Why not take some time out to enjoy the breath-taking beauty of St. Cristoph and join in the fun of perfecting your snow skiing skills at the Ski Austria Academy – you will be glad that you did.
