The 'hof is the perfect place to learn to board or ski - the ski school boasts a wealth of qualified (and dishy) instructors with daily lessons, and there are countless gentle slopes to fall on your bum at first... Make your SB experience complete and learn to ski or board with us!
Without one of these bad boys, you'll be unable to access the mountain at all - whether you want to session the early morning groomers, head up the Hintertux glacier, sit back in some high altitude sun loungers or crack on with our incredible piste parties, one of these is essential!
