Skiing week-end: For Beginners, Intermediates, Professionals!
Please READ everything!! Check this page regularly!
Welcome to our Ski-Trip in Protected content !
Last year we were 62 people, this year I have reserved 62 spots again.
In order to secure our yearly reservation - I have to start organizing the event already. I have signed all the contracts and I am liable for a little fortune now. So, if you like to participate:
1. read everything
2. follow the instructions
3, PAY! I have to pay the first Protected content on Dec. 4 and the rest soon after.
This trip is organized for beginners, intermediates and professionals. I want to make this trip available to many members, including people with low income (students etc.). So rooms with less people are more expensive than the rooms with more people.
Time: 3 nights – Friday to Monday
The Hotel is nice, clean and has its own Sauna.
A bus stop is directly in front of the house – the bus goes directly (for free) to the Skiing area, to the train station and the Spa in Zell am See (get a ticket).
6:40pm Dinner at the Hotel
7:45pm “Torch - Night Walk” with Lamas and Alpacas (We will be hiking for an hour above the little Town of Kaprun). While enjoying the nice view we will be accompanied by Alpacas and Lamas. You may lead one animal or just take a torch to light the way.
9:00pm pick up of the Skiing tickets, 10 Euro (Hotel Lobby)
Day: Skiing, 3:00pm Après-Ski
8:00pm: Meet & Mingle at the Hotel Bar “a Glass of Prosecco will await you”
9:30pm Walk towards the “Baumbar Kaprun”: Dancing and Drinking
Day: Skiing, 3:00pm Après-Ski
Evening: Protected content
All these times are only suggestions. We are all adults.
Prices: I have added a small amount of money to cover the risks of the organization. If there is (surprisingly) a higher amount left after the trip we shall use this money on a "after skiing event" at a bar.
It is a little bit more expensive than last year: Everything has become more expensive: main season hotel, the skiing passes, prosecco etc..
I think it is still very cheap.

How do we proceed?
1. ROOMS & MONEY: You’ll start with me – check with me what package would be available for you. Once confirmed - wire the money a.s.a.p. to my bank account. We need to be fast I need to transfer an advanced payment to the Hotel by Dec. 04. DO NOT PROCEED TO THE NEXT POINTS UNLESS: I have confirmed your spot and you have wired the money. The first 6 spots will go to beginners. If you are a beginner Protected content IN THE EVENT BEGINNER
2. TRANSPORT: This Trip begins in Kaprun. You are responsible to organize your own ride.
ONLY in February Protected content before):
a. Those of you who will need a ride: post this into the event,
b. those who can offer a ride: post it into the event!!
Costs for Gas are to be shared! Two years ago we had more cars than drivers, last year we had a slight shortage of cars. If coordinated smartly one might be able to work on Friday until lunch time and be back in the office on Monday at lunch time.
Other options: If there are not enough drivers, you may share a big rental car which is not expensive either or you can take the train. Many people took the train last year, which was very easy. Train to Zell am See - Bus to Kaprun (10min bus ride) - the bus stops directly in front of the Hotel.
@ Drivers: Make sure to get to Kaprun on time (takes 4,5h to 5 hours). Rental Store closes at 6pm, Dinner is at 6:40pm. The rental place is only 5 mins away from the Hotel.
3. Ski rental/ Ski service: If you need equipment get in touch with Markus Pfeifer.
Tell him what you will be needing (shoes, skis, helmets etc.). @ Those who own skis: small service/ big service. Last year they turned my skis into very lovely razors again – I was quiet happy with their service. @ everyone: Please make sure to get to the store on Friday evening before 6pm!
4. Beginners: Aaron will arrange the details of your course - Protected content
You’ll be provided with a skiing instructor for Saturday and Sunday. The costs are detailed above.
5. Advanced beginners: we can try to get a course together but we would need 5 people for this.
What is the trip going to be like?
Fun!! We are all coming from different countries, ages, backgrounds so let’s try to be patient, respectful and kind with each other. We are pretty relaxed, so if you want to participate come along.. If you feel like having an afternoon nap or going to the Spa instead of skiing for 3 more hours, feel free to do that. Just make sure to communicate with others about what you will be doing so we don’t find out at 9pm in the evening that you may lay somewhere on the mountain.
The Org Team does not make any money with this event and we all have a “life” so please make the organization of this trip as easy as possible. DO NOT CALL ME unless it is an emergency. You are responsible for yourself,including but not limited to health insurance and any other kind of insurance – we are not guaranteeing anything.
Skiing: We are too many people to ski together (last year: Protected content usually people are skiing together in accordance with their skills and likes, sometimes groups switch after lunch breaks.
a. What if there is no snow?
Last year we had perfect conditions on the mountain Protected content . In case of bad weather = no snow etc. we will turn this trip into a hike and/or Spa week-end. Due to the hight of the glacier/ time of the year the chances of snow are almost 100%.
b. I’ve paid but won’t be able to attend?
The Hotel Cancellation Policy will apply. By the time you have wired your money to me already 50 percent of this money would be gone, by the end of January Protected content . My suggestion: Tell me a.s.a.p. about this and you should try to get a replacement from the waiting list.
You’ll get breakfast and dinner during your stay. We are not paying much for staying there and compared to that the food is very good. The buffet offers various choices including vegetarian food. Please do not use the buffet to prepare lunch.
d.a. The List is full?
State in the event "Waiting list" and I will put you on the waiting list. Last year I was able to get 20 people from the waiting list on the trip. Please mention if you are a beginner.
d.b. I am on the waiting list what now?
I have good news – last year I was able to take many people from the waiting list with us, due to cancellations etc.. Otherwise I would encourage you to find another Hotel in Kaprun for this time.
e. I am not interested in the event anymore before I have payed?
Please sign off this event. Thank you!!
@ Everyone: Please check this event page and our messages regularly. Sorry if I do sound rather strict but due to our experiences from the last years we have to be a little determined on some things.
Many people at Internations told us that it would be impossible to organize such a trip – so far we have managed successfully to organize this 4 times.
Sorry, but you are not allowed to join this Activity Group!
We are afraid that you cannot join, because the Group Consuls have limited access to this Activity Group.
