Key Details about the Course


We stay in a hotel with Wifi and all the basic necessities. You can expect to live with 2-5 people per room or apartment. While this may not sound fancy, that’s “mountain luxury” for you.  

At Snowminds, “we take care of our own”. That’s why we specifically only work with hotels that make healthy and nutritious food. Breakfast typically consists of a large, nutritious buffet. Dinner will either be a 3-course meal or a buffet with soup, salad, main course and dessert. In short, no one goes to bed hungry with us!

Lift pass

If you take the course in March you maybe already have a liftpass for Salzburger Super Skicard. This can be used on all  resorts in Salzburgerland inclued Kitzsteinhorn gletcheren, where the course will be placed. In this case you do not need to buy an extra lift pass.


If you do not have your own lift pass, you can purchase a lift pass which will be delivered on arrival.


To ensure all our instructors receive the highest quality education, we work together with the Salzburger Berufskilehrer & Snowboardlehrer Verband (SBSSV), one of the world’s most recognized ski instructor organizations.

The Landes education with SBSSV will build on your Anwärter and focus primarily on more performance-based boarding. With a passed Landes exam, you stand with an instructor certificate in hand that allows you to teach experienced snowboarders. Regardless of whether the education has been passed or not, a marked development on the board can be felt!

The education is one of the most recognized in the world. By passing your Landes, your certificate of excellence will not only be valuable on your CV, but can also be used for other Snowminds destinations around the world.
