Perfectly prepared for your first turns

Do you want to really enjoy your skiing days right from the start? Then prepare yourself and your equipment like a pro!

Are you fit for the slopes? If you want to make the most of your skiing days, it's important to know and train your fitness and body awareness. If you regularly take part in sporting activities such as cycling, running, hiking, Nordic walking or training in the gym, you will build up a good basic level of fitness for your winter skiing. This will protect you from injury and make your on-piste and off-piste adventures more fun.

Tip: You can find great videos about ski gymnastics on YouTube that you can do at home. Sports clubs and ski clubs in your area also offer appropriate ski preparation courses. A trial training session is always worthwhile, for acquiring new ideas or new ski buddies!

Check your equipment! As the days get colder, it's high time to dust off your ski equipment after the summer break. Your skis and boards should now be freshly waxed, the edges sharpened, and the binding settings checked. Or have them checked and repaired at a professional ski service centre in Zauchensee.

Make sure that your ski boots, ski goggles, helmet, gloves and clothing are free from defects or breakages and fit youwell. You can find detailed tips on checking your ski equipment here.

Tip: For children, a size check of skis and ski boots is important - if in doubt, it's best to hire suitable skis or boards for your kids on site in order to find out the right length/size. The ski rental shops in Zauchensee and Flachauwinkl are happy to provide you and your family with trial equipment.
