The team of the ski school & snowboard school Snow Experts

„Only quality consists!“

Dear Guests

Welcome to our multi-award winning ski area Kitzbühel / Pass Thurn. Our main office with its own ski rental & snowboard rental is located directly at Pass Thurn, right at the valley station of the 6-seater chairlift Resterhöhe (G1)

Whether beginner, advanced or returners, with us you are in good hands. On the boards that mean the world to us, we give you the joy and fascination of winter sports. Fun and safety is our main motto. For social gathering in the group and with individual care you experience skiing and snowboarding new.

We stand for quality, therefore we try to limit the groups to 8 (maximum of 10) children even in the main season. For all beginners we offer modern and customized practices, which are provided by our best trained instructors to learn skiing in our own practice area.

My name is Manuel Briendl and my skiing career began at the age of 2 ½. I tried my hand at racing in the children's cup and school cup, but soon found my calling as a ski instructor. After the first course to become a candidate ski instructor I caught "fire" and wanted to acquire more and more knowledge and technique of skiing - now I am a certified ski instructor and ski guide. The standard of this long and intensive training is very high and in order to pass on this excellent quality to you, I decided to found a ski school with a team of experts.

Besides winter sports, I love the freedom of paragliding, the adrenaline rush in white water kayaking and the relaxed atmosphere of beach volleyball on the lake 🙂

Super ski school. I had 3 hours of private lessons with Manuel on 2 days and really took a lot with me. The structure of the 2 days suited me and I can say that I spent the rest of the skiing days much more relaxed and effortlessly down the mountains. Thanks for that.
