Ski school manager
„Guests should become friends, with whom we may experience unforgettable moments in nature“
Stefan Volgger, a ski instructor, ski instructor trainer, mountain and ski tour guide, has been managing Stefan's Ski & Snowboard School successfully for 25 years. As passionate skier, he enjoys riding slopes and off-piste privately or with guests. Continuous education makes him a perfect contact person for alpine sport.
Chief ski instructor
„The continuous education of youngsters is a wish close to my heart!“
As ski instructor and employed at the federal sport facility at Kitzsteinhorn, Hans was dedicated from the beginning. His key function at the Ski & Snowboard School is the organization of the children's section.
Ski school organisation
"The only way to make a good job, is to love what you do."
Sabine's responsibilities lie with the smooth workflow backstage as well as at the forefront of Stefan's Ski & Snowboard School for more than ten years. In winter you will mostly find her at our ski school office S2. A few years ago she decided to make her passion into a profession. She is also a ski instructor and in summer a mountain hiking guide.
Contact person at the ski school office
"It makes me happy to see returning guests at our Ski & Snowboard School!"
Tom, also ski instructor, is responsible for sales and schedules. For many years he has been an important part of the ski school. In winter you will mostly find him at our ski school office at Pass Thurn. In the summer months he spends his time as a lodge landlord at Senninger Bräu-Alm situated in beautiful Hollersbachtal.
"I cannot imagine my life without my passion for ski sports!"
Hans is an enthusiastic skier and because of his former job as downhill racer and ski technician he traveled the world during the ski world cup with the Austrian National Team. He is a master in servicing skies - therefore, guests can enjoy their experience to the fullest.
"My target is to work on technical details while having fun with the exercise!"
Traudi is a ski instructor and has been part of our ski school since many years. She is sporty and close to nature. When teaching she is patient and takes much pleasure in perfecting her guests techniques. In summer you may find her guiding you around in the National Park Hohe Tauern.
"Life is an adventure - get involved!"
Gabi, a “Pinzgau original” joined the ski school some years ago as a ski instructor and is looking forward to each coming ski season! Because of her funny and bubbly nature she is mostly teaching teenager and children's courses. Gabi loves nature, and during her leisure time she hikes in the mountains. In winter you will find her alpine touring and in summer mountaineering.
"It´s never too late to learn something new!"
Mariella, former Austrian downhill racer, ski instructor, ski guide and daughter of Hans, our main ski instructor, is a professional in terms of ski sports. She is looking forward to sharing her knowledge and experience with our ski & snowboard school's guests. Mariella achieved her best results in the Super G and in downhill skiing and is fully committed to our “local” slopes.
"Future ski lodge evenings are part of the skiing experience!"
Georg from picturesque Felbertal can be proud of his long ski instructor career. As experienced ski instructor and excellent deep snow skier he claims many of his protégés as regular guests or even calls them friends. Next to his private lessons Georg is in charge of the adult courses. He always has some knowledge to share and the right joke to tell.
"I am a passionate hunter and skier!"
While hunting or on the slopes Fritz is always calm! He is, as many of us, a nature loving person and knows all trails or hidden paths in our region. Because of his calm nature and his ski knowhow all beginners are in good hands. You can find Fritz in our adult instruction area at Pass Thurn.
"A day without laughing is a lost day!"
Katrin is an educated music school teacher and spends her leisure time in the nature with mountain climbing, running and skiing. Especially our little guests like her symphatetic personality. To teach children skiing playfully with fun and joy is important to her. You can meet Katrin also at the cross-country ski tracks, where she shares her knowledge with our customers.
"Lieber etwas riskieren, als ewig zu bereuen, sich nicht getraut zu haben."
Bereits während Ihrer Schul- und Ausbildungszeit hat Jessi an ihren freien Tagen des öfteren unser Team im Kinderland mit viel Engagement unterstützt. Sie selbst hat mit 5 Jahren am Pass Thurn das Skifahren gelernt und freut sich heute, Ihr Können an unsere kleinen Gäste weiter zu geben. Spaß und Freude dürfen dabei natürlich nicht zu kurz kommen, denn aus eigener Erfahrung weiß sie, die 1. Schilehrerin im Leben vergißt man nie!
"Schi fahren ist nicht nur eine Leidenschaft, sondern ein Lebensgefühl"
In eine Skilehrer-Familie hinein geboren, führte auch sie diese Tradition weiter. Schon neben der Schule machte Verena die Ausbildung zur Skilehrerin und merkte schnell, dass die Freude mit Menschen zu arbeiten und ihnen etwas Neues beizubringen genau das ist, was diesen Beruf auszeichnet und was sie gerne tut. Neben Englisch hat sie sich auch im Laufe der Zeit die niederländische Sprache angeeignet. Sie ist fest davon überzeugt, dass die richtige Technik beim Skifahren nicht nur ein besseres Gefühl und mehr Sicherheit bringt, sondern auch um einiges mehr Spaß!
