The Nova courses offers something for everyone, regardless of your ability.
Starting in the 23/24 season, we are offering you a course system that is recognized throughout Switzerland with the Ridersystem.
The system will help you to find the right course. When you have completed a level, the allocation to the next course is also made much easier.
We work with the three main groups – kids land courses, beginner courses and advanced courses.
The children’s area is for our little ones – from 2.5 to 3 years. We have four different course styles, all of which are taught in a friendly and playful way by our specially qualified ski instructors. In our own children’s area, they are introduced to skiing by our trained children’s ski instructors.
Beginners are very important to us. In our beginners courses, we offer young and old ideal teaching.
In our advanced courses, students are taught in grades. Grades 1-3 offer pupils the chance to advance from competent to very good skiers. These courses also form the basis for our specialist courses. Here it is possible to diversify into Allround, piste freestyle, Air & Park, carving and freeride further.
In Kids Land, even the youngest children will be taught with the latest methods by trained children’s ski instructors. These courses are taught in a playful way, so that the children have fun and make progress.
