Dear Guests,

Welcome to the Schneesportschule Schauinsland in the Black Forest! We offer a friendly setting for learning how to ski, snowboard, and cross-country ski. Located right outside the city of Freiburg and far away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, you'll find our practice slope and Kinderland. We recommend a Snowshoeing Tour through the magical winter landscape of the Black Forest to those who don't yet wish to don skis or hop on a board. My team, made up of 30 professionals certified by the German Ski Instructors' Association, is looking forward to meeting you!

Skis, shoes, and a helmet. Poles are not necessary for the beginner's course. Skis must be fitted to the shoes. Don't forget to bring water-resistant clothing and gloves. Equipment can also be rented or bought in our shop.

Snowboard, boots, and helmet. The snowboard must be fitted to the boots. Don't forget to bring water-resistant clothing and gloves. Equipment can also be rented or bought in our shop.

We'll privde you with snowshoes and poles. Don't forget ankle-high, water-tight shoes, and weather-proof clothing.

We'll closely supervise children and young adults for free during the all-day courses. Lunches are taken together before ski and snowboarding courses are resumed. Food and drink are not included in the price of courses.

Lift tickets can be obtained directly at the Notschrei ski lift. Please buy lift tickets before the start of courses! An overview of prices can be found here. Season passes are often cheaper for children.

Because of its snow machines and ideal location, Notschrei is one of the safest bets for snow among winter sport areas in southwest Germany. Detailed information about conditions on the slopes can be obtained at the lift or by telephone at +49 (0) 7602 399, or at the Schneesportschule Schauinsland at +49 (0) 7602 288.

No, not as of yet, but we're working on it. Our shop and rental service is located 5 minutes by car from the lift. The directions can be found here.

Yes, absolutely. Our trade-in scheme is very popular, especially among families. Simply buy (used) skis, shoes, and poles before the beginning of the season. If you or your children outgrow the equipment, we'll then put its value toward the purchase of new items. In this way, skis, shoes, and poles, as well as snowboards and boots, grow with your children.
