The concept Move smart! from ski superstar Felix Neureuther in every ski course at the Schauinsland snow sports school!

With the concept Move smart! Children not only learn how to ski in a playful way, but also develop and train their brains at the same time!

Skiing is ideal for doing something good for your brain while having lots of fun!

The coordination skills are commonly considered to be the “sports equivalent” of the central nervous system. And which sport is more demanding than skiing in terms of coordination? Sporting requirements are particularly useful for the brain when the students have to consciously control their behavior, i.e. they have to use their heads to cope.

Nature with its infinitely varied impressions, the high oxygen content in the mountains and the social interaction provide the remaining ingredients that make the ski course the perfect place for Be smart! by Felix Neureuther.
