Social event for Tuesday afternoon March 10
On Tuesday, March 10, we plan a sledding trip to Oberperfuss close to Innsbruck. Two gondolas will take us uphill where you will have a short introduction on how to handle your sledge. And then you can enjoy a 2.5 km ride downhill (with as many repeats as you want and time permits)! To warm up again we have organized a small get together before the bus will bring you back to Innsbruck.
A complimentary shuttlebus service will be available in the afternoons to transfer interested participants to the "Axamer Lizum". Please indicate in the online travel form if you would like to rent skiing gear. Further, electronic half-day ski tickets valid from 1-4 pm at the Axamer Lizum can be purchased in cash (Euros only) on a daily basis at the hotel reception desk. The discounted rate for participants for a half day ticket is EUR 21,- . Private skiing lessons for beginners are possible - please contact "Ski und Snowboard Schule Innsbruck"!
The ski rental "Die Börse" located in Innsbruck can be used to rent ski equipment. On March 7th & 8th, we provide a free shuttle service to the ski rental shop. The equipment can be stored in the hotel (special room) during the whole course. Please indicate in the travel form if you would like to rent skiing gear.
