Best place to learn Sky/snow board around Zurich

Hi,

Can someone suggest me a good place to take my kids for some ski lessons, around my place? We live in Bülach, close to the airport...

The best setup would be a place close enough to allow me to return home at the end of the day.

Thanks,

Gustavo

Typical answer, unfortunately... And since I forgot to search, I guess I deserved it...

Really, my bad, but why is so hard to be nice?

I will search now, of course... close topic...

Thanks anyway...

Useless discussion, but you were not "nice" at all... and BTW, calling me (or anyone else) lazy would be disrespectful, rude...

Re: Best place to learn Sky/snow board around Zurich

gfadel - don't get upset- it is just not worth it. Some of us are NOT forum experts, and have no idea about search functions, etc. Why people have to make sarky comments to newbies, I'll never know.

Anyway - why not introduce yourself in the intro section - you might find that many here will be very friendly and helpful - yes, even if a question has been asked before. Happy skiing - sadly I do not know your area- but from memory, Flummsberg (sp?) is the place for beginners.

I will be more than happy to save your search time.
Try Oberiberg its around 15 mins closer than Hoch Ybrig, its brilliant for novices.
The car park (its free) is right by the ski school which runs different age group lessons simultaniously.
The slopes there are well suited to bigginers, and its not ussually as busy a lot of other resorts.
Its a very low key friendly piste.

Thanks, I've been there before some years ago, but I wasn't sure if they have the lessons... I will check it then.

You never know - you might one day snowboard with a fat 60 year old grand-mother, lol. Won't do much for your kudos, but hey
