ISTA-COURSES - EXCLUSIVE SAFETY FOR
FREERIDERS IN THE ZILLERTAL
Hochfügen is the only ski resort in the Zillertal to offer the internationally recognized ISTA courses.
ISTA stands for International Snow Training Academy and is the first international training program for powder snow and mountain lovers.
ISTA is the only international training program based on a novel method and uses a uniform standardized language worldwide. ISTA offers multi-level training from the occasional off-piste skier to the experienced skier.
The program was developed by over 40 specialists from three continents. It aims to provide optimal preparation for off-piste skiing and risk management. Mountain guides and ski instructors were involved in the design, as were specialists in nutrition, sports psychology, meteorology, snow science, first aid and pedagogy. Thus, not only was the concentrated knowledge about the mountain bundled, but also value was placed on effectively conveying what was learned. Fortunately for us, this works best when we enjoy learning! The playful learning method is accessible to all and the fun does not come too short - after all, you are still on vacation.

The ISTA program is based on a multi-level training. In Hochfügen, the Discovery and ST1 modules are offered.
To ensure that the knowledge can still be called up years after the course, there is an illustrated textbook for each course that summarizes the learning material.
The one-day introductory Discovery course provides the basic knowledge needed to minimize risks off-piste and to act correctly in critical situations. The course is offered in Hochfügen by the local freeride experts of Skicheck, who are ISTA certified after specific training.
The one-day ISTA ST1 training is aimed at experienced off-piste skiers.
The participant learns to assess risks, terrain and snow conditions, but also his own physical and mental characteristics.
