Daytrip Info

During the ski season we run weekly bus daytrips to the Austrian Alps.

See the Events tab for dates and locations. Dates are fixed; locations are occasionally changed at the discretion of the trip captain depending upon snow conditions.

On the trips indicated as Apres Ski we will stay at the resort for around an hour after the lifts close to provide some time for drinking together in the local snow bars. We’ve chosen the closer destinations so we can still be back in Munich for around 19:00 – 19:30 (traffic permitting of course).

The last trip of the year is usually to a glacier to ensure we have great snow conditions. We’ll have a party by the bus before heading back (food and drink provided while it lasts!) There’s an extra 10 Euro charge to cover the food, drink and Glacier pass.

Signing up

See the Events tab to sign up for a daytrip.

In case of changes (such as adding guests), cancellations, or other problems, please contact daytrips@munichskiclub.com

Please sign up by the end of the Wednesday before the trip – if we don’t get sufficient signups by end of Wednesday we may be forced to cancel the trip. A minimum of 23 participants is required to run a daytrip.

After you sign up you will receive an invoice. If this is more than three days before the trip, pay this electronically; if you sign up from the Wednesday before the trip it’s best to pay cash on the bus.

Members have priority when signing up

Members have priority with bookings until a week before the trip. Associates may only sign up after this, and guest registrations may be cancelled in favour of members. (For special guests, such as friends visiting you in Munich and wanting to go skiing with you, drop the Daytrip Captain an email to let him/her know.)

Prices

Members: 50 Euro. Guests and Associates: 65 Euro. Price includes the bus ride and the lift ticket (with its deposit) – you keep the deposit when you return the ticket to the ticket office. Children: Reduction, depending upon the resort – initially pay the full amount, the reduction refund will be given back to you.

Cancellation

Contact daytrips@munichskiclub.com for cancellations or any changes to your registration. Once you have registered for a daytrip you’ve committed to going and the full payment is due immediately. If you cancel you still owe 15 Euro deposit per attendee, and if you simply don’t show up you owe the full amount and can lead to being banned from future trips. We need to do this unfortunately because a number of people register for daytrips to reserve a place for themselves and then decide later if they really want to go, expecting that they can just cancel – apart from being unfair to other members, this causes a lot of work for daytrip captain and treasurer and reducing this workload means that it’s more likely there will be someone willing to run daytrips next year.

 Meeting Point and Departure Time

The meeting point is the Giesing Bahnhof. The bus will depart at 06:45 so you need to be there for 06:30 or to allow loading time. The name of the bus company is Geldhauser and it should be parked in the bus station.

Emergency phone number

During the daytrip you can reach the trip captain on a special number: +49 163 84 727 38. Save this (new!) number to your mobile(handy)!

Ski/snowboard hire/lessons

The club does not organise ski hire or lessons. But don’t worry if you are not too experienced: you can either hire for the weekend from shops in munich (Schuster, Sportscheck & Kaufhof usually have skis for hire at a good price) or hire when we arrive at our destination. The resorts we visit generally have both ski hire and teaching facilities and it’s usually possible for individual skiers to arrange lessons on the day. Check www.bergfex.com for further details.

Risk/Insurance

Risk/Insurance: Taking part in a ski club event is done at your own risk, just like taking part in an event with friends; these are club trips, not commercial trips. The club and its representatives does not take responsibility for the actions of its members and does not have insurance to cover injury, or damage to or loss of your property. In particular, if you go skiing/boarding on a club trip it is highly recommended that you make sure you are insured for mountain rescue; note that this is not covered by normal medical insurance in Germany, and in the unlikely event that you need one a helicopter ride can be very expensive.
