During the ski season we run weekly bus daytrips to the Austrian Alps, except for the weekends where we already have a long trip.
See the Events tab for dates and provisional locations. Note that dates are fixed but 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 partying our way back to Munich.
See the Trips & Events tab to sign up for a daytrip.
In case of changes (such as adding guests), cancellations, or other problems, please contact email@example.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 will be forced to cancel the trip – minimum of 35 participants is required to run a daytrip.
Payment is made at the time of booking. Cash payment on the bus is not possible. Members have booking priority in the case of a popular trip.
Prices: Members: 79 €, Associates: 89 €. 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. (We realize that the prices have gone up significantly... for ski tickets as well as for the bus.)
There is a transport-only fee for those with season passes: Members: 20 €, Associates: 30 € .
For children, please book them as adults and you will be refunded the difference in lift ticket price following the trip.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for cancellations or any changes to your registration. Cancellation fee is 15 Euros up until the Thursday before the trip - after that there is no refund possible. We need to do this unfortunately because a small number of people register for daytrips to reserve a place for themselves and then decide later if they really want to go – apart from being unfair to other members, this causes a lot of work for daytrip captain and treasurer.
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.
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)!
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: 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.
