Black sheep snowboarding

st. Anton am Arlberg

Nothing comes close to a good day of snowboarding! All over the world, the black sheep snowboardschool has collected more than 20 years of experience in snowboard lessons and our specialty off-piste guiding. We are professionals that love snowboarding with the latest snowboard techniques and gear. Our playful lessons are modern, and we adapt our teaching styles to our guests and conditions. The Black sheep bring you to the best locations on epic mountains with the best snow for your skills and soul in our unique way. We focus on quality, that is why we only guide and teach private groups.

Snowboarding is a soul sport that you have to experience and feel to become one with the mountain universe. The Arlberg mountains are our church and are known to be a top freeride and powder location in Austria. This is precisely why we choose the Arlberg as our base. We know the ins and outs, share local knowledge and understand what we do. Our highly educated guides and teachers breathe snowboarding and keep you safe and smiling from ear to ear. Get rid of the masses and do what you always have dreamed of and have a snowboard holiday of a lifetime. After riding with us, you can’t take that grins of your face anymore.

Your chance to get warmed up for a freezing winter! Snowboard Arlberg and Black Sheep Snowboarding are getting their hands dirty for a Snowboard opening at our favorite mountains in Tyrol. The theme of these days is to ride the best possible snow, groomers, and terrain, while we work on your technique and control that you need for a big day out in the mountains you love.

The Arlberg is opening its powdergates on the 2nd of December, Ischgl one week before. And the Glaciers are already running hot into the coldest time of the season. Every day we decide where it's the best riding in desirable conditions in a safe and fun environment. Each day we will drive a maximum of 1 hour and 10 min. to (glacial) resorts like Kaunertal, Pitztal, 20 min. drive Ischgl, or at a 10 min. drive the Arlberg.

Our luxury group accommodation "Haus Arlberg" in Pettneu am Arlberg, a 10. min ski-bus drive from St. Anton has it's own kitchen, cinema (we'll run some snowboard 22 premieres), Playstation, Sauna, Pool Table, Parking-spot, and WIFI.

We aim for 2 snowboard groups and if all goes well 3 groups, so you can ride at your level. Group sizes will be between 4-7 persons, with COVID safety measures to keep everybody healthy.

If the conditions allow it, we ride as much off-piste and powder as possible. A shovel, probe, and beacon are minimal equipment. We strongly recommend a helmet and travel insurance with off-piste coverage.
