Our Smiley Company

We are ski and snowboarding instructors, ski and mountain guides, nursery school teachers and children’s ski-instructors. In fact, however, we quite simply do what we love doing. We are lucky enough to be able to earn our living with our hobbies.

In our team, there are not only ski-instructors, snowboarding instructors and outdoor guides, but also our highly competent office staff, supervisors and all-round good sorts who enable the skiing courses to run smoothly, from the bookings to the prize-giving ceremony.

An experienced team are here for you, with the best qualifications. From State-certified ski and snowboarding instructors with diplomas, to mountain and ski guides; trainers, to cross-country skiing and telemark ski-instructors – with us, you and your loved ones are in excellent hands.

We say “Quality has many faces...”

By this we mean that each member of our staff team has unique qualities which are deployed on site. Whether this is their skiing ability, social skills, their ability to work with children, or even a language – we want to allocate exactly the right snow sports instructor for you or your children, out of our huge pool of employees.

The aim of our quality standard is to be the best skiing school in Obertauern!

Regular training and the ongoing professional development of our ski and snowboarding instructors is a norm. Therefore, we can always guarantee the best quality instruction. In-house training, practice runs and new fun methods of learning basic techniques – only practice makes perfect. Extensive experience bears fruit and therefore, we are a competent partner in all fields. Our in-house CSA Staff Academy, established in 2013, is very successful, offering our staff high quality training courses throughout the winter, free of charge. 

A pool of over 150 staff!

Since in recent years, the national origins of our client base have changed, we have built up a pool of over 150 ski-instructors from various European Union countries and so ski-instruction in our region is a fantastic experience for all our clients.

We teach through the medium of Hungarian, Slovenian, Polish, Croatian, Czech, Russian, Dutch, Danish, French, Spanish, Swedish, Italian and of course, English.
