25 years of Skischule Ostrachtal - a success story

What once started with an idea and the love of skiing began to develop into a high standard in the ski school industry , far beyond what the Allgäu had previously been offering ...


Markus Fügenschuh, Hubert Holzheu and Christof Brutscher founded the Skischule Ostrachtal, and started the first season with 20 ski and snowboard instructors.


With around 40 ski and snowboard instructors, a second branch office was opened at the Alpsee ski area.


After 10 years, 70 ski and snowboard instructors are now part of the team.


The "Meckatzer Sportalp" is our new "home" for ski school registration, rental and ski service. A quaint and refined restaurant with a large sun terrace and excellent food, an après-ski bar and much more complete the offer.


On the 23rd of December, we opened Germany's largest kids area with 20,000 m². At the inauguration was the multiple Olympic gold medal winner in biathlon Michael Greis, ski star Felix Neureuther and of course our mascot Isidor.


The construction of our new and state of the art Skicenter is completed. We can proudly look back on 20 years of ski school Ostrachtal at the inauguration. 125 ski and snowboard instructors now take care of up to 100 courses per day.


In addition to the modernization of the entire ski area with three new chairlifts and a new snowmaking system, we also enlarged the "Meckatzer Sportalp" to 200 seats inside and 300 seats outside. In total, 24 million euros were invested!


The "Meckatzer Sportalp" is beeing extended to 200 seats inside and 300 seats outside.

State-of-the-art event technology for image and sound in all rooms make the rustic hut the perfect location for all kind of events.

In the basement you can store your ski equipment safely and comfortably in heated lockers of our new ski depot.
