Gramshammer first introduced Wedel Weeks in 1985, which
has since been a very successful ski training program
in the Austrian tradition. The term "wedel"
refers to a type of short, stylized ski turn. The aim
of Pepi's Wedel Weeks is to get each person in shape for
the coming season by working hard on the technique of
intermediate through advanced skiers. The program is run
by Pepi Gramshammer, along with some of Vail's finest ski instructors.
It brings people together with other energetic and serious skiers
for a week of strong ski instruction and social activities.
Pepi's Wedel Weeks is for accomplished skiers, people
who love the sport and who plan to ski more than just
a few days each season. The program focuses around small
groups of skiers with similar skill levels, ranging from
intermediate to advanced. If you can comfortably ski many
of the blue runs on Vail Mountain, you'll fit right in.
Should you ski below this level, we'll organize separate
ski school classes for you, but still within the Wedel
Weeks program and price. Wedel Weeks is not for beginners.
No matter what your level, we guarantee you'll be a better
skier by the end of the program.
What makes our program special is that you get top quality
instruction in an atmosphere that encourages having fun
while meeting people from all over the world. You'll come
away with great memories, new friendships and a better
ability to handle the mountain. Participants in our programs
are part of a growing family of friends that seem to come
back year after year.
