Totally recommend them
Jan 2021
Although I didn't end up skiing because I sucked at it :D , but outdoor- interlaken provided above and beyond services. Hotel pick up was on time, then they drove us first to their store to get changed and get the skis.
The people in the store were very nice and helped us find the perfect pants, boots and skis. Then we got picked up by Alan, the instructor, and drove us up to the mountain. Alan was super patient with us , and we had an amazing skiing experience.

Amazing Ski experience for Beginners and perfect way to experience the Alps
Dec 2019
My partner and I were in interlaken for 3 days during December and booked a beginner Ski lesson with Outdoor Interlaken. We had an amazing time and highly recommend it as a Must-Do for anyone with minimal skiing experience visiting the Swiss Alps and wishing to see the slopes up close. Everything went smoothly from start to finish with full credit to the fantastic instructors - Anna and Tommy who were absolute legends, really lovely and willing to tailor the lesson as well to give a bit of a challenge to those who wanted it. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer and done a few more days.

Fantastic fun for the whole family!
My family of 6 did the full day private ski lesson for beginners. I was somewhat hesitant to ski here since we are natives of Florida. However, it was an amazing experience and couldn’t have been better. The entire staff at Outdoor Interlaken was super helpful and friendly from booking, ski rental fittings, and transport to and from Grindelwald (including pickup at our hotel). Our lesson was absolutely great, we all learned so much and had an awesome day with our instructor. I highly recommend the entire experience- something my family and I will remember always!

Great Private Instructor
Dec 2019
Matthew was our private instructor for our group of 3. He was really cool, patient and communicated instructions really well. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him and learned how to snowboard. Well, at least the basics of it within the time we had him for which he was really chill about as well. Will def recommend people to use them or just request for Matthew!

Good instructor, but the experience is not well organized
Feb 2019 • Solo
I booked skiing lessons.The instructor was really good, but the whole event was poorly organized. I rented the equipment in Interlaken (since that is where I was staying) and went to ski in Grindelwald. In hindsight I should have stayed in Grindelwald.
I arrived to the shop 3 hours prior to my ski lessons only to find that there was a huge line of people waiting to get in, because the place was closed. After grabbing my gear I was told to walk 2 blocks to take the bus. The bus dropped me at interlaken where I was told my instructor was waiting for me, except my instructor was in a different location, and therefore I had to ask around until I found her. Luckily I can speak the language and therefore was able to find her. After skiing for the 3 hours I had booked I went back to return my gear only to find out the shop was closed and did not open until night, thus I had to walk around in ski boots until the shop opened.
You would think they should be better prepared to handle ski lessons and iron out some of these issues, since they get so many clients.

Another fab experience!
Dec 2018 • Family
After trying to change the kids lesson due to the awful rain, we were told that we couldn’t change it with such short notice. So the children got all kitted out with their equipment with the very helpful staff. The actual lesson was thoroughly enjoyed by our three kids (age 9,11&12), and the rain turned to snow which turned out to be an amazing experience!! The coach, Tommy, was very patient and a good help to the kids, and they really enjoyed their experience. Many thanks!!

We had a great fun day trying snowboard for the first time. That was unfortunately that we signup for Ski but there wasn't enough people to do that, so we could chose between refund or snowboard. We went for snowboard and have no regrets.

Family group lesson

Excellent service and experience! A true concierge experience for equipment rental, transportation and all other arrangements. Very impressed! Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Instructors could be a little bit friendlier and more patient, but overall it was a fantastic experience and would highly recommend Outdoor Interlaken for your next ski trip in Interlaken/Grindelwald.

Great Lessons
Jan 2018 • Friends
I took the Beginners Ski Lessons with Outdoor Interlaken because I don't know Skiing. They have the biggest shop in Interlaken when it comes to adventure sports. They have a wide variety of jackets, shoes, ski equipment, helmets, even cameras & extensions.

Paul was our Ski teacher & he gave some good Ski lessons for sure. I would surely return to Interlaken for more skiing.
