Thank you very much for the fantastic course at Zugspitze. The best thing was that even after three days of skiing my knees didn’t hurt!!! Up until now my knees have hurt every time I skied off-piste or through moguls. I’ve got Arthritis. The only remedy for me has been to ski on the piste for a few days or sit out completely. But after skiing for a few days with you, I didn’t even feel the slightest ting of pain. I love it, because now I enjoy skiing again. Flat pistes are just not my thing! A big compliment to Michi. He was very good at explaining and demonstrating the ABS technique, and his tips were invaluable. Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to thank him personally. I had to leave early and didn’t stay in the same hotel as everyone else. That’s why I decided to thank him this way. All the best,

Best wishes from Munich. It’s the day after the end of the course. I’d like to thank everyone for the last two days. What I’m thankful for? For something I hadn’t expected – that I was able to ski for two days in a controlled way in my favourite terrain: off-piste. I’m thankful for the fun I had slowly getting more confident on the slopes which had scared me at first. For Helmut Stern’s continual help and patience. Even though he had the flu, he was cracking jokes. I’d like to thank him for being so patient with me, a complete beginner. He turned me from someone who spent more time on his butt than skiing into someone who enjoys skiing. I’d like to thank everyone for the relaxed atmosphere and the camaraderie in the group. I’m thankful that the technique was so simple and easy to remember. Thanks to you I’m looking forward to spending more time in the mountains knowing that I’ll enjoy it, I’m aware of things and I ski responsibly. I’ve hardly ever had so much fun doing a course than doing this one. Thanks again. I’ll be back for the next “round” – I’d like to practice what I’ve learned.
All the best and see you soon.

We did the powder ski course at Zugspitze (06./07.01.2008) All I can say is: It was GREAT, FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT! A big compliment to our coach Billy. We had a great time in his group. We hadn’t expected to learn that much in such a short period of time. In the beginning, it felt a bit weird not using the skiing technique that we had been using for 25 years. But now we ask ourselves, “Why did we labour for 25 years with the other technique? It’s so much easier with the ABS technique!” In short, it was a wonderful weekend. We’re planning on doing more skiing off-piste than on-piste in the future (we find skiing on the piste almost boring now).
All the best,

Hello, Ms Garhammer, I wanted to get back to you and let you know that it was an extraordinary weekend for us and that we were impressed by your team – Uli was and is fantastic coach! Everything was perfect and we had an unforgettable experience – simply unbelievable!!! I’ve sent you a few pics as well!
Happy skiing and all the best to Ernst & Uli!

Dear Ernst and Sandra Garhammer. My husband Egon and I, Chistl Zink, wanted to thank you for the excellent course and the brilliant but simple Garhammer technique, which anyone can learn. We had a wonderful week, and it was over far too quickly. I’d especially like to thank our coach Helmut. Thanks to his patience and his warm and friendly manner, we were able to overcome our fear of the terrain. I don’t think that we would have been able to do it without him. I think we had the best coach from your team. Now I can ski down any slope, no matter how steep it is. And I know how to ski at an adequate, comfortable pace and with a perfect technique. It’s such an amazing feeling. Thank you, Helmut!! Thanks for everything.
All the best and till next time,
Christl and Egon Zink

Dear Ernst, a big compliment for the organisation, execution and supervision of last week’s skiing course. I’d especially like to compliment your coach Helmut who made it possible for me, a disaster on skis, to enjoy skiing by teaching me the ABS technique. I’m already planning to book a course for next year and I’m thinking about taking my daughter along.
Thank you again and all the best for the future.
Here’s some feedback for the freeride course with Sebastian last weekend. I thought the course was great, and so did my son Carlo. He is an interesting target group. He loved Sebastian and Johan. Not only is Sebastian talented, but he’s also got charisma which impresses children of Carlos’s age. In addition to that he is humble and has got a positive attitude. Carlo has met quite a few people in his life, and he’s travelled a lot. But when he met Sebastian, he was almost in awe of him. I’d never seen that with him. He said, “Mummy, I’d like to have a friend like him.” He also loved Johan, and he enjoyed speaking English. The other boys in his group, including the older ones, felt the same. To sum it up: We are definitely going to do more courses with Sebastian and Johan. Carlos’s friends are also ready to go!
All the best, Ruth
