Parallel Skiing

Ski Course in English with Short Ski Method


  • Thinking about learning to ski?
  • Expat in Munich?
  • Or German wanting to learn to ski and improve your English?
  • Looking for an English-speaking ski course?
  • You have a fear of skiing and have given up at learning to ski?


Parallel Skiing's adult beginner ski course is the answer. It takes place over the first 6 weekends of the new year, leaving from Munich and skiing in Austria. The ski course uses the Short Ski Method, or graduated length method, which means in just three weekends adult beginners move from never having worn skis to being confident around the whole mountain.

With short skis and the graduated length method you learn direct parallel turn from the first day, and so you never need to unlearn the snow plough. How Ken Lawler happened upon the graduated length method.


At Parallel Skiing everything’s organized for you, transport, lodging, ski equipment, ski passes, and ski lessons. Before your Ski course you must come to an InfoEve for bootfitting, then you just turn up and have fun on the ski course.


We also have Kids Ski Courses for kindergarten age, bzw. Zwergerl Skikurse für den Kindergarten-alter, in December and February which use extremely short skis and use the parents in the ski course.

Direct Parallel Turn from the Beginning

Parallel Turn from the beginning

Maryland didnt have time to finish her ski course in 2016 but is already singing praises to Parallel Skiing in her blog about her adventures. She returns to finish her ski course in the 2017 Season.

Hi Ken,

I have a personal blog about my adventures, and I recently wrote about the things I did to survive my first winter. And one of the things I did (and I am really happy that I did it) was to learn how to ski. Thanks to Parallel Skiing Munich for the amazing experience! I am enrolling again this year to improve and to finish my third weekend. I cannot wait to ski with you guys soon.





It was a great experience learning to ski from you and your team.


Compared to snowboarding, it was a walk in the park, but I am pretty sure that this was possible because of the great teachers I had. I do hope you will continue doing this course and I will gladly encourage other people I know to join.





Jessica, an expat in Munich from Australia, was not the most sporty but she learned with us and blogged about direct parallel turn with Parallel Skiing's version of the graduated length method.


Read her story of how she became quite the athelete by the end of the ski course.

What our students say...


I am currently holidaying in Canada and stood on my skis for the first time yesterday since the class (about a year ago by now).

I was convinced that I wouldn't remember anything after such a long time, being someone who doesn't have the best control over my body.

But thanks to your unique teaching technique everything came back to me within minutes, I remembered all the funny exercises (the duck, pissing on the pole) and I was back to the same level of skiing that I had when I left your class!


After this experience I just had to write you to thank you for the fun ski weekends and everything I got to learn at the paralell skiing class. I could not have learned skiing a better way and am so glad that I took your course.

I recommend your class whenever I can and I hope that you get more and more people using your short ski technique to learn how to ski in an easy way.


Thanks to you and to all your ski instructors



Parallel skiing is not great, it's awesome.

Or If you are afraid to learn to ski, read this blog from Isil who took the course in 2015-2016 and tells how she is conquering fear of skiing. It includes a candid running commentary of her experience in the sk course. Now she has a new blog for expats in Munich, movetomunich.com, and one of her first posts is Learn Skiing in Munich in which she tells about ski lessons at Parallel Skiing.
