Damuls-Mellau Beginners

Damuls-Mellau ski area is very well groomed with plenty of easy skiing on wide blue runs, most of it on the Damuls side of the ski area, and a choice of easy red runs for fast-track beginners.

If you’re a second time skier able to ski a controlled snow plough or better, you’ll find plenty of good ‘beginner’ runs above Damuls, but you need to be ready to ride chairlifts as there’s not much nursery slope skiing down in the valley at base level.

The ski area above Damuls will suit confident beginners who can get good value from their lift pass starting with a choice of easy blue and progress to ski intermediate runs descending from the top of most ski lifts. And because the slopes are invariably well groomed and often exceptionally wide, beginners can traverse for longer between turns and gain confidence.

Group ski lessons are available for adults and children learning to ski from age 4 or to snowboard from aged 6. There’s also a dedicated children’s area behind Damuls Ski School with kindergarten facilities for pre-school children aged 2-4.

Over at Mellau there are short blue runs suitable for beginners at the top of the Rossstelle gondola, but not much worth writing about as Mellau’s ski runs are mostly north facing reds and blacks and less suitable for beginners.

When pre-booking lessons at Damuls-Mellau ski schools bear in mind that the majority of guests are from Switzerland, Germany, France and Benelux and ask the ski school to provide you with an instructor that speaks good English. Most ski instructors do so you shouldn’t have any problems.
