Ski & Snowboarding During Winter at FISU Bergsonne

Meditation + Ski = Amazing

Meditation + Ski = Amazing!

Are you a winter sports fan? FISU’s retreat centre, Bergsonne, located in Oberstaufen in the Bavarian Alps, Germany, is just 10 minutes from the ski slopes where you can do a variety of winter sports, as well as enjoying some peace and tranquility in the Bavarian Alps. Bergsonne is reasonably priced considering its well-appointed, luxurious apartments.

What’s more, we have two resident teachers running the property, Jaidev and Ralf, who are there to assist in any way possible. You can also have a re-vamp of your meditation and spiritual practices whilst you are there, should this be required.

Here are the prices for the winter ski season:

2 guests = EUR 60.00 per person per night

How do you get to the slopes?

Taxis are possible, but we would advise to hire a car from the airport. It would work out cheaper, than taxis or transfer charges. There are several rental places at the airport and prices start at about EUR 250 for a week (winter tyres are a must).

Private Car Transfer Charges from Memmingen and Friedrichshafen (Munich charges are higher).

EUR 105 one way for up to 4 guests
EUR 125 for a van

Local Meal Average Charges (As Bergsonne is self-catering)

Breakfast at the adjacent Hotel Engel is EUR 15 per person.
Dinner or lunch would be from around EUR 25.00 per person.
If you have lunch on the slopes, prices start from around EUR 10.00.

Ski Costs and lessons?

Ski and Lift passes are included in the apartment charges.

Beginners courses cost would be EUR 100 for 3 days. Private lessons can also be booked from EUR 50 per hour (EUR 160 if you book 4 hours).

Ski hire for a week is EUR 15.00 per day for carving skis.

Skis are housed for free in the Ski Cellar at Bergsonne and there is a ski boot room with dryers.

Enjoy white silence!
