About us

History and philosophy of ADVENTURE RAURIS

In December 1996, we welcomed our first visitors with our still small, but highly motivated and exceptionally well-trained team as ADVENTURE RAURIS Ski and Snowboard School.

We – Hubert and Michaela (Mitch) Schweighofer, the "founding parents" – have always made it our top priority to teach winter sports in a fun and enjoyable way and to create lasting experiences and memories in the process.

Now, we have three children: Meli, Michi and Emili. They are also heavily involved in improving our services and coming up with innovative ideas. They also enjoy teaching winter sports and have worked with some of our most loyal employees over the years to build the pillars of ADVENTURE RAURIS.

We want all our guests and future employees to feel, experience and be motivated by the same unifying love of the mountains, nature and winter sports as us. Over the years, many of our former ski course participants have completed their training to become ski or snowboard instructors on the glacier of the Kitzsteinhorn and have become valuable members of the ADVENTURE FAMILY.  This cohesion as a "big family" is what makes us stand head and shoulders above the rest and our guests recognise and appreciate it.

Our focus will remain on providing the highest level of ski and snowboard instruction for kids, young people and adults, service and rental, as well as advice and sales. In our early days, we were known for our passion, genuine enthusiasm and one hundred percent authenticity and this still holds true today.
