Skiing Courses


René Gulager - never tried snowboarding. So a beginners class would be most welcomed.

Ingo Augsten - advanced snowboarding session (kickers, halfpipe, spotting errors) would be most welcome.

Rainer Zeh - never tried skiing; absolute beginner (hi Rainer, today it did not work but maybe tomorrow. Send me a mail if you are still interested -- Erik) hin erik, thank you very much but i learned a lot by myself today and can continue alone.

Berit Jensen - just tried snowboarding once so I'd participate in a beginners class too, if there would be one.


Jochen Rau: I could give a half-day course in advanced skiing techniques (e.g. carving, trick ski, or moguls skiing)

Erik Sokoll: Maybe on Sunday, but sure on Monday I could do a normal Skiing course for beginners (NO SnowBoard).

Pay your bill!

Apparently not all people who participated in the tour down to Falera and up again to the mountain paid their share for the gondola, bus and rent of the sports hall. I was only 10 CHF per person, but not all paid. This is just unfair and not in line with the spirit of the TYPO3 community.

Internet Access

We have Internet access at the hostel. If you need the WPA key: look at the flipchart in the bar/capalari restaurant.

In the upper floor of the main restaurant there are two WLAN networks:

- T3BOARD09 N (supports 802.11n/b/g)
- T3BOARD09 BG (supports 802.11b/g)

at the capalari bar the SSID T3BOARD09

Attention: Internet Access will be available until Sunday morning 9:00 am


List of Hardware we can use at the MountainHostel.

Main Hardware for networking

Additional Hardware for networking

Erik Sokoll: A Linksys Wireless-G Access Point WAP54G, a Linksys Bridge WET54G and a LevelOne five port switch to connect areas in the hostel  which have no good WLAN access. Moreover some CAT5 cable with 15m and others.

Jochen Weiland: Airport Extreme WLAN access point, 5-port GBit switch, a few network cables (1-15m), beamer

Hardware for video/podcasts

Forgot to say... brought a SURE Micro with 5m cable (Erik) (Mobile PA from mathias got a wireless mic)

Weather forecast


Climbing wall

The MountainHostel has an outside climbing wall.
Unfortunately the Hotel says, that we cannot use it.
So if you have no problems about space in the car, take your things (I will do so). There are other places like the one in Flims [1] which is not best choice, but maybe we are lucky and they allow us to use the one at the Hotel.


Photos / Videos

If your are posting material to Flickr, Youtube, etc., please make sure to tag the items as t3board09


Sauna is only open until dinner (18:30).

Is there something we should think about?

Classifieds / Wanted / Offers

This is something I missed at the past snowboard tours: We have a lot of talented people together for a week, this would be a great opportunity for exchange of knowledge. Use this section to search for or offer stuff.

Wanted: Final Cut Express 4 Lesson

Yes, there is a manual (1200+ pages) and I know what a timeline is. But perhaps someone can give me some hands-on training on how to get some quick results out of Final Cut Express. I am bringing the software plus some video clips that I would like to put together. If someone is interested in doing this with me: this will get you an evening of free drinks. Contact Jochen Weiland (Room 33)

T3BOARD09 Review

Please write your reviews to the t3board mailinglist


What makes a good TYPO3 Snowboard geek tour?

  • slopes
  • accomodation
  • bars, party
  • price
  • internet connection
  • travel
  • conference rooms
  • designated non-smoking areas!!! The amount of secondary smoke that we needed to inhale in Laax was outrageous. +4

Where to go next year? suggestions?

  • where is it?
  • how much is it?
  • how many people fit in?
  • who takes over organization? you?


Honestly: Laax is hard to beat! Perfect for boarders, a fantastic location up in the mountains, lots of snow, good bar staff, etc. LAAX RULEZ


  • 3 skiing resorts in one place
  • a snowboard mekka like Laax
  • no idea where to stay though


Steffan R has made a request to the Sölden Turismusinformation 27.03.2009 with the following:

  • February / March
  • 120-160 People
  • 1. 120-160 People to be in one location
  • 2. High-Speed Internet Connection
  • 3. A large meetingroom with seating
  • 4. Breakfast and Dinner included
  • 5. Accomodation must be near the slopes, preferable "Hoch Sölden"
  • 6. Bookinglist comes from us, people pay directly to "Sölden Turismusinformation"
  • 7. The price should include a 6-day Skipass
  • 8. A Hotelbar with music where a large part of the TYPO3 Geeks can nerd around.

I gave them the info that we are a Mature group.

As soon as i get more info, i will place them here.
