As to unit involved, they appear to be wearing Austrian police uniforms in some of the photos suggesting an origin from that country.

The link posted by Gerdan shows a postcard of the Polizei Schischule in Oberjoch. But the building in the first photo is the Polizei Schischule in Sudenfeld in Bavaria. It is still in use today by the Bavarian police.
Here is a photo of the school in pre-1945 time.

How did you find out that? Do you live in the region?

Unfortunately there is zero information to be found on the Internet about this unit. While doing research I ran into your thread on the Axis History Forum. May I ask why you are interested in that unit?

Did this unit train Police soldiers for their further use in Polizei-Gebirgsjäger-Bataillons?

Perhaps the specialists can help.

Regards
The ski and alpine schools were intended to train those police designated for service in the high mountains and also for recreation. Those policemen, Gendarmerie and Schupo, in the photos were sent from their respective units for temporary training at the schools. Listings were published in the Min of Interior Journals indentifying the men. Successful completion of courses resulted in designation as Schi-Fuhrer or Bergfuhrer. These men were not part of the police batallions intended to make up the Pol Geb Jag Rgt 18. No Edelweiss on the sleeves. Those units came from Norway to train in places like Reutte. The history can be found in the book of the unit history of the 18th regiment.

My mistake of course, even if I think the correct place is Sudelfeld, but I may be wrong.
The builiding are so similar I've thought was Oberjoch.
The eagle puzzled me since was on the other side of the building...but was late yesterday night so I didn't bother to compare them.
Sorry Ober, JoeW is right.

Sudelfeld.
BTW I would love to see a close up of the eagle if existing in picture, they seem to be exactly the same and not a "standard" OrPo eagle design.

The dark uniforms shown in the photos are mostly Bavarian Landespolizei. They can be distinguished by the two button black cuffs on the tunics and the collar Litzen. Some are wearing slightly different dark uniforms but they may well be transitional Bavarian city police uniforms with French cuffs. Hard to tell color from B/W photos. So, it looks like Bavarian Policemen in training to me.

I'm with you on that point George. Makes sense since the other photos shown are of ski training at Sudefeld which is in Bavaria. Could me a thrown together mix of two subjects or perhaps one of the guys in the old uniform training photos is in the ski training photos.
