Skiing & snowboarding

on 20 kilometres of snow-sure ski runs

The ski runs at the Zugspitze ski area are located on the slopes of three mountains: Schneefernerkopf (2,874 m), Wetterwandeck (2,698 m) and Zugspitze or Zugspitze plateau (2,600 m).

The benefits of the ski area at a glance

  • Long ski season: from the beginning of December to the beginning of May (depending on snow conditions)
  • 20 kilometres of snow-sure ski runs: Due to its altitude, the Zugspitze offers optimal conditions for natural snow – which forms the basis for perfectly groomed ski runs.
  • Different levels of difficulty: ski runs for beginners, advanced skiers and pros
  • Ski lessons: in groups or privately, for children or adults
  • Ski rental: Equipment for skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing is available at one of the numerous ski hire stations.
  • Various refreshment stops with beautiful sundecks: Restaurant Sonnalpin, Gletschergarten and Panorama 2962
