Until late spring, the glacier skiing region atop the Zugspitze attracts alpine-skiers, snowboarders, carvers, and freestylers, who also appreciate the traditional and safe descents on artificial snow. Beyond the well-maintained ski slopes, however, the Zugspitze region is a veritable El Dorado for deep-snow enthusiasts.
As in the past, the skiing season kicks off with the Viva Winter Fun-Festival in November 2004, a weekend filled with fun and action. Just in time for this year's season opening will be the inaugural run of the new 6-chair ski-lift "Sonnenkar" which is expected to be lifting skier’s comfort levels to new heights as well!
Whether beginner or racing expert, you are sure to find your favorite ski slope. There are a total of 118 kms (73 miles) of downhill runs of all difficulty levels, including the world famous "Kandahar", Germany’s only downhill run with a "World Cup License."
