Zugspitze Glacier Ski Resort

Top of winter sports!

Snow and ice surrounded by rocks and sky: The Zugspitze welcomes winter sports lovers with a ski area of superlatives! Thanks to advantageous altitude levels of between 2,000 and 2,720 metres above sea level, the slopes enjoy a deep covering of natural snow for six months of the year and are drenched in winter sunshine, even when the valley is submerged in a thick blanket of fog. 

Families and beginners, experienced carvers and snowboarders alike enjoy the 20 km of perfectly groomed runs in easy to moderate levels of difficulty. Snow conditions permitting, the fabulous Riffelriß downhill run is also open (accessible via cogwheel train / Riffelriß station). Winter fans can also enjoy a spot of tobogganing and first class alpine cuisine on Germany’s highest glacier. Visitors are rewarded with stunning panoramic views from all four mountain restaurants!

Top quality ascents and descents

The Zugspitze was the first German ski resort to receive the coveted title of „Certified Ski Resort“ from the Foundation for Safety in Ski Sports. This seal of quality guarantees clearly defined standards of safety. The two chairlifts, Wetterwandeck and Sonnenkar, also whisk users safely and comfortably up to the natural snow slopes. With modern weather protection hoods, these 6-seater chairlifts, are equipped for all (snow) conditions.
