Baden-Württemberg’s highest mountain is open for business

For skiers, the German region of Baden-Württemberg is a veritable winter wonderland. It is home to more than 300 ski lifts and 90 kilometers of slopes an average of 977 meters long.

Most ski lifts in Baden-Württemberg are situated in the southern part of the Black Forest and the Swabian Albs. Visitors will find many different slopes that vary in length and difficulty, affording all types of skiers with a run that’s right for their level of expertise.

At the Feldberg, in the southern part of the Black Forest, slopes are even rated at the World Cup level. The mountain is normally open from November to April, and sometimes extends opening dates if temperatures remain favorable.

The Feldberg ski area operates 28 lifts on 50 kilometers of slopes at an average of 100 days per year. During peak snowfall, the snowboard fun park at the bottom of the Seebruck offers two tables with two kicks each, as well as a selection of rails, jumps and jibs.

Located near the Feldberg area, the Seebruck, Grafenmatt and Fahl Alpin resorts, home to 25 kilometers of slopes and 12 lifts, offer one all-access pass.

The Fahler ski lifts are the highest in the Black Forest. Here, the slopes play host to the Fédération Internationale de Ski and World Cup races.

In Altglashütten, Falkau and  Neuglashütten villages around the Feldberg, family-friendly lifts service 3.9 kilometers of groomed slopes.

The ski areas of Feldberg, Menzenschwand, Muggenbrunn and Todtnauberg (with an alpine station and 13 kilometers of sunny slopes) have joined together to provide a  combined lift ticket.

A seated ski lift is offered at Seebruck especially for snowboarders and, depending on the snow conditions, offers specific boarder slopes with two kickers and three rails. The snowboard school Schneebrett is on site to supply tips and tricks.
