The Ski Resort
At mount Schloßberg in Albstadt-Tailfingen in the Swabian Alb, winter sports enthusiasts have a 500-metre-long T-bar lift at their disposal. This provides access to the easy family run as well as the medium-difficulty alpine run. The ski area also has the first certified FIS race course in the Swabian Alb. The slopes are perfectly groomed with a powerful snow groomer.
Snowboarders and freestylers can practice new moves and tricks in the "Schneestern" snow park.
- The vertical drop from summit to base is 410 ft. The average difference in altitude between base and summit of Ski Resorts in Germany is 696 ft. Runs and slopes are therefore relatively short. The high point of the ski resort is located at an elevation of 3068 ft.
- Snow coverage is usually best during January, offering an average snow depth of 4 " at summit elevation and 2 " at the base.
Snow Safety & Snowmaking
Both slopes and the snowpark are completely illuminated in the evening by 43 floodlights (the most extensive piste floodlight system in the region)
Only a few minutes' walk from the ski lift is the popular Leimenfelsen viewpoint, which can be reached in five minutes from the top station via the hiking trail leading to the Bikepark start tower.
Sledging is prohibited on the slopes for safety reasons. Alternatively, we recommend the toboggan run at the Albstadt-Tailfingen natural outdoor pool, Freibadstraße.
Après-Ski and Nightlife
Dining and Restaurants
In addition to the WSV-Vereinsheim Skihaus Schalkental, which is located directly at the ski lift, there are several hotels, restaurants and pubs in Albstadt-Tailfingen and the surrounding area. It is best to ask the locals about the various possibilities.
Infrastructure & Rental
The DSV Ski and Snowboard School of the WSV Tailfingen offers courses for adults and children on weekends and individual lessons on weekdays on request.
