SKI AREA

As the ski resort is mostly designated for beginners and intermediate skiers with its 13 kilometers (8 miles) blues and 18 kilometers (11 miles) of reds, experts won´t miss out. The 9 kilometers (5,6 miles) of black runs bring enough challenges to make the best skiers think twice.

Most of the easier ski trails at Diedamskopf start at the top of the mountain. From here, take the blue trails No. 6 and 8 down. You can also get down by skiing No. 7.

Those looking for intermediate runs it´s best to try the red trail No. 22. As you ski down to the valley station, you will pass the restaurant ´Wedelstube´. Don´t forget to ski slope No.21 if you like red runs and your target is the valley. Don´t miss No. 9 at the top of Diedamskopf as well as No. 17 with its starting point Breitenalpe.

The toughest ski terrain is located at the top of the mountain. No. 1 is one of the challenging runs and gives you access to the restaurant ´Wedelstube´. No. 2 is an other ´Experts Only´ trail and brings you to the terrain park ´Pleasure Diedamspark´.
 
Snowboarder and Freestyler pretty much get together at ´Pleasure Diedamspark´, the biggest terrain park in the region. Beginners and experts will be in their element and can go crazy with kickers, boxes, rails and countless features that can only be found here. Head down red slope No. 3 or the black slope No. 2 to find the terrain park.

Grab ski tow Grunholz in Au to go night skiing. Nights and hours of operating are Wednesday and Friday from 7 pm to 10 pm. You can fortify yourself with ´Glühwein´ (mulled wine) or ´Jagertee´ (tea with alcohol) at ´Lifthüsle´.

Kids are in the right place at ´Didi´s Kids-Aventureland´. Here you find professional childcare. This way you can get to know the ski resort without feeling guilty.

Trails, you shouldn´t miss
 
The ski resort´s longest slope is the 10 km (6 miles) run that brings you back to the valley Unterdiedams. Try this run with an altitude difference of 1240 meters (4000 ft), but be aware you will probably get some leg burn. Take it from the top station Diedamskopf  and ski to the gondola valley station. Avoid the run by skiing the ski route 21.
 
Mid-mountain restaurant Käsker is situated beneath the mogul slope (No. 3) the so-called ´Schwarze Schneid´ (means you need some courage to take this slope).
The trail where you can measure your speed, situated at the right of the top station ´Breitenalpe´ and a public race slope, left from the station, are two more highlights of the ski resort.


AFTER SKIING

All toboggan enthusiasts will get their money´s worth at Grundholz lift. The ski tow brings you right up to the starting point in a special toboggan and then it goes swiftly down on the left trail.

If you prefer to take a walk through winter wonderland instead of speeding through it,  2 kilometers (1,2 miles) of winter hiking trails await you. It just takes 15 minutes to reach the top of Diedamskopf and you will find yourself at 2000 meter (6560 ft) above sea level.
