The Ski Resort
The Ehrwalder Alm is located below the Wetterstein massif and belongs to the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. The 27.5 km of alpine slopes in the ski area promise enjoyable downhill runs for everyone. On the mostly wide and flat pistes, which are ideal for practicing, families, beginners and newcomers. With 18 kilometres of blue pistes, there is plenty of room for the ski schools' practice area and enough space to improve the technique.
Advanced skiers can romp on the 7.5 kilometres of red slopes and even a black slope is waiting for brave experts in the ski area. The modern snowmaking facilities on the Ehrwald Alm can guarantee snow up to April on almost 22 km of pistes. Comfortable chairlifts or gondola lifts bring winter sports enthusiasts back to up to 1,923 metres after the downhill runs.
Wonder carpets, ski carousels, rope lifts: the practice area of the two Ehrwald ski schools is well equipped so that the kids can start their first attempts on boards. Non-skiers can take the gondola to the practice area of the ski schools and watch the ski dwarfs from the edge of the piste. The smallest children are in the best hands in the ski kindergarten, which is located in the Tirolerhaus, when their parents sway down the slopes.
Adventure seekers should not miss the new Funslope with waves, tunnels and a gigantic snow snail. Freestyle fans will also find their money's worth in the ski area. The professionally built "BretterparkEhrwald" is centrally located. Beginners as well as professionals can practice the latest tricks along the Klämmli slope. Various jumps, rails, boxes - the Bretterpark offers everything a freeskier' s/boarder's heart desires. The best thing about it is that you can easily return to the top with the Klämmli-Lift, which is just as long as the fun park, after every run.
