Fellhorn-Kanzelwand is part of the bicountry ski area of Oberstdorf Kleinwalsertal, and features around 36km/22mi of slopes, including two valley runs. Beginners and returners in particular will enjoy the runs here. But more experienced winter sportsmen also find some challenges: around 20km/12mi of intermediate runs, blacks, a mogul run, and a trail where you can measure your speed are demanding even for pros. The slopes are serviced by 14 lifts.

If you are looking for diversion, the two terrain parks are certainly the place to go. Easypark and Fellhorn Funslope, a special fun area for freestyle novices, guarantee lots of fun and action in the snow. Beginner sections specially designed to practise your first jumps provide the ideal start into park riding. CrystalGround is located at the Kanzelwand base area. Here you can find lines for more experienced and advanced freestylers. Look forward to diverse events, sessions, and a floodlight session every Wednesday.
