Beginner area at the Hausberg!
Although only 7 kilometres of the total of 40 kilometres of skiable terrain are classified easy we can still absolutely recommend this ski resort for novice skiers. The best choice for beginners is to access the ski resort at the Hausberg-Gondola which takes the inexperienced skiers to the gentle trails Kreuzwankl Trail 7 and the Bayernhaus Trail 6, a perfect beginner area. Garmisch Partenkirchen is not really a challenging resort. Thus also the intermediate (red) terrain at the Osterfeldkopf can be ventured into once the skiing basics are aquired. Also the intermediate (red) valley descents Olympia 4 and the 3km long Kochlberg Trail 1 are masterable. Our conclusion: Garmisch Classic is a recommendable resort for inexperienced skiers. However beware of the very flat connecting trails between the Kreuzeck and the Kreuzalm which might result in beginners having to take off their skis and walk the distance between the two areas.
