The Ski Resort
The Stinesser lifts in Fischen offer a skiing and tobogganing experience day and night. The small ski area is located directly on the outskirts of the village and is particularly suitable for beginners and families. For the first swings it is best to take the blue slope at the Buckelwiesen lift. If you are more advanced, you can switch to the red run at the Stinesserlift. There, for the more daring, there is also an unprepared "wild downhill run". Between the blue and red slopes is the ski school area with a children's lift and a magic carpet for the little ones. By the way: guests in Fischen with the AllgäuWalserCard use the lifts free of charge during the day!
In the area of the Hörnerdorfer in the Allgäu there are four more skiing areas besides the lifts in Fischen. These are considerably larger and are located in Bolsterlang, Balderschwang, Ofterschwang and Grasgehren.

On Mountain Dining
A small range of food and drinks is offered by the Liftstadl, right next to the cash desk. There is also a small sun terrace.
As the slopes in the skiing area are equipped with floodlights, winter sports enthusiasts can also ski or snowboard on Monday and Wednesday from 17.30 to 20 hrs. Evening tobogganing tours are possible on Saturday evening. Special evening tickets are sold for both.
Two toboggan runs provide a lot of fun besides skiing. During the day the natural toboggan run to the right of the Buckelwiesen lift is available for this purpose. Ascent is there on foot. On Saturday evening you can take the T-bar lift to the top. For the evening tobogganing from 17.30 to 20 o'clock a part of the blue slopes is used.
Cross-country skiers also get their money's worth in Fischen. 7 cross-country trails are available. One of them is a night track along the road to Obermeiselstein.
Those who want to warm up after their outdoor sports should visit the Wonnemar in Sonthofen. The indoor adventure pool offers action for the little ones and relaxation for the big ones.
