The Ski Resort
In the Ore Mountains lies the modest but fine ski area Holzhau, which is one of the most beautiful ski areas in the Ore Mountains. From December to March, the snow conditions here are excellent, which can be helped by a modern snowmaking system if necessary.
Beginners can learn the basics of winter sports in the ski and snowboard courses of the ski school. For snowboarders there is even a fun park where they can enjoy themselves and try out daring stunts.
Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 16.30 to 23 o'clock there is night skiing with barn party. On Sundays, the lifts are also open longer (until 8 p.m.) when snow conditions are good.
- Offering 2 miles of slopes and terrain, Holzhau is among the 10 largest Ski Resorts in Saxony.
- Holzhau is among the 10 best rated Ski Resorts in Saxony.
- Snow coverage is usually best during February, offering an average snow depth of 15 " at summit elevation and 8 " at the base.
Snow Safety & Snowmaking
On Mountain Dining
During the breaks, the friendly staff of the rustic ski hut is at the disposal of winter sports enthusiasts and provides them with food and drink. Those who still feel like having a glass of wine or a beer after a fulfilling day of skiing can enjoy themselves again in Willy's party barn or enjoy the sun on the terrace.
In Holzhau you can not only ski or snowboard. The airboard, for example, provides variety. With the inflatable sledge neither the halfpipe nor the mogul slope is a problem. Also snow-kite promises a lot of fun. Courses for this are offered from four people upwards.
Cross-country skiers also get their money's worth. The trail network in Holzhau includes five skating trails and five classic trails. There is also a high-altitude and a floodlit track. The high-altitude trail can be reached with the ski lifts. Furthermore, the region is connected to the Osterzgebirgsloipe.
