The Ski Resort

The skiing area is particularly popular with families and offers wide, perfectly groomed slopes for enjoyable skiing. The slopes are devided into blue and red runs, 2.5 kilometers each. The chairlift takes winter sports enthusiasts up to 1,800 metres, from where the descents lead down to the valley. There is also a practice lift where inexperienced skiers and snowboarders can make their first attempts on the boards. The local ski school offers assistance.
In the nearby Holzgau there is another, smaller lift. The Gföllberglift opens up a blue and a red descent, on which beginners and families also feel very comfortable.

Snow Safety & Snowmaking
On Mountain Dining
For a cosy stop at the Jöchelspitze, the restaurant Sonnalm is the perfect place to relax. Skiers and snowboarders can relax on the sun terrace with free sun loungers and good old-fashioned cuisine. The magnificent panoramic view of the Lechtal and Allgäu Alps promises full enjoyment. The Bernhardseck-Hütte on the other hand can only be reached by touring, winter hiking or snowshoeing. Here, too, winter sports enthusiasts are treated to good old-fashioned cuisine.
Off-piste, the opportunities for ice skating and fast rides on the sledging track promise lots of fun for young and old. Furthermore, the southern slopes of the Jöchelspitze are an insider tip for Paragliders and Hang gliders.
