Integrated into the bicountry ski region Oberstdorf Kleinwalsertal, the ski resorts of Walmendingerhorn, Ifen and Heuberg have come together to make up one ski area, featuring 67km/41.6mi of perfectly groomed slopes. Grab a lift at the base station to get to Walmendingerhorn and its slopes that are perfect for pleasure skiers. Heuberg is known as the family mountain, thanks to its easy runs. Beginners, children, and returners find wide slopes here to practise their turns. Ifen has seen a considerable quality improvement with the two new and modern lifts Ifen I and Ifen II as well as a new snow cannon.

Altogether, you find a diverse skiing terrain. Besides the novices, experienced and ambitious skiers will also get their money's worth. If you are looking for a challenge, the black runs in the Ifen area are just perfect for you.

Apart from the great slopes, the large sun deck and the panoramic glass lift on Walmendingerhorn as well as the hike through the snow dunes over Gottesacker on Ifen are also highlights you should not miss during your holiday here.
