The Ski Resort
90 percent of the pistes in the Oberammergau ski area are marked in blue and therefore offer ideal conditions for beginners and returners, but also for the whole family. Nine lifts take winter sports enthusiasts up the mountain, providing fun on a total of eight kilometers of slopes. All practice lifts for ski schools and beginners are located in the valley area.
Freeskiers and snowboarders get their money's worth in the Snowpark Oberammergau. Here there are different lines for all levels of ability.

On Mountain Dining
There are four possibilities to stop off in the ski area. In the Kolbensattelhütte, delicious dishes made from regional products are served. You can enjoy your meal either indoors or on the large terrace with a panoramic view. The après-ski atmosphere starts in the afternoon at the umbrella bar at the valley station of the Kolben chairlift.
The altitude and the extensive Ammer Valley make Oberammergau an El Dorado for cross-country skiers. Even less experienced skiers will have fun on the free 50 kilometres of cross-country trails.
A big highlight for children and young people is the AlpinCoaster. It takes you 2.5 kilometres from the Kolbensattelhütte down into the valley. Within sight of the hut is also a large mountain adventure playground for children.
