The Ski Resort
The ski resort Söllereck in the Oberstdorf/Kleinwalsertal region is perfect for beginners and families, boasting wide, well-groomed slopes, that invite you for an unhurried and pleasurable run. The 14km/8.7mi of slopes in the ski area divide into 7km/4.3mi of blues, 6km/7.7mi of reds, and 1km/0.6mi of black runs. A total of six lifts get winter sports enthusiasts to the top of the mountain.
'Söllis Winterwelt' all-year playground provides even more fun in the snow. SölliBully, a wooden XXL snow groomer takes children's hearts by storm all year round. A free conveyor belt leads to the flat practice run where they can practise their first steps on the snow. Further conveyors get you from the car park to the slope and on to the practice run.
Several times per season, there is a special night for ski tourers. On these days, the main run is not groomed, to make ski tours to Schönblick mountain hut possible.
Snow Safety & Snowmaking
On Mountain Dining
Several mountain huts take care of your culinary needs. Mountain inn Schönblick boasts home-made Allgäu delicacies, special dishes for children, a lovels sun deck, and a beautiful view over Oberstdorf. At the cosy parlour of Alpe Oberstdorf, skiers and snowboarders enjoy Alpine classics like Rösti, mountain cheese, bratwurst or Kässpatzen.
At Alpe Schrattenwang you can enjoy a hearty gulash soup, or the infamous Jägertee (tea spiked with fruit schnapps or rum). Other options to get a nice and regional meal are the mountain hut on Söller, Alpengastof-Café Heimspitze, mountain inn Seeweg, or Ziegelbachhütte.
The slopes by Höllwies lift feature a particularly impressive view over Oberstdorf. These runs are a bit more challenging, which is great for more experienced skiers. Höllwies run also used to be a FIS race track. Nowadays, it is a slope with natural snow only, offering a swift down-hill experience even to advanced skiers.
Off-piste, several winter hiking trails lead you through Kleinwalsertal valley, to Oberstdorf, or to Freibergsee lake and the ski jump. The all-weather toboggan run Allgäu Coaster takes you down into the valley through twists and turns. Another way to get fun and action for the young and the old is to try snow biking. Moreover, there is an ice rink for skating in Oberstdorf.
Après-Ski and Nightlife
