Groups consisting of at least 15 people have the possibility to ski down the slope after dark, if booked in advance. A large floodlight then illuminates the slope at lift 1 (anchor lift) and lift 3 (plate lift) from 19.00 to 21.00.

Snow Safety & Snowmaking
On Mountain Dining
The Berghof Ravensberg is located at 660 meters above sea level, where hungry winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy a hearty meal such as braised roast venison. From 15 o'clock there is also something for those with a sweet tooth: then you can have homemade cakes and tarts.
The longest skiing pleasure is offered by the family run (3). Thanks to its continuous blue-marked piste, even beginners can enjoy the downhill run.
If you still haven't had enough of the snow after skiing, discover one of the eight winter hiking trails offered by Bad Sachsa. Especially recommended is route 1, which leads over the Katzental valley past the Märchengrund and Harzfalkenhof and from there back over the section from the Harzer Grenzweg to the Schmelzteichwiese.
In the Harz mountains there are also numerous cross-country ski runs. The stage of the Südharz Loipe is the easiest and shortest tour and is therefore especially suitable for beginners. The Kaiserweg cross-country ski run, which leads from Wieda over the Wagnerskopf to the Ladestelle car park, turns out to be somewhat more demanding.
The ice rink is also a sporty place. Here visitors can choose between ice skating, ice dancing, ice hockey or curling. Every Saturday from 16.00 o'clock the ice disco for children takes place.
A lot of fun is promised by the toboggan run on the Ravensberg, which is located behind the parking lot of the ski area.
