The Ski Resort

Following the merger of the ski area Winklmoosalm with the Austrian Steinplatte area, winter sports fans can now explore over 40 km of interconnected runs. From the German side, the ski area is accessed via the Seegatterl district of Reit im Winkl – home to the base station of the Winklmoosalm gondola lift.

Winklmoosalm is an ideal destination for beginners and families with children, with 10 km of blue-rated runs to explore here. In addition to two surface lifts (the Roßalm and Zigeuner-Kurven-Lift) there is a four-person chairlift on Roßalm and a six-person chairlift on Scheibelberg. If these lifts offer up enough variation for you, we suggest opting for the substantially cheaper lift pass just covering Winklmoosalm.

If you are a more advanced skier, then be sure to check out the slopes on Steinplatte. The Steinplatte and Bäreck chairlifts both provide access to multiple red-rated runs. The Südhang and Steinberg runs start at the point where the ski area tops out at 1,860 metres, a spot which can also be considered a real highlight given its jaw-dropping views.

Experienced skiers will also find 2 km of black-marked trails within the ski area. Aside from a couple of mogul runs, experts shouldn’t miss the challenge posed by the Nordhang-Abfahrt.

A terrain park complete with a half pipe is waiting for adventurous snowboarders and freestyle skiers on the Steinplatte. The park itself is divided into three areas featuring differing degrees of difficulty. The park is close to the Möser Alm and is accessible via the Kapellen-Lift.

On Mountain Dining

The ski area offers a total of eight mountain lodges serving food and drink for skiers and snowboarders. The Stallenalm, for instance, offers hearty regional fare to warm the cockles. The fantastic panoramic views come free of charge with the food. The Kammerkör-Hütte serves a range of soups and main courses right alongside the barn. This lodge kicks off the après-ski proceedings every afternoon. The Alpengasthaus Bäreck and Möseralm are other good options for on-mountain eating.

In the Winklmoosalm area, the Almstüberl, Sonnen-Alm and Hotel Winklmoos are all good places to take a break and grab a bite to eat. If you want to round out your day on the slopes back in the valley, the inviting Seegatterl-Alm is a good choice.

Must-Ski Runs

Visiting the Seegatterl-Alm is also a good opportunity to take in the impressive valley run from Steinplatte down to Seegatterl. This lengthy trail is some 12 km long, encompassing 1,120 vertical metres in the process – one of the longest runs in all of Germany. In contrast, the most challenging trail is the black-rated Nordhang-Piste on Steinplatte, plunging 385 vertical metres downwards over its 1.2 km length.

Reit im Winkl also offers plenty to do away from the slopes. Probably the most tranquil way to enjoy the unspoiled winter landscape here is with a guided snowshoe tour or a walk through the backcountry.

Alternatively, the 4 km natural sled run on Hemmersuppenalm promises fun and action for all the family. After grabbing some food in the Hindenburghütte, the run winds all the way back into the valley. Sled fans will also find additional runs on Langlaufstadion, on Winklmoosalm and in Entfelden.

In Benzeck, close to the centre of Reit im Winkl, there’s a snow tubing course which was one of the first of its kind in Germany when it opened in 1999. By the way, Benzeck also has two blue-rated runs and one red trail served by three surface lifts for Alpine skiers looking for a smaller hill.
