The Rossfeld ski area in the Berchtesgadener Land is one of the smallest ski areas in the Alps. Nevertheless it enjoys a good reputation - especially with families. 3.5 kilometres of slopes offer pure snow fun for families and beginners. There is also a 6-kilometre long downhill run from Rossfeld to Oberau. 

At Rossfeld itself, four lifts bring winter sports enthusiasts back up the mountain. Thanks to the great location of the ski area, you have a wonderful view of the Berchtesgadener Alps, the Salzach Valley and as far as Salzburg. However, anyone who takes the six-kilometre-long downhill run to Oberau is then taken back to the base station of the ski area by the ski bus. Even after work, a detour to the ski area is worthwhile, because here you can ski at night.

Snowboard and freestyle fans will find a small fun park and a separate snowboard slope with jumping hills at Rossfeld.

If you want, you can also purchase a combined ski pass for the Rossfeld and the neighbouring Zinkenlift. Thus, 15 kilometres of cross-border slopes are available to winter sports enthusiasts.
