The Ski Resort
The Rotterhang in Schellerhau is especially suitable for families and beginners. A rope lift takes skiers and snowboarders up the mountain, where the 350-metre long easy descent starts. Various ski and snowboard courses are offered for beginners and the very youngest learn the ABCs of winter sports in the bambini ski courses. If you don't have your own equipment, you can rent the necessary accessories at the ski and board rental on site.
Thanks to the floodlight system, night skiing is also possible here. The Rotterhang lift is open during the week from 13 to at least 18 hrs. On weekends the operation starts already at 10 am. During the Christmas and winter holidays (Saxony, Berlin, Brandenburg, Thuringia) the lift is open daily from 10.00 am.
