The Ski Resort
In the picturesque landscape of the Hochschwarzwald lies the small Thurner ski lift. Like the Breitnau ski lift, it also belongs to the Wursthorn ski lifts. The family ski area has a drag lift, a baby lift and a mini baby lift. The blue piste is about 500 meters long and suitable for beginners and families. If you need support with your first attempts at skiing, you will find a ski and snowboard school here. To warm up you go to the rustic ski hut. There is also a separate group room, which can be used by the ski schools as well as privately.
The ski lift is open Friday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., Monday to Thursday at 10 a.m..
