The ski lift carousel Winterberg in the region of Sauerland guarantees ski fun on 7 mountains. 34 runs spread across 27,5 kilometers of skiable terrain. It’s actually the biggest connected area above the Main River. The ski resort also appeals with up to date lifts and a night skiing offer that no other ski resort in Western Germany can hold a candle to.

A great spot for beginners is the area around Herrlohkopf (lift No. 17-19) and the Bremberg (lift No. 9-11). The trails off lift No. 15 at Käppchenhang are also great to find your ski legs. Those are also great to work on your skills since they are pretty generous, open and not too steep. Herrlohkopf is especially great for small ski fans. On 1 ha you’ll find a huge kids area with magic carpet, colorful figures and a tepee tent.

For those, who have more experience under their belt, the Poppenberg is a great option. The designated reds are ideal for carving. The Kappe, on the opposite side, features a great black run. It’s located right next to the bob run, which annually welcomes the world’s best bobber. The slalom run at Herrlohkopf (No. 2) is even among the steepest trails north of the Alps.

The ski resort guarantess a blast, even at night time. Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday you can hit 14 runs with a total length of eight kilometers, that are lighted until 10 pm. So come here to enjoy the greatest offer for lighted skiing in Western Germany.
