The Ski Resort
In the Allgäu ski area Grasgehren, especially beginners, families and advanced skiers should feel comfortable. Almost all slopes in the ski area are marked in blue or red and are therefore ideally suited for pleasure carving. The slopes are located on a high basin at 1400 metres above sea level and therefore offer snow-sure skiing pleasure from the end of November to March.
From Grasgehren you can take the Bolgengratbahn uphill. Once you reach the 1,686-metre-high Bolgengrat, winter sports enthusiasts have two valley runs at their disposal, one for beginners and one for advanced skiers. The blue marked Ski & Boardercross World Cup course also branches off from the red marked valley run. There are further blue marked runs at the three T-bar lifts. Advanced skiers can also conquer the red marked slopes at the Hörnle lifts from Grasgehren. They are located on the west side of the high basin.
