The Ski Resort

The popular ski resort near the idyllic Spitzingsee lake lies a mere 70 km south of Munich, and offers holidaymakers and day-trippers alike a host of wonderful winter sporting activities. In the wake of extensive modernisation, the area has now been reinstated as one of the top 5 ski resorts in Germany.

A modern artificial snow system and the exposed heights of 980 m – 1,693 m above sea level mean that snow is guaranteed throughout the season. 23 km of slopes, 2 modern 4-seater chairlifts with protective covers, 1 gondola and 13 drag lifts ensure skiing pleasure for those of all abilities. The fun park on the Unteren Firstalm is considered an eldorado by snowboarders, including pros, who use it as a training ground. Cosy alpine huts with sun terraces provide welcome refreshment, while the certified ski and snowboarding schools offer a range of courses. Guests can hire equipment directly from the Stümpfling and Suttenbahn valley stations.

Skaters and cross-country skiers will revel in 30 km of ski-tracks in the Spitzingsee and Schliersee region, and the area also offers a range of other winter sporting activities – just check out the website! Accommodation for visitors to the ski area can be found in the mountain village of Spitzingsee, the nearby Schliersee and in the Tegernsee valley.

The Spitzingsee ski area belongs to the Alpen Plus ski pass association. Multi-day tickets are valid on all 75 mountain railways and lifts in the surrounding ski areas of Brauneck, Wallberg, Spitzingsee, Sudelfeld and Zahmer Kaiser/Tyrol.

I am a family of 5 - parents and 3 kids - 26/ 22 and 15. This will be the ffirst time all of us will be skiing. We are ENGLISH speaking and do not know German . Most likely we will be staying in the Alpen Club in Schliersee. Is there a suitable skiing school that the instructers speak English?? Are there easy skii trails (blue) - or all meduim (Red)and difficult (black). Can't find much site sin English - can you suggest English web sites

TimothyMany thanks I found the ski hire and ski school stuff online already but was good you confirmed the same companies, I am taking my 20yr old daughter and am staying in Alpen club schliersee for the week. I take it this is the closest ski resort to schliersee. Plan on getting her a 5 days for 3-4 hours course, her first time I am a thrill seeker so will have 3 - 4 hours to play then become Dad instructor for the rest of the day and I hope we can find some good Apres Ski?Anymore advice is very much appreciatedRegardsNeil_____T. Porter wrote:@cheerychapThe resort is just perfect for intermediate skiers an dbeginners. It is smaller than most of the huge ski areas in Austria, which means it still offers great slopes for a couple of days especially for skiers who still want to improve. I took my son to the resort regularly to learn skiing. You should check out this website to look for rental equipment: www.skiverleih-spitzingsee.deFor lessons you should check out ist mostly in germanHave funTimothy________________________
