The Ski Resort
Ski resort Weinebene offers a great range of blue and red marked slopes, especially for beginners and advanced skiers. This is why families feel particularly at home here with children.
Seven lifts take skiers and snowboarders up the mountain. Beginners spend most of their time on the slopes marked in blue in the lower part of the ski area. With lifts "Weinofen" 1 and 2 you go up to the top. From there two blue marked slopes lead back to the valley station. Another blue marked exit runs along lift "Gösler".
Advanced skiers drive over the red marked slopes from the top of the ski resort. With lifts "Brandrücken" 1 and 2 it goes up to the very top. From there, several red marked slopes lead back to the valley station or further over a blue marked slope to the valley station of lift "Gösler".
For experienced skiers there are two black marked slopes. You start at the top of the ski resort, which can be reached via lifts "Brandrücken" 1 and 2.
On Snowboarder and Freeskier a Snowpark is waiting at the ski resort. To reach it, first take lift "Brandrücken" 1 or 2 to the top of the ski resort and then the red marked slope, which starts between the top station of lifts "Brandrücken" 1 and 2 and that of lift "Schneeloch". Along the route there is a downhill to the snowpark.
