Skiing in Germany's low mountain ranges
Among the most popular low mountain ranges are the Black Forest in Baden-Württemberg as well the Bavarian Forest. Both regions offer multiple smaller ski resorts with easier slopes.

Germany's biggest ski resorts
The ski resort Garmisch-Classic includes three mountains: Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alpspitze. Thus, a great range of slopes spread in a relatively small space surrounded by a spectacular mountain landscape. The advanced downhill slopes are considered to be among the toughest downhills worldwide – such as the legendary Kandahar course.
The ski resort Winklmoosalm-Steinplatte near Reit im Winkl in the Chiemgauer Alps has one of Germany’s longest slopes: the “Seegatterl” leads on a 9 km long downhill course through the German-Austrian ski resort.
Moreover, Oberstdorf im Allgäu is one of Germany’s most popular winter sport regions with about 130 km of slopes. The border crossing ski organization “Oberstdorf-Kleinwalsertal” consists of five ski resorts with Nebelhorn, Fellhorn/Kanzelwand and Söllereck on the German side.
