Few things in life are certain. But the guarantee of snow and good times in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena is one of those things. Crowned by the Zugspitze glacier, lined with 142km of all-abilities runs (expanding to 213km with a Top Snow Card lift pass) and offering a range of apres activities, this beautiful domain of seven villages has everything you’d expect from a winter week, with one added benefit – it’s still relatively under-the-radar when compared to its Austrian neighbours. But it won’t be that way forever, especially with the introduction of new hotels and lifts for the upcoming season. Read on, and discover a hidden gem before everyone else does…
How To Get There
Being right on the border of Austria and Germany (the Zugspitze being Germany’s highest mountain at 2,962m), centre your flight search on Innsbruck (1hr 15min drive) and Munich (2hr drive). Both airports are well serviced by British Airways and EasyJet.
Tucked up in the north of the Tirol region, the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena is a bit of a winter snow secret for the smart-booking families of mainland Europe. The all-abilities pistes and graciously affordable prices here make it a real winner for those looking to get their kids on skis.
With Ehrwalder Almbahn and Ehrwalder Wettersteinbahnen being certified family ski areas, as well as a variety of other ski areas, there’s more than enough in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena to keep everyone in your group happy.
“It really is impossible to not feel like you’re winning at life when you’re out here”
And the cherry on the cake? That jaw-dropping scenery you’ve come to expect from this part of the world, accessed by a great network of lifts including the very new Obere Karbahn in Berwang – a 10-person gondola with middle station and mountain restaurant. It really is impossible to not feel like you’re winning at life when you’re out here.
