A winter fairy tale come true. And that is a feat, because as we all know: making the whole family happy is a true challenge! The Kolbensattel ski area in Oberammergau promises a memorable winter day of skiing for everyone in your family.
What makes a family ski vacation in the Ammergau Alps so special
The Kolbensattel in Oberammergau has a large selection of blue runs, making it the perfect ski area for beginners and families with children. The top is at an altitude of 1,200 m (3937 ft.), the area gets lots of sunshine and snow, and the fresh Alpine air will make any skier's heart leap for joy! A chair lift and a new T-bar take you to the top of immaculately groomed slopes. There are snow machines to ensure consistently good conditions. You can choose from 4 different kinds of lift tickets ranging from tickets by the hour to week passes. This way, you pay for the amount of skiing you want to enjoy - no more, no less!
A fantastic day on the slopes at the Kolbensattel for the whole family
Beginners can feel at ease here, because all of the easy runs are located at the bottom of the ski area. When you have had enough of skiing, you can look forward to going sledding or taking a snowshoe walk or even hiking up one of the beautiful Ammergau mountains. Hike up on skis and ski back down through snow-covered meadows and trees. If you prefer to relax, you can warm up and enjoy some local food and drink or some homemade cake and fresh coffee in one of the cozy alpine lodges and restaurants. That is always a highlight when you are on vacation in the Zugspitze Region.
