The lovers of winter sports prefer for skiing one of routes and slopes of Fellhorn, Sollreck or Nebelhorn, one of most consistent ski-localities in Alps, offering not only sport, but also relax and entertainment. So, everybody will be enthusiastic who visits at least one of seven marvellous valleys in Oberstdorf. Each valley is different but each has its unchangable charm and magic . As to climate conditions, this area belongs to those with longest sunshine in Bavaria.
The attractive position of Oberstdorf locality and neighbouring Kleinwalsertal at the end of Iller-Valley which deeply cuts to Allgau-Alps, this guarantees a popularity of most favorite skiresort in Germany. So, Oberaudorf is an ideal place for holiday all year round for younger as well as for older sportsmen who wish to have a relax, or for tourists, alpinists, skiers and snowboardists, cyclists (during summer season), etc.
The culture is combined in harmonically way with traditions of Alps customs in Bavarian style. The offer of ski-towages (in this German-Austrian area of Fellhorn/Kanzelwand) was improved in last years, especially as far as the technical point of view is concerned.
However, the greatest handicap is a fact that so called Black-descent route is missing. This would enlarge the scale of utilized slopes for experienced skiers, too. So, most of slopes are valued as midlle-difficult. On Nebelhorn, the terrain is more difficult, so everybody finds its optimum for ski-descent. The families use, of course, the offer of Sollreck, as Hollvieslift does not belong to easy ones. The beginners could have, at first, the problem how to climb to the top. Snowboardists will be pleased in Fellhorn, where two snowparks are available for them, further a snowpark near to Sollreck asx well as very popular U-rampe in Nebelhorn. The lovers of white trace can use the route of 75 kms long nest of ski-running routes (since 2005 – when World Campionship in Nordic Ski-running disciples was taken place here. It is true that since this time the routes are of first class quality). Some mountings are extended up to 15 m, so nobody can be hindered , it does not matter if you are beginner or experienced skier.
