Tucked up against the German border, the Zugspitz Arena is an unspoilt region of the Tirol that combines mountain views and village charm with an impressive range of skiing.
Named after the mighty Zugspitze mountain and situated in the Tirol’s quaint Außerfern region, the Zugspitz Arena is home to not just one ski area, but six. With all the villages and ski areas well-connected by ski bus, it’s easy to make the most of the huge choice and variety of skiing in the region.
Experience family-friendly pistes at Ehrwalder Alm, enjoy the view to Zugspitze from Grubigstein in Lermoos, try the connected skiing areas of Berwang and Bichlbach, discover treelined runs at Wetterstein and untouched pistes in Biberwier. You can even take the train over the border to ski German resorts like Garmisch Partenkirchen, Grainau and Mittenwald, all included in the Zugspitz Arena’s Top Snow Card. Whichever area you head to, you can expect jaw-dropping views, top-notch ski schools and a superb choice of restaurants, as well as atmospheric slopes.
Evenings in the Zusgspitz Arena are just as thrilling, with an action-packed programme the whole family will adore — think ski shows, floodlit tobogganing and ice skating. Don’t miss the First Tracks experience above Lermoos either, which gives you access to the slopes before anyone else. Skiing down untouched pistes as the first light of the day hits the mountains is the perfect way to experience the unspoilt nature of this very special Tirolean gem.
