Snowshoeing & Ski touring off piste

Blue skies and loose powder snow provide the best conditions for your tour. Then, when the snow crunches softly with every step and the view becomes ever more majestic, you are very close to paradise.

As the routes are tailored to the clinet's needs, both beginners and advanced skiers will have a great time when booking a guided tour. Mostly, the tour will trake place between 10:00 and 13:00 hours.

Enjoy the peace and quiet while cross-country skiing

When your skis glide through the cross-country ski trail, the perfect moment has arrived. Winter enchants Lake Tegernsee and its valleys and turns them into a picture postcard winter wonderland setting. Kilometres of well-maintained cross-country ski trails through quiet, snow-covered valleys and up into the heights leave nothing to be desired. A network of more than 100 km of branching cross-country ski trails, a variety of different routes paired with the charming landscape, offer a fantastic experience for cross-country skiing and skating. The villages of Rottach-Egern, Gmund, Kreuth and Bad Wiessee offer trails from easy to difficult and the most beautiful panoramas of the villages, the Bavarian Pre-Alps and Lake Tegernsee.

Skiing and fun on the slopes at Lake Tegernsee

Blue skies, powder snow, perfectly prepared slopes and on top of it all the gorgeous views. We think these are the ingredients for a perfect skiing holiday. The Tegernsee Valley and the surrounding mountains are the largest connected ski area in the Bavarian Pre-Alps. With numerous blue, red and black slopes, there is a run down the hills for every level of skiing ability and skiing style. Families can take a relaxed approach to skiing or sledging at the Kirchberg lift.

With a total of 5 Hirschberg lifts, the small, family-friendly ski area on the Hirschberg is also only about 10 minutes by car from the Parkhotel Egerner Höfe.
