Winter sports in Winterberg

27 kilometres of pistes, 26 lifts, 34 runs - and only 1.5 km to the start! Spend your winter holiday in the direct vicinity of the largest ski area north of the Main line. During the winter season you can experience pure skiing and snowboarding fun on almost 100 days - including rustic ski huts to stop at.

You don't feel like stress and looking for a parking space? Even with ski equipment you can easily reach the bus stop 80 m from the main house. From there you can take the bus to the slopes in no time at all.

The best thing about winter in the Sauerland? You can enjoy it not only on skis and snowboard. Numerous hiking trails invite you to go on wonderful winter hikes and you will also get your money's worth with touring skis. Afterwards, warm up with a delicious mulled wine or fragrant cocoa in our cozy restaurant with fireplace and winter garden.
