Nebel Cable Car in Oberstdorf
The highest skiing region in Allgäu offers guaranteed snow, made even faster and more efficient by modern snow-making equipment.
Winter sports fans and holidaymakers can enjoy safe and unadulterated winter fun up until the beginning of May with skiing and snowboarding on 13 kilometres of piste – including the 7.5-km valley run, which has snow-making equipment.
The large terrace is perfect for sun lovers.

Skiing at Fellhorn/Kanzelwand
36 kilometres of varied and excellently prepared piste, incl. 4.3-km and 5.7-km valley descents (with snow-making equipment) and mogul slopes, 14 fast and comfortable cable cars and lifts are available to skiers and snowboarders in the Fellhorn and Kanzelwand skiing area. The skiing area of Fellhorn/Kanzelwand, covering the Germany-Austria border, is characterised by comfortable 6-seater chairlifts.
Below the middle station of the Fellhorn cable car is where kids can also make great leaps: in the 'Easypark' and 'Funslope', a special fun area for kids and beginners.
Crystal Ground, the Snowpark at the Kessler Lift adjacent to the valley terminus of the Kanzelwand cable car in Riezlern (Kleinwalsertal), has snow-making equipment and offers lines for both beginners and those who are more advanced.

Skiing at Söllereck
Five of the 12 excellently prepared runs are complete with snow cannons and are guaranteed to be available throughout the winter. The Höllwies lift is Germany's longest ski tow and particularly popular with locals. The slopes are a little more demanding, offering great fun for more advanced skiers in particular. The Höllwies piste is a former FIS racing run, which is now a completely natural ski run. The slopes at the Schrattenwang lift are the highest situated ones in the Söllereck skiing area. The slopes at the Ochsenhöfle lift are fantastically wide and offer plenty of room. Beginners will find learning to ski particularly easy on the slopes at the Wannenköpfle lift.

Skiing at Grasgehren
In Grasgehren beneath Riedberger Horn - reachable via the Riedberg pass at Obermaiselstein - there is a sunny high-altitude family skiing area where snow is assured; with 11.1 km of slopes and 1 double chairlift, 3 ski tows and children’s lift. Because of its location at an altitude of 1,400 to 1,700 metres, Grasgehren is one of the areas in Allgäu with the best guarantee of snow, which is normally in operation from the end of November.
A ski bus runs daily from Obermaiselstein (3 km from Fischen) to the skiing area.
