Ski area Kössen - Walchsee - Oberaudorf

With your lift pass, you can ski in 3 ski areas of the Alpen-Plus-Region, of which comprise a total of around 45 km of piste: Hochkössen, Walchsee am Zahmen Kaiser, and Hocheck in Bavarian Oberaudorf.

The Hochkössen ski area belongs to Kössen, which has 11 lifts and 22 km of piste waiting to be explored. The family-friendly ski area leads up to an altitude of 1,690 m and counts as one of the most snow-secure ski areas in Tyrol. Thanks to its geographic position on the northern border of the Alps, these pistes can be continuously skied on from mid-December to the beginning of April, and snow cannons provide for a safe ride into the valley. You can head out of Kössen with the modern 6-person cabin lift up towards the rustic "Bärenhütte". While beginners spend their time on the sunny, high plateaus, experts will find the black valley run a little more to their taste. Great deep snow areas, of which are secured, can be found on the lower mountain slopes and sometimes also on the valley runs.

In the neighbouring area of Walchsee lie a further 15 km of piste on the slopes of the Zahmen Kaiser, all of which are connected with nine lifts. Families will find this area especially appealing with its gently sloping, wide pistes in front of the gorgeous Kaiser mountain scenery. A large majority of the pistes are classified blue, and black pistes are nowhere to be found here. Little skiers will be catered to by the local ski school in the children's area with magic carpets, Native American tepees, snow tunnels and moguls.

Last but not least, the access point to the 4-person chairlift "Hocheck-Express," which belongs to the Hocheck ski area, is found near Oberaudorf. Here, you can expect to find another 8 km of pistes (including ski routes towards Bad Trißl). Night owls will find this area particularly fun, as the main run here counts as one of the longest illuminated runs in all of Germany. Take a ride 4 days per week under the floodlights until 9:00 p.m. Additionally, various other offers can be found besides the illuminated pistes, such as a funpark, a 3 km long winter toboggan run and a high level of snow-security. Moreover, newcomers will also find a modern practice piste.
