Winter fun in the Bavarian Forest
Skiing regions such as Mitterfirmiansreut, skiing region Hochficht, skiing region on the Dreisessel or Oberfrauenwald are located very close to our Spa Hotel Jagdhof in the Bavarian Forest. The ski runs are suitable for all standards and are therefore ideal for winter holidays.
Skiing in winter in the Bavarian Forest has become well-known particularly since there is a high snow probability compared to other regions.
Geyersberg: here there is a special children’s area, a ‘blue run’ with the degree of difficulty ‘easy’; with a cable lift and practice carousel the kids learn playfully how to stand on skis. Thanks to the snowmaking system, fun in learning the techniques of downhill skiing is ensured for children and adults.
The skiing region in Grainet with the degree of difficulty ‘difficult’ is a great pleasure above all for very sporting and well-trained skiers. Floodlit skiing is offered every Wednesday and Friday evening. Then it’s off to the nearby après-ski hut for a warming drink.
The ski slope in Solla with the degree of difficulty ‘easy’ is suitable for beginners and advanced skiers. The 600 m double-anchor lift is open daily from 9.30 am to 4 pm.
