Lots of construction still, though. If I'd had a choice, I would have waited until the site was more complete.

The highest mountain in Germany. They have a skiing season until mid March. Beginners beware as it has only blue, red, and black pistes. The famous Kandahar slope is here ( although I am not good enough to try it)
