Some of the routes here seem reasonably technically challenging, but there's not much for genuine beginners who have never skied before. A lot of the blue routes here are either impossible to access without braving much more difficult red routes or are really crowded and incorrectly rated for their difficulty for new skiers. This paucity of reasonable blues and no... More

The ski area isn't huge but ok for a weekend. There were quite big queues at the hausbergbahn gondola so you need to be there early , before ski schools or later. We drove to the next station, kreuzeckbahn which seemed quieter. you can catch a train from hausbergbahn to go to Zugspitze. We couldn't go up Zugspitze because of... More

Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a beautiful, idyllic town with some fun ski runs. Do your research before you arrive because the trail and lift systems can be hard to decipher and the lobbies are very crowded. The lifts also get very crowded on the weekends, and the culture at this place seems to be (instead of politely waiting your turn) the most... More

The great thing about this place is that there are three ski areas although sadly there is no link between the Zugspitzer and the other areas. The queues were a bit bad at the weekend. Our 3 year old had lessons and they were amazing. She was able to ski down a small slope after one lesson! Skiing is always... More

Everything about Garmisch is really great, I liked it so much that I mooved here on a few occassions. Firstly you need to get something very clear, Bayern (Bavaria) is not Germany... These people have a sense of humour and know how to party, they are well aducacted and respectable people with a real sense of pride in doing things... More

We visited the place in one Sunday in January. There were a lot of people on slopes with really poor skiing skills. Felt even dangerous to ski in normal speed. Many transition slopes where you actually need to work hard to get forward... and then you discover they lead you nowhere. Mixed quality of lifts. Some are really old and... More

A really good time skiing. Rather a traditional resort, and as such it seems to have fewer snowboarders than most places nowadays, but if you're here for siding down snow, then this is perfect. Snow quality is good, with artificially made snow lower down to keep the pistes open, and good grooming overnight. There are not so many blue runs,... More

Whilst the G-P ski area's not huge, it has some excellent runs and, when we were there at least, some of the best snow conditions. The views are stunning, and almost all runs are tree-lined, with some nice alpine restaurants dotted around the area. One word of warning though - it's not ideal for snowboarders, as even some reds have... More
