There is no shortage of great mountains to hit up each winter in the Alps. Pending the right snowfall though can often make for a dull or exciting weekend. In Germisch Germany you will find a couple of Moutains for both experienced and beginners alike. The Kreuzeck, Osterfelder and Hausberg areas are connected to one another on the south side of the town and collectively make up the most diversafied of the two main Ski and Snowboarding areas in Garmish. This area features 4 Cable car lifts, 4 Chairlfts and 9 drag lifts. The most common cable car is the Hausberg lift and can be a long wait during the morning rush. However Kreuzeck or the Alpspitz cable cars tend to be a shorter wait regardless of the time of day and can be reached by taking the trolley located near the Hausberg lift. The trolley runs along the entire base of the mountain and stops at each of the cable car lifts before proceeding to the Zugspitze. The highest run on this mountain starts at 2050m and has a verticle drop of about 1350m, however one of the best runs is the famous Kandahar run, an Olympic Grade Black Run. Be careful as it can be icy and full of unskilled skiiers littering the run. A full run from the summit to the base will take apx an hour if traverse the entire mountain chain. There are several restaurants on the mountain and at the base for the mid day meals and rental equipment (if needed) can be found on jsut about every street corner.
