We are staying in Schliersee and one night at 8pm. We left Karma Bavaria and went up to the mountain and did a night hike with Horst Jenicek.
He supplied the snow shoes and head lights, we had never done a hike like this before so did not know what to expect. It was a lovely quiet experience just the three of us hiking across the snow, sometimes it was very deep especially down in the valley walking beside the trees, it was like a fairy land with hundreds of big Christmas Trees covered in snow, absolutely beautiful a very unique experience. Every now and then we would stop and listen to nature, one could hear your own heart, so quiet and peacefull.
We walked till 11pm, so we covered a lot of ground, fantastic exercise. It was about 7 below but we never felt cold , working too hard I guess.
This is a lovely area , enjoy it if you get the chance and maybe do a night hike but with someone like Horst who knows the area and what he is doing, not on your own .

Date of experience: December 2017

This place was ready for skiing just after the first snow fall. It has all the facilities that the skiers need.

Either Winter or Summer time: during weekends and Bavarian school holidays it is always overcrowded....therefore you should arrive very early getting some parking slots near cable car station.
Lot of people come from Munich area as is is just one hour drive (if there is no traffic jam on highway) and nit so expensive as Garmisch area...
Perfect for families.

Good runs but not extensive, not high enough to have good snow all the time. Lift passes can be expensive so look for the best deal
