One of the advantages of a day trip is that you don’t have to pack, so this is a perfect trip between ski weekends with a Sunday to catch up with the laundry. You’ll need to board the bus early so we can arrive at the slopes in time to get in several hours of skiing, boarding, sledding or snow-shoeing in an area you might never otherwise have thought of visiting during the winter. This is the ideal trip for the beginner to get a taste of the sport before investing in the whole paraphernalia and you will be able to employ the services of the excellent ski school which does a superb job of ensuring you are well fitted into boots and skis or boards while expertly nurturing your enthusiasm for the sport. Are you a skier tempted to try out boarding for a change?
This is your chance. Or if you want an excuse to try cross-country skiing and have a real calorie-burning experience, this is an ideal opportunity as there are over 1,700 km of prepared ‘loipes’ in the Black Forest region. Similarly, you might want to try your hand (or feet) at snow-shoeing and pause to take in the magical scenery while catching your breath!
Skiers and snow-boarders won’t be disappointed either as there are 27 ski lifts in the Feldberg and surrounding area with numerous prepared slopes varying from beginner to the challenging FIS World Cup run. Sunny slopes, lots of tree skiing, two kindergartens, a snowboard fun park, free-ride runs and a choice of restaurants make your day within the Feldberg ski lift network a memorable experience. Families will find plenty of sledding slopes for younger children – even the older folks can have tremendous fun scooting down the slopes on their bottoms (intentionally or unintentionally!)
An additional plus of this trip is that we will be travelling through spectacular scenery during daylight hours and the Black Forest provides glorious views as we drive past lakes and through a pristine snowy forest landscape. And don’t forget, you’ll be able to sleep in,
in your own bed, the next morning after all that physical exertion.
