5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

We've tried almost all slopes and lifts in Garmisch Classic Area and it's just great!

“It's nice, Austria is better, but this is good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Convenient to a lot (including trains to Munich), GaPa has got it all. Yes, there's better to the South, but this is nice and convenient.

“Skiing at Garmisch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

Great for a weekend skiing, resort probs not big enough for much more, snow was good while we were there which meant runs to the valley were all open and in good condition, and these are the best, esp the Kandahar downhill run, will get the thighs pumping, 3km long black. Lift system was very good, queues were not bad at all and no pushing in like you get in France, lots of mountain restaurants to choose from, although they get busy if the weather closes in (which it did to us), we ended up eating currywurst and chips with snow on top, sat outside cos that was the only available seats....

“The most crowded and disorganised resort we've ever been to”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

The lift at Hausenberg is the most surreal thing. A total disorganised crowd that doesn't queue and just fight with each other to get into the lift. It would have been easy to organise a place to queue orderly.
The Garmisch ski school is to be avoided. A very profit oriented place, poor service, big mess and the teacher we got was the worst after gaving skied in more then 20 different places allover europe.
To buy skipass another nightmare of nonending wild queues

Very few restaurants in the mountain
Nature is beautiful, fortunately
Never again at this pkace
