Nice ski alternative to Oberstdorf-Kleinwalsertal
Jan 2018 • Friends
A small but fancy ski-resort in Oberallgäu, a nice alternative to the OK ski-region and very close to it. The ski area is constructed around the "Weltcup Express", a 2 km straight and fair "Black" - host for the next Ladies Slalom and Giant-Slalom FIS World Cup event in March 2018. There are "Red" alternatives around, the longest being Familienabfahrt (2400 m). On the other side of the mountain lays the longest run, Marchenwiese, almost 4 km, with sections served by two lifts, I recommend only if the snow is ok and well groomed, otherwise one should use the poles to pass the numerous shallow parts.
The major drawback is the low height of the Ofterschwang Horn (1400 m) which makes the area prone to higher temperatures and capricious weather. However, the placement makes its slopes somehow safe from the winds, kept open even when the other resorts are closed.
The good news is that Ofterschwang shares the cable ticket with Bolsterlang, situated a couple of kilometers to the South, a quite similar ski-resort, totalizing together a good 40 km of slopes.
The day ticket is less then EUR 40, with deductions for children, additional days etc.
Recommended for families with children.
