We've just spent a long weekend here. My son is an expert boarder, I'm an intermediate skier. Our first day it was cold and cloudy and we went up the Zugspitz. The snow there was beautiful due to the altitude and the pistes were largely empty with no lift queues. The pistes were all blue to red but no poling required and there wasd powder to the sides of the pistes to play on. Had an excellent pint of Franziskaner weissbeer Royal at the glass enclosed bar mid pistemap. It was very cold and the altitude tired me out but an excellent day.
Sunday was surprisingly sunny so lots of queues at the classic area. We had expected this area to be better but were disappointed as the harder runs were icier than at the Zugspitz and we seemed to spend alot of time on narrow green roads requiring poling.
If you don't mind the cold (I used a neoprene facemask and balaclava) the Zugspitz has the better skiing (on this weekend anyway).
Bavaria is beautiful though so I'll be back.
