Garmisch Classic Ski Resort Germany

The quintessential German ski town of Garmisch Partenkirchen (or Ga-Pa for short) is ground zero for skiing in Deutschland. The town has the nation's largest standalone ski resort on its doorstep, complete with World Cup standard piste trails & modern lift system - Garmisch Classic.

Nearby is Germany's highest peak, the looming Zugspitze (2962m). The ski resort of the same name is the nation's highest and most snow sure, topping out at just below 2720m. Both ski resorts are connected to Garmisch Partenkirchen by trains, cable cars, gondolas & cog railway.

The proximity of the resorts to better known skiing areas in the Tyrol & Arlberg of Austria make it a perfect addition to any road trip or Europe ski safari. 

Garmisch Classic Skiing Terrain

Garmisch Classic has an impressive set of statistics including a skiable vertical of over 1300m & a longest run of 9km. The terrain is very much all about the on-piste groomers. Advanced riders will enjoy the seriously fast valley runs, two of which are rated as intermediate, but should have sections marked in black! See the Garmisch Classic ski trail map here.

Garmisch Classic Accommodation

The village of Garmisch Partenkirchen is the ultimate German holiday destination & has oodles of quality Bavarian hotels & guesthouses. Previously two separate villages, Ga-Pa has two distinctly different faces. Garmisch is the more modern, lively & commercial side of the ledger. The Partenkirchen side of town is the opposite, having retained much of its traditional architecture & charm, it provides the most pleasant accommodation location.
