Some unusual facts ...

We go back a long way.

In 1895, the first mountain inhabitants in the Rothaar mountain region first took to their skis, and by 1907, the first ski festival was held. Since the Sauerland winter sports arena was founded in 2003, at least one new, high-convenience chair lift or one cabin cable car has been built every year. Today, the skiing areas in Winterberg and Willingen are among the most modern in Germany. More about where we come from ...

We do still have winters !

The number of winter sports days in the higher altitudes of the Rothaar uplands has even increased over the last 20 years. One contributing factor has been winters that have only changed insignificantly compared to earlier years. See here for more information on climate change ...

For us, convenience is important.

oday, 670 energy-efficient snowmakers ensure even more reliable snow coverage in the Sauerland winter sports arena, and for better quality on our pistes. Every day, over 50 piste devices get the best out of the snow that is produced.

More about our certification and piste maintenance

We are an environmentally friendly travel destination.

An outward and return journey to the Caribbean by plane with 200 passengers consumes just as much energy as the basic snow production for 65 km of pistes in the Sauerland winter sports arena. Short journey distances of just 2-3 hours in most cases ensure a more positive energy balance than for other holiday regions.
