The regions of Lermoos and the neighbouring Ehrwald and Biberwier form the so called “Snow Arena of Tyrol and Zugspitze”. The excellent ski slopes for all levels of skiers are well served by several chairlift. The ski lifts can be easily accessed from both ends of the village. The major skiing area is situated on the flanks of the impressive Grubigstein where you will be stunned by the amazing panoramic views of the surrounding valleys and mountains, the neighbor village of Ehrwald and the Zugspitz Glacier.
Skiing is divided into two skill levels. The more experienced skiers can pull down from the higher area, while the lower slopes are for intermediate and beginners. Alternatively, harder skiing is possible slightly off the main slopes where you can also stop at a charming mountain hut with incredible views. The runs on this side are only red and black, being the harder groomed pists available. There two possibilities to reach the top of the slopes – the Hochmoos chairlift and Grubigsteinbahn gondola. They both will take you to one and the same spot and your choice can be determined by the location of your hotel.
