Winter in Ehrwald
There are 54 Ski-lifts offering 118km of downhill runs in the Zugspitz Arena, all of which can be used with your ‘Happy Ski Pass’. Snow is guaranteed as the Zugspitze (2996m) is included in the ski pass and the region now boasts ski runs up to 1900m.
Haus Karl's Ruh is 5 minutes walk from the Sonnenhang and Wetterstein lifts and there is a free bus service to all the ski areas in the Zugspitz Arena. The Zugspitz Blatt & Ehrwalder Alm are a 10 minute bus journey from the house.
