The ski area for the whole family!

Our Großer Arber is the biggest and most popular family ski resort in the Bavarian Forest!

Whether you prefer skiing, carving, ski tours or snowboarding - Großer Arber has the perfect slope for your abilities!

Beginners and returners to the sport can brush up on their skills in one of the most family-friendly ski areas in Germany. Our 6-person family chair lift - the first in the world with an automatic restraining bar for children - will take you up to the popular ArBär children’s area with children’s timed slope and four conveyors to keep young winter sports fans happy.

There are also 14 skiing and snowboarding schools in ArberLand, complete with professionally trained staff. Our friendly staff are always happy to help and would love to welcome you to one of the many courses for every age group and skill level.

‘If you can ski on the Arber, you can ski anywhere in the world’

While the kids are practicing hard under the supervision of our ArBär children’s area staff, our more experienced skiers can take the north chairlift and the 6-person gondola lift up to the base of Großer Arber’s summit. There are several different challenging routes back down into the valley.

The best known slope is the jet-black World Cup course, where many international skiing greats have proven themselves.
