Ski resort in Thuringia with lift facilities

Oberhof SNOWPARK is one of the most popular ski resorts in Thuringia, with an 800m long ski slope called the Fallbachhang. The combination of the high altitude and the artificial snow system means that the Oberhof ski area offers some of the best snow conditions in winter. In addition, a new 4-seater chairlift was built in 2018. The beginners’ slope is located in the lower third of the slope. Here beginners can learn more easily thanks to a 60-metre magic carpet and an easy, blue-marked slope.

For freestylers, there is a snow park at the middle station of the chairlift. They can test their skills on the Gastank, Kinked Box, Butter Box and other obstacles. With a length of 350m, the snow park offers plenty of space to let loose and have fun.
