As soon as the winter comes, the otherwise quiet mountain villageof Mitterfirmiansreutchanges into a winter sport centre and local life takes on intensity. Between Christmas and the end of March, the ski resort around Almberg (1139 above the sea level) is usually covered by continuous blanket of snow. In case of, and contrary to all expectations, shortage of snow, the Großer Almberg and Kleiner Almberg ski slopes are snowed artificially. The ski centre offers its visitors five modern double-chair ski lifts and one single-chair lift with a total transport capacity of 7.000 persons/hour and mechanically treated ski slopes. Under the peak of Almberg, there is the main crossroad of local skiing trails. If you are lucky with weather, you can hardly fail to notice the alpine massif that fringes a large part of the south skyline. Having enjoyed the view, you can choose your way down. Three directions can be chosen to go down the Almberg. The choice consists of one blue ski-slope, almost equally wide as long, furthermore one narrow blue ski-slope leading through forest and the top of the day is the red one with number 4, equipped with a new double-chair lift. The slope is relatively new just like the accompanying double-chair lift and has an even and regular shape and decent width. Supply of well preserved artificial snow functions as a snow foundation and compensates the handicap of a south-oriented slope. If properly populated, this slope would suit the race carvers as well. On the contrary, the above mentioned blue ski-slope is built for quit family down-hill skiing and easy curve carving. However, a faster skier is likely to taste is only once and then will start looking for something more 'cool'. Yet, a family with children can spend a pleasant afternoon on it. The other blue slope leads a skier through forest on the northern part of the hill and further on to an illuminated meadow with a ski-lift. The visual map shows that there is one more ski-slope in the area. It lies under the parking place and leads down the North Slope all the way to a valley creek that forms the border between the Czech Republic and Bavaria. Although the slope is supported by a somewhat less comfortable double T-bar lift, it is difficult to say goodbye to it. The wide slalom ski-slope with a sharper section in the middle offers to a good skier perhaps everything that can be looked for in these conditions. Its quality is usually intensified by a low number of visitors. If you can’t manage to brake in time under the slope, you will find yourself back in the Czech Republic.Two skiing schools offer to beginners, false beginners or to those who want to get retrained to carving skis or snowboard an opportunity to learn within a couple of hours how to elegantly master every ski-slope.
For the youngest participants (from 2 years) is on the sunny side of the mountain the course “skiing for juniors”. Here the can gain their first experience with the “magic skis”. In one part of this closed area you’ll find 2 “magic carpets”, a mini ski lift, a carousel, and a “warm” playhouse with toilet.
