Winter activities


Among are the steepest slopes north of the Main, but also a lot of easy beginner slopes. The majority of the lifts (60 lifts), including six six-person lifts, are connected by a joint ticket system. With the remotely readable key cards you can quickly and easily walk through the checkpoints. They are valid for five of the ten largest ski resorts in Winterberg.

Ski carousel Altastenberg

You can’t find almost nowhere such a variety of descent options, as the ones at the foot of the Kahler Asten.

Eschenbergliften Niedersfeld

Near the campsite in Niedersfeld, directly on the B 480, is the ski Eschenberg with 3 lifts.

Skigebied Ruhrquelle

Broad, flat slopes and snow-sure, that is the ski Ruhrquelle.

Skigebied Hildfeld

Family friendly ski area with 600-meter track.

Skiliftcarrousel Winterberg

Here you can find snow and ski from the highest level. Beginner skiers and parents with children will appreciate the nine comfortable chairlifts, which brings skiers quickly and safely back to the top.

Skidorp Neuastenberg -Postwiese-

More atmosphere in the resort.

Snow World Züschen

On a sunny plateau high above Züschen is Snow World Züschen. A real tip for families and people on the slopes that like some space around them.

Wintersportpark Sahnehang

The snowiest slope of the region, thanks to its location and powerful snowmaking.

Hoogtehelling Langewiese

The ski Langewiese belongs to the highest resorts in Sauerland.


With the whole family or with friends, snow tubing is great fun. You get pure zest for life and it works as a vitalizing power shower. The one who likes the wintery white, but doesn’t feel like skiing, should just take one of the many hills for snow tubing in the Holiday World Winterberg. Ten hills for snow tubing, out of which three are snowy and have runway lighting, are just waiting to be glide on. You’re always comfortable on the mountain with one of the six snow tubing lifts. Snow tubes are for rent everywhere. Also it is a lot of fun to glide with the air-filled rubber tires and snow tubes, on the special snow tubing slopes in Snow World Züschen.


Snowboarding is great in Winterberg. There are so many runs, that you can hardly try all in one day, from easy to jet black. Here a snowboard World Cup already took place. You go up very relaxed in one of the many chairlifts.


Just stop, inhale and enjoy. Sense the tranquillity that surrounds you; the blue sky above you; the pure, cold air that fills your lungs. Far from civilization’s bustle your senses widen and take in things unnoticed before: the glistening frost on the trees’ branches, the trails that deer left behind, squirrels and rabbits on their search for food. Nature’s sleeping beauty – experience it on a hike through Wintersports Arena Sauerland.

By playing in the enchanted and colorful Kids Playlands, children fearlessly take their first steps on snow. Many of the ski areas in the Wintersports Arena have constructed these little children’s paradises. Often there are also safe and easy-to-use conveyor belt lifts to help the little ones remount after the enthralling experience. One of these resorts that features Kids Playlands is Postwiesen-Skigebiete Neuastenberg, which is just a walking distance from Kristall Apartments.


Directly at the ski-Postwiesen you can find the famous après ski venues. Experience the finest Après-Ski-bars on five locations. You can also choose something slightly quieter: in order to warm up or for a friendly gathering, you can meet friends and holiday guests on terraces, in bistros and restaurants in and around the Postwiesen-Ski area.
