Cable Car: 1
Main skiing area reached by bus or car.
The Lenggries ski area is located outside the town and can be accessed from two base areas - at Brauneck (closest to Lenggries) and Wegscheid.
Both areas are served by a regular ski bus and extensive parking is available at the bottom of the lifts.
The Brauneck area has a number of beginners lifts near the car parks which are perfect for practising before taking the impressive journey up the Brauneck cablecar..
From the top of the cablecar it is possible to link into the rest of the area by heading straight away from the restaurant at the top.
The runs back down under the cablecar are rated black , with the runs under the neighbouring Garland chairlift often featuring sections of bumps.
Skiers taking the black runs from the top of the Brauneck cablecar have the option of stopping at the chairlift or continuing down the black slopes through the trees to the drag lifts at the bottom.
Skiers heading across into the rest of the area will find themselves crossing near the Ahorn chairlift with the option of a traverse to the Finstermünz chairlift.
At the Wegscheid base area, easy runs on the bottom drag lifts are good for beginners and confidence-building. Almost all the runs above these lifts are graded red or harder and the return to the base is exclusively via red runs.
The rest of the Lenggries ski area is accessed via the Milchhäusl drag lift and then the Ahorn chairlift. Heading to the left at the top of the lift takes the skier into the bowl of the Finstermünz chairlift.
Runs head off in varied directions from here with three drags providing a variety of difficulty levels. A traverse further to the left from the top of the Finstermünz chairlift gives access to the ski runs on the way to the slopes near the Idealhang drag lifts.
Although these runs are short they are less busy and provide spectacular views along with excellent possibilities in freash snow.
A return to Wegscheid from the Finstermünz area is via the long and enjoyable red runs from the top of the Florihang draglifts to the base area.
Lenggries is little known on the international ski market but has long and challenging runs with a variety of terrain. The location in the Karwendel offers spectacular views and the area is well-furnished with ski huts for refreshments. Weekends can be busy with crowds from the nearby towns and cities.
