Visitor Reviews of Feldberg

We have been to Feldberg for the past two years and have booked up to go again next year (2016).
If you're looking for perfect skiing or boarding, drinks promotions and Ibiza-style night life then you're looking in the wrong place. Feldberg is a quiet resort in the Black Forest. Travelling time from Calais is roughly 6-7 hours. We normally stay in Altglashutten, which is a short drive from Feldberg.
I would describe the area as 'hills' rather than 'mountains'. We have never been disappointed with the amount of snow on the ground. In the event of a dry spell there are snow cannons to top it all up. There is a good snow park which hosts international competitions. Last year we watched as they created the biggest jumps I have ever seen. The 6 person lift goes directly overhead and provides great entertainment!
In an earlier review, it was mentioned that there is a bridge linking the two sides of the resort. It was also mentioned that skis have to be taken off to cross the road between the two sides. This season (2015-16) there is a new 6 person lift and a new bridge joining the two sides of the valley. This means you can ski from one side to the other and then catch the lift back again. This will effectively double the size of the resort and the skiing area.
As beginners we found this a very friendly place. There are no nasty surprises on the slopes and it's a great place to learn. As a family we also found it cheap too! The price of a lift pass for a week was half the amount that they were charging in the Alps.
Parking is limited. Get there early if you are driving. Otherwise there is a good local bus service which takes you directly to the slopes. It is free to use if you have a tourist card from your hotel/accommodation provider and is paid for by means of a tourist tax. Alternatively, you can get free buses using your lift pass.
We love it at Feldberg. I suspect, however, that my kids will outgrow it much quicker than us and we will eventually find ourselves in the Alps with everyone else.
