Ski Resort Rating: Rate Spitzingsee

As Spitzingsee is only 40 minutes from the centre of Munich it´s getting crowded on week-ends. But they got 2 new big chair lift´s that work pretty well. However, be aware of heavy traffic-jams all the way from/to Munich.
It is the first mountain range getting hit from the snow clouds arriving from the north, unloading large amounts of snow regularly and offsetting the lack of altitude (this fits for all German alpine resorts. At mid-winter usually the 2000m high Nebelhorn near Oberstdorf f.e. offers more snow than the 3000m high Sölden area located south in Austria).
Spitzingsee isn´t very big but works well for a 1 or 2 day trip. If you´re planning to stay longer think about buying the 'Alpenplus card' covering all nearby resorts, even some smaller Austrian spots.
Unusual for a resort of this size, Spitzingsee offers a very good snow park for all levels, even pros find they are challenged on well shaped 20+ meter jumps. Expect a big variation of jumps and rails, but no half-pipe.
