Season start at Zugspitz glacier

The Zugspitze in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is the first resort in Germany to open it’s lifts (four of them, to be exact) for eager snowboarders.

The big opening is this Saturday, October 24th – last time the season started this early was in 2001! So if you are around, 120 cm of fresh snow and a bluebird forecast are more than tempting to get your shred on this weekend!

First event highlight of the season will be the SchneeFEST on November 28-29th, 2009. Together with Sport Scheck, this event will showcase the latest equipment in snowboarding and mountain safety, instructors of the German Ski Instructor Union will hold lessons for safe riding and a bit of swing music will get those of you moving, who are still in chilled out summer beach mood.
