Skiing & Snowaboarding around Lindau
Lindau is on the edge of the Alps, right on the Austrian border, so it is quick and easy to get to the slopes or to the snowy landscapes of the Vorarlberg or Allgäu regions. Thousands of kilometres of pistes with state-of-the-art lift systems are less than an hour’s drive away, or are easy to reach with the ski train or bus. No need to worry about car parking and snow chains – take the bus or train to the skiing regions in the Arlberg, Montafon, Klostertal, Brandnertal and more. And with the Vorarlberg public transport ticket, you even get a discount on your ski pass.
The Pfänder cable car is located on the shores of Lake Constance, just a few minutes from Lindau. Offering spectacular views over the lake, the Pfänder mountain is perfect for people who are trying skiing for the first time. At a height of 1,064 metres, six kilometres of well-groomed pistes and two drag lifts are the perfect place to take to the slopes. When there is enough snow it’s even possible to ski down to Bregenz or Lochau.
Ski- und snowboard lesson with Timm Stade
For anyone who is still a little wobbly on their skis, it’s a good idea to take a skiing or snowboarding course with Timm Stade and his team at the Alpenarena Höchhäderich, about 45 km from Lindau. They offer courses for all abilities throughout the winter from mid-December to mid-April. No matter whether you want a private course or group lesson, whether you are beginner, advancer, expert or a full professional – families with children are the centre of attention here. In addition, freeride courses and skit tours are offered.
