While Zugspitze may be the tallest mountain in Germany, Alpspitze is another popular splitboarding option as well. Either before or after Zugspitze, make the ascent to the summit at 2.628 meters above sea level, before enjoying a long and smooth run of 1.650 meters back down.
Outside of these two, which are some of the most popular peaks, there are plenty of other mountains to explore. Boasting roughly 850 kilometers of slopes, the Alps around Bavaria offer nearly endless opportunities for exploration.
Heading further west to Baden-Wurttemberg is another option. While the mountains are a bit smaller here, the black forest is always an enticing place to explore on a splitboard.
Average winter temperatures are generally between 0ºC and 5ºC during the winter months. Temperatures dip to below freezing higher up in the Alps. The winter tends to be the driest time of year, but Germany’s ski regions still receive roughly 70 mm of precipitation per month, ensuring sufficient snow.
Flying into Munich International Airport (MUC) is usually the first step in getting to German splitboarding territory. From here, you can rent a car or take buses and trains to your final splitboarding destination. Trains are by far the easiest and fastest method of transportation during the winter, although not the cheapest.
January to March. However, some guides offer trips until May.
