Challenging runs in a high alpine landscape The Wendelstein is a mecca for nature-lovers and individualists. Those wishing to ski there should ensure they’re in control. The 3.8 km long eastern run down to the Mitteralm has been labelled a black run, and is very popular with the locals. The 5 km long western run to the cable car’s valley station is a red run. Bockstein and Lacher drag lifts provide access to other runs.
