In 1963, the first ski lift was erected on the Wasserkuppe. The flood of visitors was so great, that the offering was expanded to include three additional lifts the following year. In order to increase the attractiveness of the ski area, the lift offering has been expanded over the past years. In addition, the Maerchenland (fairy tale land) Ski Kindergarten awaits its small guests, who delve enthusiastically into skiing while their parents enjoy the bigger ski slopes. The children can test their ability on the approx. 100 m long slope and can then ride the "magic carpet" people mover back to the top of the mountain. The snowboarders test their abilities on the rails and in the halfpipe while presenting an exciting and entertaining show. The percentage of snowboarders has increased continually over the past years - the halfpipe and the rails on the Wasserkuppe have taken this trend into consideration.
