A quarter of the slopes in the Garmisch-Classic ski resort are marked as difficult. The long valley runs, especially the 3000 m long Kandahar slope, will challenge advanced skiers. The "Freien Fall" (free fall) with a 92% incline, which can be avoided, is also the steepest section of this World Cup ski slope. Freeriders will get their money's worth when snow conditions are good on the Osterfelderkopf, at the Hochalm, the Längenfelder lift and at the Bernadein lift. There are freeride checkpoints available for increased safety.
