The skiliftkarussell Winterberg is the largest connected skiing area of North Germany. 21 lifts, 30 downhills with approximately 32 kilometres of slopes are at your disposal.
There is also a Dutch-speaking ski school, ski school Der Brabander.
The first lift of Skiliftkarussell Winterberg is only 4 kilometres from Grönebach.
You can ski here not only during the day, but on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday also in the evening. That creates a very special atmosphere and the slopes are quieter in the evening.
If you have never skied before and want to start out quietly, there is also a small skiing area at 2 kilometres distance from Grönebach, the Ruhrquelle. This area also has its own ski school.
Winterberg and surroundings also offer a lot of opportunities for cross-country skiing with approximately 170 kilometres of spur trails at all levels.

At Skiliftkarussell Winterberg there are two sledge lifts, so you don’t have to pull up your sledge every time. Just sit on your sledge and be pulled up, and than sledge down on special sledge slopes.
Winterberg and surroundings are not only known as a hiking area in summer. Also in winter you can go for a beautiful walk.
