The small skiing area on the Sorgschrofen, a peak in the Allgäu Alps, is making its contribution to climate neutrality

Mt. Sorgschrofen, a 1,600 m high elevation in the Allgäu Alps, connects Jungholz with the rest of Tyrol: It is located on Austrian territory, but the village as well as the skiing area are only reachable from Bavaria, making it the smallest Austrian enclave. On Dec 12, 1948, the first ski lift of the Tannheimer Valley was opened in Jungholz - quite a bit has happened since then. Today, the Adler Chairlift and the Sorgschrofen Cable Car start in the village and take you onto the slopes.
Especially families will feel at ease on the easy and moderate slopes and the two child resistant chairlifts. Several areas are dedicated to kids, such as the Snow Learnland and the popular N'Ice Bear Kinderland with archway-run, funny figures and fairy tale igloos to warm up. A few years ago, the Grizzly Family Snow Park at the new Schwand Lift has been added, an area for bigger kids and young people. But also the relaxing aspect doesn't go short: In a screened area called Sun Islands you can enjoy the landscape as well as pure relaxation in beach chairs and deck chairs.
The Sorgschrofen valley run right down to the village is divided into two parts: The upper slope is medium difficult, the lower part is easy. Two ski huts along the slopes invite to a rest - the Schrofen Hut and the Bischlagstadl Hut. By the way: The Pistenbullys in the Jungholz Skiing Area are operated with clean biofuel, in order to make a small contribution to climate neutrality.
