incredible lifts and gondolas from start to finish with the best views i've ever seen. the zugspitse overlooks the entire region at around 3000 meters high.. scattered around the entire mountain are bars pubs grills and small eateries .. where you can fill up on great local beer and foods. the trails are the best i've ever been on .. long and well groomed powder and packed powder.. great natural snowfall .. the only bad part i noticed was the 2 seperate lift tickets you needed to purchase for the classic valley and the zugspitse area.. i snowboarded on both areas numerous times and i kept coming back for the incredible views and the awesome ski trails. the town itself is cozy and alot of different lodging available. you need more than 1 day to experience all the zugspitse has to offer.. overall i give my days spent there 8.5 out of 10
