While Germany is not necessarily the first country that comes to mind when one thinks about winter sports, it still has some good options for those who love to ski.
Especially the southern part of Germany, in particular Bavaria has many great slopes in the German alps. If you happen to be in year Munich, most winter sport resorts are not further away then an hour drive.
Right now however, they weather forecast for the holiday season in Germany predicts unseasonably warm weather. In fact, temperatures are so unusually high for winter right now that many winter sports locations cannot even use a snow cannon.
If you happen to be in Germany and want to experience fun in the snow you should therefore look at those places that are located above two thousand metres. Fortunately, Bavaria has plenty of those to offer.

Following the recent death of two horses at the Melbourne Cup, the horse racing industry is rejecting claims of cruelty.
Jamie Lovett, co-owner of Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist told the press that those who talk about animal cruelty at the races do not know about how the horses are really treated.
“I wish these guys would go to the track at five o’clock in the morning and see how these people care for their horses. There would be no argument if you could see.” he said to the press.
Last Tuesday, the race’s favorite Admire Rakti h became distressed and died of heart failure in its stall shorty after the race. Another horse, Araldo broke a rear leg on a fence and had to be put down by vets.
Spokesperson for The Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses, Ward Young wants a ban on the use of whips in racing as well as a ban on racing of two-year-old horses. He said: “We believe that pushing horses beyond their physical limits through use of the whip, and racing horses while underdeveloped at two years of age are significant factors as to why horses break down on the racetrack.” .
