Skiing between villages, we explore the deep pine forests, open valleys and meadows of the Black Forest. We stay in family-run hotels and B&Bs and spend one night in a homestay, getting an opportunity to experience local life. Ski terrain is a mix of flat and undulating tracks, covering roughly 20 to 25 kilometres per day.
