As soon as we walked through the door, people were smiling and helpful getting my son outfitted for his snowboarding class. Very organized and speedy. There wasn't much snow, but it was very pretty and well organized, and much less of a wait than zugspitze!

Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a small town surrounded by mountains. Its picturesque setting draws hundreds of thousands of tourists and ski aficionados every year which, at times, gets a little unnerving. There is a small pedestrian zone in both parts of the town; otherwise roads are narrow...More

I'd like to go skiing in this area. Do you know how I contact the actual resort to ask about ski rental and lift prices? Also, where did you stay in the town when you were here?
