Active Ski Expeditions is a specialist company that facilitates Group or School Ski Trips to the Oberallgäu region of Bavaria, Germany. The area is a little secret gem of the Alps giving fantastic skiing particularly in the lower and intermediate levels. Our aim is to make the whole process as easy as possible for the group organisers. We work on the philosophy of Safety - Enjoyment - Learning to give everyone the best, most exciting and progressive experience possible.

Ski Areas

There are in excess of thirty ski areas within fifty minutes driving time of our lodge or hotel. This means that it is possible to explore a new area every day. We have over 220 lifts and 550 kilometres of piste to choose from. Active Ski Expeditions can provide the correct level of challenging terrain for the standard of the groups on a daily basis. This gives all snow sports enthusiasts the best opportunity to be able to progress whether it be in skiing, snowboarding, freestyle or leading qualifications.
