Sunset at the Gerkenstein with a view of the Rothaar ridge. All winter sports are at home here. Ski slopes with 100 years of tradition. High altitude cross-country skiing trails at an altitude of 750 m run directly below the Kahler Asten on the Rothaar ridge.
The weather station on the Kahler Asten records more than 100 snow days on average. This has not yet changed despite climate change.
