Münchner Ski Party

Out of the tent, off to the slopes

Snow at the Wiesn? No, winter is not coming yet and people of Munich's high-society are not powdering their noses here. Au contraire! At this challenging obstacle parcours it is probably an advantage to still have a clear mind.

What's special: Fun in the shacks at the Wiesn

The mountains are calling, or at least the München Ski Party. But the 400 square meters large attraction won't give you an atmosphere like the one that you have at après ski parties or serve you some hot wine, no, not at all. It is an obstacle parcours where you have to prove your balance and dexterity. There is a turning around labyrinth made out of glass, some vibrating floors and a lot of rubber ropes, that you have to pass. If you do not want to get wet you should be careful at the water obstacles. Special highlight: There even is a real snow cannon.

Münchner Ski Party: Proove your skills

Münchner Ski Party offers fun and action for everybody. You do not have to be a certain age to take part at the obstacle parcours, but you should still be able to stand safely on your feet. Smaller guests might even have a little advantage at some spots. At this ride there is a demanding track that you can sometimes compare to a black mogul slope. But you do not have to be scared: Somehow everyone will come back down.

Münchner Ski party for backseat drivers: Snow and cold temperatures at the Wiesn

Let's hope that the artificial snow are the only flakes that we will see at the Wiesn this year. The last time when there was real snow at the Oktoberfest dates back to 2002. Temperatures below zero do occur sometimes, though. The record for the coldest Oktotoberfest day was set a long time ago and, if you ask for our opinion, we hope it will never be reached again or broken. On September 29 1936 the temperature was -2.5 degrees Celsius.
