Ski/Board from Munich in FebHi
Apologies if I'm duplicating a question but cant find the exact answer i'm looking for.
I'm looking into a short break somewhere in Europe in mid-feb and was thinking Munich could be a good option, I was wondering how easy it is to do a day trip snow boarding (or skiing) from Munich and/or if it's possible to do a one night trip from there i.e. one night in Munich, then a night in the mountains
I am a beginning, but my partner is pretty good, so would need somewhere with easy enough slopes for me ... oh and to hire all equipment.
I think you can get trains places, but still unsure of complete timings/logistic
Any help would be greatly appreciated - or if I'd be better pickign another city, I'm flexible as havent booked any flights yet
Thanks in advance

2Garmisch-Partenkirchen is served at least hourly by train from Munich. Ski areas there are Zugspitze and Garmisch-Classic. The best deal to get from Munich (or Munich Airport) to Garmisch-Partenkirchen (and back) is a Bayern Ticket.
Start: München Hbf
