The weather on the Schauinsland mountain differs considerably from that in the Rhine valley, and not just with respect to lower temperatures due to the difference in altitude. The average yearly precipitation amounts to around 2000l/m², three times that of Freiburg. This can result in restrictions for the weather dependant scooter trips. The Kachelmann-weather station at the Schauinsland mountain cable car station offers a fairly reliable weather forecast to assist with the planning of scooter trips.
 
The webcam shows the view from the top station facing north towards Freiburg. The uppermost part of the scooter track is in the foreground of the image. This area is exposed to the wind, which may lead to the closure of the Schauinsland cable car for safety reasons during stormy westerly weather conditions.
