CROSS COUNTRY SKIING

With a network of 107km of cross country skiing routes just a stone's throw away from the chalet, any fan of the nordic sport will be in their element in our region. Whether you prefer a classic or skating style, the scenic routes that intertwine through our valley will provide endless entertainment whilst on your holiday. 

For the more experienced cross country skier, there are plenty of high-altitude routes that will get your heart pumping, including the high altitude training route at 2,900m on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. If you want to cover some distance, try the 200km 'Pinzga Trail' between Zell am See and Krimml. Below are some of our favourite more challenging cross country routes to try whilst you're here.

If you're a beginner, or prefer more of a gentle ski whilst taking in the sights, why not opt for a route that takes you through snow dusted forests or past historic castles, all the while with stunning panoramic mountain views. When doing a more gentle loop, we like to take a picnic and find a pretty spot to have lunch with a view. Below are some of our preferred easier cross-country loops to do.
