A PLACE THAT ENRAPTURES CROSS-COUNTRY SKIERS
Practising cross-country skiing means both endurance training and nature experience. Nordic skiing, in fact, involves the entire musculoskeletal system: not only the leg muscles, but also the back and neck muscles. It is the best way to improve the mobility of numerous joints and the vertebral column. The physical activity in the pure air, amid snow-covered mountains, is really a dream. So indulge yourself with great cross-country skiing holidays in Saalfelden!
150 kilometres of trails for both skating and classic style
No matter whether you prefer climbing vigorously using the double-pole technique or gliding smoothly along a narrow track through the snow-covered landscape, you can start right in front of the house on a track which is part of a trail network of 150 kilometres, leading to the neighbouring towns of Maria Alm, Maishofen and Leogang as well as to the Biathlon-Centre of Hochfilzen. You will find here groomed trails of any level of difficulty for both classic and skating style – prevalently graded from easy to moderately difficult. You can safely store your equipment in our garage.
Trails – graded from easy to moderately difficult::
- “Klingler Loipe” trail (leading to “Urslautal” golf course), 5.4 km, classic and skate
- “Ramseider Loipe” trail (runs just in front of the house), 6.4 km, classic and skate
- “Lenzing Loipe” trail, 10.0 km, classic and skate, connection to Leogang
- Floodlit trail at Lake “Ritzensee”, 2.5 km, classic and skate, daily until 10.00 pm!
These trails are characterised by gentle climbs and short descents, being ideal for less proficient cross-country skiers or for a short workout.
