Cross-Country Skiing in our Holiday Region
The hoar frost lends a magical sparkle to nature, while Old Man Winter supplies the perfect surface for our cross-country trails. On narrow skis, using either classic or “skating” technique, our trails promise a great workout and pure recreation. Enjoying the sunshine and an enchanted winter wonderland – that’s what XC skiing in UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburg’s Lungau is all about.
The region as a whole offers an exciting cross-country infrastructure, including a total of around 150 kilometers of trails tracked for both classic and skating technique; the perfect setting, then, to work on your technique, endurance and speed. Alpine trails on the Katschberg, Prebersee and Schönfeld promise ideal conditions. Discover the pioneering spirit at the new Lignitztal Cross-Country Center, an alpine trail outside Mariapfarr with fascinating information about snowmaking with manmade snow, and guaranteed cross-country conditions even in winters when snow has been hard to come by elsewhere.
