A world of its own, that’s cross-country skiing. Anyone familiar with Alpine skiing who has never before used the 42mm cross-country skis will find it hard to anticipate what awaits! In terms of challenge and aching muscles (because the whole body is put to use) and technical finesse. But in particular the potential for addiction. Once you have found your pace, the energy can flow and you can give free reign to your unbridled joy. Original winter landscapes glide past on the left and right, far away from the ski pistes and mountain railways. And it could continue forever, this pattern of using your sticks and legs - propelling yourself forward using your own energy. Despite - or perhaps because of? - the exertion, there is a sense of peace in your body and mind.
143 km of well-maintained skating and classic cross-country trails of all difficulty ratings await in Sölden and the Ötztal valley. You can train your fitness levels over a distance of 45 km on the wide, curved, flat routes of the valley basin in Längenfeld. Or are you ready for a taste of biathlon on the sunny Niederthai plateau?
