Cross-country skiing - a highlight for your winter holiday
Cross-country skiing for every level, from beginner to professional
Cross-country skiing is a sport that enjoys great popularity in Salzburger Land. Saalfelden has developed into a biathlon and cross-country skiing stronghold for Nordic athletes in Austria in recent years. Since the winter of 2014/15, the holiday region of Saalfelden Leogang has also been one of the “Cross-Country Ski Holidays”. Saalfelden's location in the middle of the Austrian mountains offers optimal cross-country skiing conditions. The extensive network of cross-country ski trails in Saalfelden and the neighbouring communities includes around 150 km of perfectly groomed double and skating tracks. In predominantly easy to moderately difficult terrain, cross-country skiing becomes an unforgettable highlight for all those who love this Nordic sport.
The ÖNORM signposting of the cross-country trails makes it possible for everyone to find their ideal trail based on a precise description of the trail length and degree of difficulty. The digital trail map provides an overview of the various and diverse cross-country skiing tours in the Saalfelden Leogang cross-country skiing region. The World Cup trails at the Ritzensee are challenging.
Cross-country skiing is healthy, easy on the joints, uses almost all muscles and is very good for the circulation. Sometimes you are completely undisturbed and can fully enjoy the fantastic panoramas. The floodlit cross-country trails in Saalfelden are also perfect for training in the evening. Did you know that the cross-country ski trail network in Saalfelden extends all the way to the cross-country biathlon World Cup metropolis of Hochfilzen?
Every year the elite of the biathlon meet here anew, bringing this sleepy little village, surrounded by the imposing Loferer Steinberge and the famous Kitzbühel Alps, to life.
