Cross-country skiing in the Lungau

250 kilometers of XC trails and more

A nature experience with a magic all its own as, in beautiful sunshine and clear air, you crisscross snow-covered valleys on XC skis. Cross-country enthusiasts discover fantastic conditions in the surroundings of St. Michael im Lungau. 150 km of cross-country trails, with 100 kilometers tracked for skating technique, plus snow guaranteed on 80 days out of the season - clearly, there's good reason why the Lungau region is so popular.

And that's why it shouldn't surprise anyone to know that the region has also been awarded the "Cross-Country Seal of Quality". The permanently tracked trail network, the clear signs at trail access points, plenty of parking spaces and even a cross-country school with equipment rental add the perfect finishing touches to this amazing cross-country experience.

As of mid-May, when the valley snows are becoming rather scarce, the alpine trails on the Katschberg, the Prebersee, in Thomatal and in Obertauern become a hot insider tip, both for Nordic skiers as well as everyone hungry for a bit of sunshine. Back at the valley floor, the cross-country opportunities are somewhat limited by this time of year.

There's no better time than the present to hit the trail - and our map is the perfect place to get started.

Don't happen to have the cross-country equipment you need? If so, visit one of our sporting goods stores in St. Michael im Lungau.
