Good to know...
Trails in Fieberbrunn
Three medium-difficult cross-country skiing trails for skaters and classic skiing are waiting for cross-country guests in Fieberbrunn. The Dandler-trail offers an easy practice trail on the first kilometres, which is also ideally suited for beginners and provides the option (medium-difficult trail) of skiing all the way up to Hochfilzen and on to neighbouring Pinzgau. The Reither trail serves as a connecting trail to the Dandler trail and can be used directly from the valley station of the Bergbahnen Fieberbrunn. One of the most scenic cross-country skiing pistes is surely the Weissach-trail, located slightly above Fieberbrunn. A section of this trail (about 2.5 km) is floodlit and can thus also be used in the evening. For experienced cross-country skiers there is also the possibility to ski from the Bergbahnen Fieberbrunn to the lake Lauchsee and back again - the lake also invites you to take one or the other photo stop!
Trails in Hochfilzen
Hochfilzen offers cross-country skiing guests four trails of various difficulty levels for skaters and classic skiing. The Village trail and Warming trail are best suited for beginners or for cross-country skiers who like to take a somewhat more leisurely approach. The Pass-Griessen-trail runs across the state border to Salzburg all the way to Tödlingwirt Inn in Leogang, and with its around 10 km is rated as medium-difficult. And the Dominik Landertinger trail, named after world-class biathlete Dominik Landertinger who hails from Hochfilzen, a difficult (black) trail is now open to our cross-country skiing guests which requires endurance and sufficient strength.
Trails in St. Jakob in Haus
St. Jakob in Haus offers cross-country skiing guests a trail of around 4 km length, which is named "Sunshine trail" for a reason. Here you can enjoy your laps in wonderful sunshine from dawn to dusk. At the Bergbahn Pillersee there is also the option of continuing on the connecting trail to St. Ulrich am Pillersee and Hochfilzen.
Trails in St. Ulrich am Pillersee
The holiday resort St. Ulrich am Pillersee offers five cross-country ski trails of various difficulty levels for skaters and classic cross-country skiers. The two blue cross-country skiing pistes Au-trail and trail-St. Ulrich feature easy routing with only slight elevation gain. Somewhat more challenging are the panoramic trail and the connecting trail along Wiesensee lake to Hochfilzen. For all those looking for a challenge, the FIS-race track Geiselbühel packs a punch. The around 5 km long route demands all the strength and endurance one can muster and is recommended only for experienced cross-country skiers!
Trails in Waidring
In Waidring there are five trails for our cross-country skiing guests in various difficulty levels, for skaters and classic cross-country skiers. For beginners and leisure skiers, there are the village trail, the practice trail and the Strub trail to enjoy. More ambitious cross-country skiers can use the Blachholz trail and Steinberg trail. The Race-Skate trail in the centre of Waidring is designed as a pure skating-trail, and recommended only for experienced skiers.
