Cross country skiing in Bad Goisern, Gosau & Obertraun

Cross country skiing is a work-out for the whole body and is probably the most effective type of sport for those seeking to maintain good health and high levels of fitness.

Cycling, for example, uses approximately 35 per cent of our muscles, whereas cross country skiing has an impact on almost all of the body. We use about 90 per cent of our muscles, and metabolic rate is increased. Our minds benefit too from exercising in the fresh air.

We invite you to enjoy this wonderful sport in the holiday area Dachstein Salzkammergut. Bad Goisern offers on the Predigstuhl cross country skiing slopes with unique views, Gosau attracts you with 50 kilometers of perfectly prepared slopes in the valley and Obertraun is the secret spot for nature lovers.

Predigstuhl high-altitude cross country ski trail

Those who enjoy cross country skiing on holiday have come to just the right place. Plenty of snow is guaranteed at the Predigstuhl high altitude cross country ski trail in Bad Goisern which is situated at an altitude of between 1000 and 1200 metres above sea level. Equipped with cross country skis and poles, you are surrounded by the beauty of nature too. You will be amazed how extensive and varied the network of trails is. Here on your doorstep is one of the most exciting areas for cross country skiing in Austria. Whether you like to ski at a faster pace or take things a little easier and enjoy passing through snow-filled woodland which glistens in the sun, or crossing a spectacular hanging bridge, you will find the perfect trail to follow. When taking a quick pause for breath, you will enjoy stunning views of the vast Dachstein glacier in the distance. Wherever you are along the way, you will have a different aspect of the glacier.

 

Experience the beauty of nature

There are, of course, many cross country ski trails in Obertraun where you can explore the peace and tranquility of the Koppenwinkel Nature Reserve buried in snow, and in Gosau too. Following the trails you will discover many beautiful little corners of the region that you might otherwise miss. Simply visit one of the tourist offices located throughout the Dachstein Salzkammergut region and collect your complimentary cross country ski trail map.
