Cross-country skiing in Tyrol
on the most beautiful mountain plateau in the Alps.
For several consecutive years now the German Ski Association has voted the region among the world’s top cross-country ski areas – and that ranking is more than justified. Connecting the region’s five villages is a network of 279 kilometres of impeccably groomed trails covering all levels of difficulty. The ratio between classic and skating-style trails is pretty much evenly balanced and many sections have both types of trail running parallel to one another. Floodlit trails in Seefeld and Leutasch enable those who simply can’t get enough to continue doing their laps long after the sun has set. A special track in Leutasch that just opened last year offers cross-country skiing guests the chance to experience the unique natural surroundings in an intense and mindful way. Sunny platforms located at some of the most beautiful spots along the track offer little oases of peace in which to relax and simply enjoy the moment.
256 kilometres of cross-country ski tracks amid a unique mountain setting.
The network of cross-country ski tracks in the Olympiaregion Seefeld covers a total distance of over 271 kilometres and offers Nordic sport enjoyment for skiers of all abilities.
Information on advance ticket sales, ticket sale points, prices and concessions for the use of the cross-country ski trails /roller-ski circuit can be found here.
Owing to the ideal conditions in respect of its natural terrain, optimum altitude and fantastic infrastructure, Seefeld is a second-to-none sports destination for amateur and professional athletes.
From beginners to experienced skiers, the cross-country ski schools in the region’s villages offer courses tailored to the needs of cross-country skiers of all skill levels. The spectrum on offer ranges from children’s courses to professional race preparation. Clear, standardised sign-posting that includes information on track distances, levels of difficulty, elevation profiles and possible link-ups to other tracks make it easy for cross-country skiers to navigate the extensive network of trails.
The biathlon bug has hit Seefeld!
Since the winter of 2010, the Olympic village of Seefeld has been home to one of Europe’s most state-of-the-art biathlon facilities, which, of course, also came into use during the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games. The biathlon facility in Seefeld’s Nordic Competence Centre is designed to accommodate a total of 30 shooting ranges. 9 permanent ranges for small-bore rifles are currently in operation. The other 21 small-bore ranges were temporarily installed for the 2012 Winter Olympics. The centre also has a further 5 air-rifle shooting ranges.
The facilities, however, are not only used by professional athletes. Visiting guests too can enjoy a real taste of biathlon by taking part in one of Martin Tauber’s Cross Country Academy courses.
