Cross-country skiing in Kaprun

Active, sporty winter holidays on the cross-country ski trails

Whether using the classic style and down in the valley, or sporty at nearly 3000 m up in the mountains, by day or night, the range of cross-country skiing in Kaprun and in the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area has something to suit everyone’s taste. The Zell am See Kaprun ski area is home to around 23 km of skating trails for active winter sports people. Maybe after a day’s skiing in the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area you still fancy an energetic cross-country skiing session in the evening. If so, the night trails in Kaprun and Zell am See are lit until 10 PM.

Cross-country skiing in the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area

There are perfect conditions for cross-country skiers to indulge in their favourite hobby on the glacier from early autumn through to early summer. The 3 km Loipe (prepared for both classic and skating) at 2900 m above sea level provides snow-sure conditions, and also has all the advantages of high altitude training. There are ski hire and cross-country ski service facilities on site. The high attitude Loipe on the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See offers an alternative for winter holidaymakers.

Tobogganing is always a wonderful experience. During the day with the whole family, or in the evening as a couple in the moonlight, or on the lit toboggan run, with exercise and fun guaranteed. A 2 km toboggan run takes you from the Jausenstation Guggenbichl on the Maiskogel down to the valley and is open until 11 PM.
