The perfectly groomed trails aren’t only perfect for experienced cross-country skiers. There are plenty of easy routes for beginners as well.
Pure cross-country joy on 131 kilometres of trails
Time to hit the trail! Amidst the Wetterstein range, Sonnenspitze, Grubigstein and the impressive Zugspitze, cross-country skiers encounter a true eldorado. The well-developed cross-country ski network encompasses more than 131 kilometres of trails – for fans of standard cross-country skiing as well as the skating version.
Trail-tip for guaranteed snow: On the Golf loop trail in Ehrwald (Golfino main entry point with infrastructure, car park and info point), artificial snow is used to ensure perfect cross-country skiing fun even on days with warmer temperatures. In combination with its sunny location and an unobstructed view of the Zugspitze, the 2.7-km loop trail is a true athletic highlight.
Tip: Info points with overview boards at the main entry points.
Long-lasting cross-country pleasure: The longest trail – the Arena trail with about 40 kilometres in length – leads you through various towns in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. With a level of difficulty between easy and moderate, it’s suitable for beginners too.
And if you’d like to breathe some high-altitude air: Several kilometres of the trail network are high-altitude trails and thus have guaranteed snow until spring. What else is guaranteed on these trails? A breathtaking view of the mountains in the region!
Good to know: Whether a trail gets groomed or not depends on the weather conditions. Please have a look at the info about which trails are currently open for cross-country skiers!
