Cross-country skiing

25 kilometers of groomed trails await

Experience the joy of cross-country skiing on approximately 25 kilometers of groomed trails in Grossarl and Hüttschlag. The majority of these trails offer both classic tracks and “skating” lanes for a varied skiing experience.

Even when the snow is sparse, Grossarltal has the perfect solution: The "Reitwiese" loop in Grossarl boasts 2 hectares of snowmaking coverage, ensuring beautiful tracks and an ideal practice area for beginners, “pros”, and young cross-country enthusiasts.

Grossarl trail

Embark on your cross-country skiing adventure right there in Grossarl. With gentle gradients, the trail from Grossarl leads to the Kösslerhäusl heritage museum.

Starting at the "Reitwiese," the trail wends its way alongside the stream towards Hüttschlag, all the way to the Kösslerhäusl. This particular section allows you to practice either classic or skating technique. Beyond the Kösslerhäusl, the trail becomes a tad steeper, taking you over the Oflek. Depending on snow conditions, it might prove necessary to walk for 15 minutes or so. Then, the trail follows a leisurely meander back down along the stream towards Hüttschlag. After a 300-meter walk, you will join up with the Hüttschlag trail, returning via the same original route.

For more athletic cross-country skier, the "Reitwiese" features about 2.5 kilometers of looped trail with varying inclines for a really challenging workout, interspersed with flat segments for effortless skiing. For the kids, there’s even a cross-country obstacle course to enjoy.

Hüttschlag trail

The Hüttschlag trail starts just beyond the village center of Hüttschlag. Glide through the valley with only a slight incline towards the Wolfau area (classic style only). After the sports field, cross the road and ski uphill towards Karteisdörfl. Following a descent and a flatter stretch, you will come to the trails that loop around the Aschaustüberl.

Continuing with little to no incline towards the valley head in Hüttschlag, the trail loops past the Stockham farm – now an uphill stage. A descent then leads you back down to the valley, retracing your original route.

Next to the Aschaustüberl, the trail branches into several loops, offering a variety of routes. Athletic skiers can tackle the steep climbs and return via the serpentine trails, while those in the mood for a more leisurely experience may prefer the trail next to the stream. Here, the kids are also certain to be delighted by the cross-country obstacle course.

Night trails

In both Grossarl and Hüttschlag, you’ll find trails for night skiing that are lit up on certain days of the week. The approximately 2.5-kilometer night trail at the "Reitwiese" in Grossarl is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

In Hüttschlag, the illuminated trail around the Aschaustüberl extends for about 3 kilometers and welcomes cross-country skiers on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
