Cross-Country Skiing in Grossarltal

Cross-Country Skiing
You can enjoy cross-country skiing on around 25 km of tracked trails in Grossarl and Hüttschlag. For the most part, the trails in our region are tracked for classic as well as “skating” technique.

If the snowfall is ever not as abundant as we would like, Grossarltal has a solution: About 2 hectares of the trail at the “Reitwiese” in Grossarl also have snowmaking capability, providing both beautiful XC loops as well as an ideal practice area for beginners, advanced skiers as well as the up-and-coming cross-country stars of tomorrow.

Grossarl Loipe

Cross-country skiing in Grossarl

You can get your cross-country enjoyment underway right here in Grossarl. Without any climbs to talk of, this XC trail leads from Grossarl to Kösslerhäusl heritage museum.

Your starting point is the “Reitwiese”. The trail runs alongside the stream in the direction of Hüttschlag, to the Kösslerhäusl. This section allows you to use both classic and skating techniques. After the Kösslerhäusl comes a somwhat steeper section over the Oflek. In this part is a walk about 15 minutes possible. Afterwards, the trail offers an enjoyable skiing experience next to the stream to Hüttschlag. If you then walk about 300 meters, you will come to the Hüttschlag trail. Return via the same route. 

Cross-country skiers looking for more of a challenge prefer the Reitwiese. It is a loop, about 2,5 km in length, a combination of climbs that will appeal to more experienced skiers along with flatter segments. Here, the kids will also find an obstacle course where they can work on their cross-country skills.

Hüttschlag Loipe

Cross-country skiing in Hüttschlag

The Hüttschlag Loipe begins just beyond the town center of Hüttschlag. Without any climbs of note, it takes you into the valley to Wolfau (classic technique only). After the sports grounds, you will cross the road and make your way uphill to Karteisdörfl. Now comes a downhill run and a flatter section, before you reach the trails around the Aschaustüberl

With practically no climbs along the way, you will ski towards the valley head in Hüttschlag. The trail takes you in a big loop past Stockham Farm – and you continue uphill. A downhill section then brings you towards the mouth of the valley. Return via the same trail.

You will find a number of loops next to the Aschaustüberl, with various options to choose from. Ambitious skiers will use skating technique to tackle a steep climb, skiing back down through a series of switchbacks, while more laid-back skiers will probably prefer the trail directly next to the stream. The kids always love the cross-country obstacle course.
