Cross-Country Skiing

Here in the Lungau, some 150 km of cross-country ski trails lead you through fairy-tale forests, across snow-covered meadows and fields, and alongside idyllic streams. 50 kilometers of tracked trails can be found in Mariapfarr alone.

For more athletically inclined skiers, there are around 100 km of trails tracked for skating technique. You can also look forward to a range of elevations – trails on the Katschberg, at the Prebersee, in Schönfeld and on the Gnadenalm take you up to more than 2,000 meters above sea level.

Trail access points are within easy reach by bus.

Rich in variety, the Lungau’s ski trails have been officially recognized as “Austria’s Biggest Contiguous Trail Network” and deemed to offer “Absolute Snow Reliability”.

All tours are clearly marked and provide information about length, difficulty and direction.
Around 2 km from our house is the start of the Panorama Trail in Örmoos/Mariapfarr, though as a guest of our house, you can actually access this trail right in front of our hotel.

Courses for beginners and experienced skiers are offered at Alberts Skischule.
