Cross-country skiing rules at a glance:
Ski on sight.
Be considerate of others.
On the uphill you can avoid more easily than the downhill skier.
Use the trail only with cross-country skis, no alpine skis.
Entering the trail without cross-country skis is not allowed. Please use the winter hiking trails.
Garbage on meadows and paths can not smell mountain and valley. Please take it with you. Agriculture and forestry are important partners for Berg und Tal. They allow you to walk and drive on many of their paths. Be aware that only good cooperation will guarantee your recreational enjoyment in the future.
