  • Drive on sight
  • Be considerate of others

  • Only use the trail with cross-country skis, no alpine skis

Destination

Cross-Country Stadium Ramsau Ort

Turn-by-turn directions

From the stadium it goes out and left up the first ascent and past the Waldschenke towards the jump stadium. After a sharp bend further uphill you will reach the highest point of the trail. Now there is a rapid descent and there is a short loop out towards the west. From the turning point back towards the stadium, you make another 180 ° turn halfway there and walk below the descent over to the reservoir. A short loop along the bank and over the last crisp climb and the cross-country ski run back to the stadium. That was 2.5 km - 40 vertical meters - best time!
