Mario Seidl
ÖSV Nordic combination athlete

Trained athletes will find the World Championship circuit at the Ritzensee lake interesting; a very demanding trail across constantly changing terrain. The skating trail takes you partially through woodland, and is one of my favourite training routes, and thanks to the artificial snowmaking facilities, it is open until the spring. The trail is lit until 10 PM, giving you the chance of doing some great training in the evenings too.
