My favourite trail has to be the Gletscherloipe on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, the meeting point for all Nordic skiing fans. Here you will find extraordinary conditions, and I for one like to make the most of the many advantages of high-altitude training starting in autumn, and train on the glacier plateau at 2900 m above sea level on the 3 km prepared high-altitude trail.
