Cross-country ski experts

Marco Pichlmayer, ÖSV (Austrian Skiing Federation)
Nordic combined athlete

Such a competent range of possibilities as offered in the Ausseerland is of course also much appreciated by pros. Many international cross-country skiing specialists practice on the high plateau of the Tauplitzalm at the beginning of the season every year. The snow-reliable high altitude cross-country ski trail, situated in around 1600 metres, provides not only ideal training conditions but also a stunning view across the surrounding mountains.
