On the cross-country ski trail with Cross Country Ski Holidays

The cross-country ski regions of Cross Country Ski Holidays meet strict criteria and minimum standards. They provide a cross-country ski track network of at least 30 km, which must be perfectly groomed at all times for skating as well as for classic cross-country skiing. Parts of the cross-country ski tracks are covered with artificial snow or there is a high-altitude cross-country ski track (more than 1000 m above sea level) as an alternative in the region.

The signposts with information about directions and kilometres as well as overview maps help cross-country skiers to orientate just like the free of charge cross-country ski track maps and digital images of the cross-country ski tracks on the web. The professional cross-country ski schools, hire stations and service points provide cross-country skiers with top advice on their winter holiday.

Cross-country ski trails in Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy

Today’s cross-country skiers expect much higher standards when it comes to equipment and infrastructure on their winter holiday. What counts are perfectly groomed cross-country ski tracks, an extensive guidance and information system as well as an all-round perfect infrastructure (like parking spaces, possibilities for a stop, ski service facilities, sanitary and shower facilities).

A very important point on a cross-country ski holiday is the proximity to the cross-country ski track. The cross-country ski hotels of Cross Country Ski Holidays are no more than 300 metres walking distance away from the access to the cross-country ski tracks or they offer a shuttle service to the cross-country ski track. The cross-country ski experts at the hotels have detailed knowledge about the network of cross-country ski tracks and are always there to provide information and tips.
