Cross country skiing
Being in a fairy tale
Cross-country in front of a gorgeous coulisse of imposing mountainscape of Tennengau is a special pleasure. Lammertal counts to the leading centres of cross-country in Austria. Next to Ramsau and Seefeld Lammertal is the third top-nordic-region in Austria.
Cross-country is tradition in Abtenau. (description of the individual cross-country ski runs) Who loves the untouched nature, perfect primed cross-country ski runs and the calmness, is totally right here. And because Lammertal is a hole with snow it is still snowy, when a few kilometeres away everything becomes green or is still green.
Lammertal in Salzburg Land is a jewel for ski-hikers – through the whole valley a wide net of well-kept cross-country ski runs and skating-traces are available.
Around 150 kilometers traced cross-country ski runs wait in the three villages of Lammertal (Abtenau, Annaberg-Lungötz and St. Martin) and further 100 km at Postalm and in the neighbour villages Golling and Russbach/Gosau to be recced by you.
At the followers of cross-country Abtenau and Lammertal is known as eldorado. Mainly the quality of the cross-country ski runs and the scenic variety impresses the cross-country skiers.
Next to the 60 km long net of cross-country ski runs in Abtenau (Auloipe I and II, Eglsee- Fischbach- Panoramaloipe) the Nordic Center submontane of Karkogel offers a special built 3 km long and snowy cross-country ski run with two classic traces and one skating trace.
The floodlighted cross-country ski run (1km) will be lighted beginning 21:00 daily. The Seethalloipe (racing cross-country ski run) continues the following 2 km – here skilled cross-country skiers get at one’s own expense.
Also infrastructure is around cross-country like showers/WC, changing rooms, ski-rent, ski testing possibilities and preparation rooms.
