In Austria the options for cross country skiing are endless. Some ‘loipes’ are suited for classic cross country skiers and skaters too. The fairytale-like country scene and the well prepared loipes in different skill levels attracts numerous cross-country skiing lovers to Austria. Most cross country ski areas meet strict criteria and offer 40-60 days of guaranteed snow.
There are also a lot of cross country skiing schools that offer professional training for beginners and advanced skiiers. Some regions such as Ramsau am Dachtstein (with over 220 KM of loipes), the Ausseerland (straight from the loipe into the grimming-therms) or st. Jakob im Walde (in the east of Steiermark) are focused on cross country skiing for women!
