Cross-country skiing

An extensive 26-kilometre network of cross-country ski trails stretches between Obertauern, the Gnadenalm and Tweng. Five long trails lead you through the most beautiful natural sites in the fairy-tale winter landscape.

  • The Hundsfeld trail: a sunny 6 km trail leads from the Obertauern Sports Centre through the protected area around the Hundsfeldmoor.
  • The Twenger Au trail: the 23 kilometres to Tweng and Mauterndorf are demanding in terms of fitness and worth every metre…
  • The Gnadenalm trail: a 13 km long high trail with fantastic panoramic views at 1,350 m above sea level. Skating & classic. The Gnadenalm even has a biathlon shooting range!
  • The World Cup trail: 10 km, medium difficulty. The trail begins at the Gamsleiten chairlift valley station.

The Taurach trail: 13 delightful kilometres connect Untertauern and Radstadt.
