Classic cross-country skiing for beginners
The whole body workout that is fun
Relaxation at the highest level is guaranteed despite the exertion of cross-country skiing. 12 kilometers of cross-country trails lead through the snow-covered landscape in Obergurgl, on which you can really work out. Cross-country skiing is a sport that trains the whole body through movements. So that you can run properly right from the start, it is best to register for a beginner's cross-country skiing course at the Obergurgl ski school.
Every muscle is trained in cross-country skiing and, above all, the stamina is continuously increased. This sport, which has its origins in Scandinavia, is also very popular in Austria. No wonder, since the Ötztal also offers the best conditions for this.

Once you've gotten to grips with the sequences of movements in cross-country skiing, this sport is a lot of fun. So that you don't have to struggle with the technology alone for a long time, take advantage of the opportunity and attend a cross-country skiing course at the Obergurgl ski school. Together with our winter sports instructors, you will learn the basics quickly and effectively and you will be able to run your first laps after just a few moments.
Snowshoes - Dive deep into the fascinating winter world
Even in the Stone Age, hunters and gatherers noticed that effortless progress in the deep snow of wintry times was only possible with snowshoes. Since the mid-1990s, this movement has become a new trend sport and an alternative to classic ski tours.
Walking through the deep snow with snowshoes and looking at the winter world with different eyes is a special nature experience for young and old. If you can walk, you can also go snowshoeing. We offer the snowshoe hike every Wednesday afternoon. The minimum number of participants is 4, we ask you to register by 5 p.m. the day before.
