Cross-Country Skiing in the Seefeld Olympic Region

From a topographical point of view, the region around Seefeld, Leutasch, Mösern-Buchen, Reith and Scharnitz is perfect for cross-country skiing.

The sunny Seefeld plateau lies between the Karwendel Mountains, the Wetterstein Mountains and the Inn Valley at around 1,200 metres above sea level. It is home to a huge 246-kilometre network of cross-country skiing trails catering for all abilities. Skiers can choose between day tickets, multi-day tickets and season tickets. It is no coincidence that Seefeld has hosted the Nordic disciplines of Olympic Games on three separate occasions – the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics as well as the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games. In 2019 Seefeld will host the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships for the second time in its history after already welcoming the world's best Nordic athletes back in 1985. Every year (except in 2019 due to the World Championships) it also serves as one of the key stops on the FIS Nordic Combined World Cup as part of the Nordic Combined Triple in Seefeld. Further highlights for experienced cross-country skiers in the area are the Leutasch Nordic Ski Opening in mid-December, the Kaiser-Maximilian-Lauf race in early January and the Ganghoferlauf race in in Leutasch at the start of March.

Seefeld is regularly voted one of the world's best cross-country skiing regions in the world. National and international teams come to the centre of excellence with its biathlon facilities to train. Amateurs are also welcome to have a go at this fun sport combining cross-country skiing and precision shooting with beginners' courses offered several times a week between December and March at the Cross Country Academy run by Martin Tauber.
