In late March, Galtür plays host to the new cross country ski series of events named Nordic Volumes, combining the popular Nordic Night Race with the new Cross Country Climb and a free XC Camp with tuition and demos of the latest gear.
The second Galtür Nordic Volumes event kicks-off on March 31, 2023, with the popular Nordic Night Race, which is now in its fourth year. The skating sprint through this quaint village at the end of Paznaun Valley is one of the highlights of the ski season. Cheered up by spectators, amateur skate skiers compete against the clock and themselves – and will rub shoulders with pro skiers.
The event continues Saturday, April 01, 2023, with the XC Team Relay and races for upcoming young talents.
The new highlight in this series of events is the Cross Country Climb that will take place on Sunday, April 02, 2023. The competition is open to all and takes Nordic skiers from Galtür across Vermunt toward Bielerhöhe with the loop bringing them back to Galtür. Two different courses are offered: the 12.4-kilometer “Light” course with an elevation gain of 262 meters and the 21.3-kilometer “Hard” course with an elevation gain of 575 meters.
