In early April 2020, 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 first Galtür Nordic Volumes event kicks-off on April 02, 2020 with the popular Nordic Night Race, which is now in its third 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 is drawn to a close with an Aprés-XC-Ski-Party at Hotel Ballunspitze’s “Biwak 66”.
The event continues Friday, April 03, 2020 with a free XC Camp, where skiers learn technical skills and have fun out on the trails with the Nordic ski pros of Galtür Ski School. Moreover, there will be demos of the latest gear and equipment. The full-day camp starts at 09:00am.
The new highlight in this series of events is the Cross Country Climb that will debut on Saturday, April 04, 2020 at 08:00am. The competiton is open to all and takes Nordic skiers from Galtür across Vermunt toward Bielerhöhe with the lopp 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.
