This winter, Ötztal Valley lures passionate cross country skiers to Niederthai for the Nordic Ski Testival. On three dates there will be free equipment demos, technique tuition and biathlon clinics for all ages.
The beautiful scenery on the sunny upland plateau of Niederthai, located at an elevation of 1,540 meters, provides wonderful opportunities for cross country skiers and biathletes. The Nordic Ski Testival includes Be a Biathlete programs where adults and kids get a primer on gun safety and then line up against the same targets the world’s best biathletes face. Demos of the latest gear and equipment, ski waxing and tuning and Nordic skiing technique tuition are available for free from 9:00am onwards. The Niederthai Nordic Center will pack all its power into these day events, which are held on December 27, 2018, February 10 and March 7, 2019. The Testival is sure to create a positive, long-lasting memorable experience for Nordic skiers, from beginners to experts of all ages—and especially for families.
