Ötztal Valley lures passionate cross country skiers to the Nordic Ski Testival in the winter of 2019-2020: 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 10:00am onwards. A crowd pleaser for little ones is the Children’s Snow Fest, complete with snowcat rides and snowball fights. The Niederthai Nordic Center will pack all its power into these day events, which are held on December 26, 2019, January 26 and February 27, 2020. 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.
