cross- country reports

A large number of cross-country trails are found around Mauterndorf in particular. The airfield cross-country trail with its 2.6 km of classic tracks and skating tracks is perfect for beginners and those pleasure skiers who want to enjoy the sun. The Taurach cross-country trail from Mauterndorf to Mariapfarr and back covering a distance of 6.5 km, definitely requires more endurance and, depending on your stamina, there are different access points in Mariapfarr.

Certainly more demanding is the Hammer/Twenger/Lantschfeld cross-country trail from Mauterndorf ski centre towards Tweng near Obertauern, with 12 km of tracks in the classic style and about 6 km in the skating style.

A summary of the groomed cross-country trails or cross-country skiing trails and their conditions can be found at the Lungau holiday region website.
