Cross Country Skiing
Cross-country skiing is a form of skiing where skiers rely on their own locomotion to move across snow-covered terrain, rather than using ski lifts or other forms of assistance.
Cross-country skiing is widely practiced as a sport and recreational activity; however, some still use it as a means of transportation. Variants of cross-country skiing are adapted to a range of terrain which spans unimproved, sometimes mountainous terrain to groomed courses that are specifically designed for the sport.
Cross-country skiing is not only one of the healthiest winter sports out there but is also a fantastic way to glide through the snowy landscape and enjoy the absolute peace and quiet seldom found on ski pistes. Tirol is home to many cross-country skiing areas, from the Arlberg in the west to the Kitzbühel Alps in the east and the Dolomites of East Tirol in the south. Many of these resorts have special offers for beginners and those getting back into the sport after a while away.
