Cross-country Skiing

Try cross-country skiing by the Pitztal Glacier

Cross-country skiing is a popular winter sport known for its health benefits. While some sports place strain on the body's joints, cross-country skiing is known as a gentle option which trains all the muscle groups and is great to improve overall fitness. The trails in the Pitztal Valley are between 1,600 and 2,760 metres above sea level – the ideal altitude for training – and offer spectacular views of the Ötztal Alps. Use your next holiday at the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten to try out this beautiful sport.
