Cross-country skiingin Obertauern, the winter sports paradise in Salzburg province

A successful mixture of relaxation and recuperation is increasingly important for people in their leisure time. As a result, cross-country skiing is experiencing a renaissance – whether classic or the sportier skating cross-country technique. Cross-country skiing is a very complex type of sport and it gently trains a large proportion of the muscles of the body.

The healthy exercise strengthens body and mind and is the perfect combination of sport and fun.
