Interactive Cross-Country Trail Card and more
Standardised information signs giving kilometre information, difficulty level, altitude profile, and possible extension trails help you to find your way around. If you want to plan your tours at home, an interactive cross-country panorama map is available at www.seefeld.com and shows the trails with information on all rental opportunities for up-to-date and well-prepared skiers. Visitors receive quality service throughout the towns, not just in the sport shops and retailers: whether beginner or expert, the ski schools in the individual towns provide highly qualified cross-country ski instructors. But you can also enjoy the cross-country runs with the whole family: Very little children are best accommodated in a "Pulka" - a type of cross-country sled that can carry the little ones all wrapped up and cosy. And if you want to ski in the evening, there is the night-run between Seefeld and Mösern: From Monday to Friday, 5 pm to 9 pm, you can enjoy the 3km long floodlit trails. Also in Leutasch it`s possible to run by night, the exact times you get in the information office in Leutasch.
In Seefeld, you can follow the tracks of Olympians and champions: Twice already - in 1964 and 1976 - the region has been the venue for the Nordic competition in the Olympic Games. In 1986, the athletes participating in the Nordic Ski World Championships in Seefeld fought for the precious medals and in February, more than 10,000 enthusiastic spectators are always expected for the the World Cup for the Nordic Combination. Countless national teams appreciate the sport facilities as well as the hospitality for their training.
So that cross-country skiers can enjoy their favourite sport with their four-legged friends, a cross-country trails was created for dogs last year. Skaters and classical cross-country skiers can take their dogs on the 1.5km long Lehner trail in Leutasch - to keep it clean, there are dog toilets and bins available.
