Your cross-country skiing expedition starts at the sports ground (cross country skiing stadium) in the village. The trail will take you along the edge of the village to the beautiful Tiefbrunnauer Valley. The cross-country skiing runs are located in sunny areas and do not boast major differences in altitude.
