Kristallloipe classic XC trail

Closed
The cross-country trails in Untertal are a true delight and an insider tip amongst the XC community.

Wonderfully grommed classic cross-country trail along the Untertal valley, flanked by the impressive mountains of the Schladming Tauern range. Especially in the morning you get a taste from where the tracks got their name.

The track starts at Hinkerbrücke bridge where informattion displays for the XC tracks are located. From there the run takes you into Untertal valley and back to your starting point along 13.5 kms. There are also alternative starting points:

  • Starting point "Tettermoor" (at the wooden lookout tower "Wild Waters")
  • Starting point "Waldhäuslalm" inn
  • Starting point "Weisse Wand" inn

There are no set prices for use of the XC trails in Untertal valley! You can decide for yourself how much the trails are worth to you. There are small boxes at the trail heads for your voluntary contibution. Since grooming of the trails is largely dependent on the quality and amount of snow, conditions are not always the same. But of course, our hard-working crews always try their very best.
