Closed
Difficult trail, skating, 2.5 km in length at 1,110 to 1,150 m above sea level. The World Cup trail, which also makes the professionals in the Nordic World Cup really sweat, offers sporty, challenging climbs and descents.

Since the Nordic Ski World Cup in 1999, Ramsau am Dachstein has become a regular feature on the FIS World Cup Calendar - Nordic Combined. Over 65 athletes will compete here to gain the sought after world cup points. 

In December, the world's top nordic sports athletes will compete on Ramsau am Dachstein's ski jumping hill and cross-country trails. There will be 2 Gundersen Competitions happening. These will each feature a ski jump from the HS 98 ski jumping hill and a 10 km cross-country run.

More information

From the west: 

Take the A10 to Knoten Ennstal - take the exit towards Graz/Schladming. Drive along the Ennstal-Bundesstraße for approx. 20 km until you reach Schladming. Take the turn-off for Ramsau. Continue to the village of Ramsau where the XC-stadium is located.

From the East/North:

Take the Pyhrnautobahn direction Liezen. Then follow the Ennstalbundesstraße to Schladming. Take the turn-off for Ramsau. Continue to the village of Ramsau where the XC-stadium is located.

From the stadium it goes out and left up the first ascent and past the Waldschenke towards the jump stadium. After a sharp bend further uphill you will reach the highest point of the trail. Now there is a rapid descent and there is a short loop out towards the west. From the turning point back towards the stadium, you make another 180 ° turn halfway there and walk below the descent over to the reservoir. A short loop along the bank and over the last crisp climb and the cross-country ski run back to the stadium. That was 2.5 km - 40 vertical meters - best time!
