Only the best is good enough for Styria's guests. That's why the satisfaction of the guests of the most beautiful cross-country skiing areas in Styria is an absolute matter of the heart. It is a mission that the regions are very happy to fulfil.

The Top 3 Cross-Country-skiing regions

With Ramsau am Dachstein, Bad Mitterndorf and the Jogllandloipe, Styria is also home to three of Austria's absolute top cross-country skiing regions. Especially with the Nordic Centre Ramsau am Dachstein - host of the Nordic World Ski Championships 1999 and the annual FIS World Cup event in Nordic Combined - Styria shows the highest competence.

The most beautiful cross-country skiing areas in Styria

Joglland trail in St. Jakob im Walde in East Styria is just as well known among cross-country skiers as the cross-country skiing area of Eisenerzer Ramsau with its Nordic Performance Centre. Bad Mitterndorf offers two worthwhile destinations with a network of cross-country trails via Pichl to Kainisch and several trails on Tauplitzalm. With the cross-country trails in Bad Aussee and Altaussee at the foot of the Loser, the Ausseerland-Salzkammergut is one of Austria's top cross-country skiing regions.

Ramsau am Dachstein is an internationally renowned cross-country skiing area and a venue of the annual FIS Nordic Combined World Cup.

Cross-country skiers also feel right at home on Krumpen trail in Trofaiach, at Grüner See (Green Lake) in Tragöß, in Hall bei Admont in the Gesäuse region and in Wald am Schoberpass. Another special tip is the Murau region with its Weirerteich cross-country ski trail and the Prebersee trail in the Styrian Krakau. The Almenland Nature Park and the trail network in the Hohentauern region complete the diverse offers for pure cross-country skiing enjoyment.
