The popular sport of Cross Country Skiing is a much loved winter activity in the Lungau. With over 150km of trails stretching through the valley you can get away from the tourist spots into fresh mountain air and valley fields blanketed in deep snow.
In addition to the valley routes, high altitude trails in Schönfeld Thomatal, on the Karneralm, Prebersee, Mariapfarr-Lignitz and the Petersbründlloipe guarantee excellent snow conditions well into the months of Spring.
As well as carefully prepared and maintained cross country trails, enthusiasts can also enjoy around 80km dedicated skating track.
All cross country trails are easily accessible by ski bus or car and some of the local routes can be reached within a few minutes walk.
In order to use the trails you must purchase a pass, called a Trail Pin. The Trail Pin is available to buy at the Tourist Office and can be purchased for a day, 7 days or a for the season. A fourth option, the Cross-Country Combo Pass, provides a 7 day ticket and includes free use of the public transport. The Combo Pass can also be bought directly from the bus driver on all bus lines!
Note that if you have a valid alpine ski pass, use of the ski bus is already free.
