Everything is available: ranging from skating to classic-style trails
The huge trail network covers a total length of 143 kilometers in Ötztal. Of course there are myriad tracks for all ages and preferences: Nordic skiing routes in the wide open basin of Längenfeld and Umhausen, high-altitude trails in Gries and Niederthai, even cross-country ski trails in the skiing hot spots of Sölden and Obergurgl-Hochgurgl.
From the valley bottom up to the peaks
Already the entrance to Ötztal offers comfortable tracks in top conditions: The easy cross-country loop trail in Ochsengarten leads along snow-covered, meter-high spruce forests and glades towards Kühtai. Continuing into the valley, Umhausen-Niederthai is considered a real mecca for cross-country skiers in Ötztal. 12 loops at varied difficulty levels with splendid landscape backdrop justify this status.
Ötztal cross-country skiing center for free
Nordic sports already compete with Alpine skiing - for several reasons: no crowds or waiting times but heaps of nature and individuality. It's not a coincidence that Ötztal offers countless cross-country skiing trails spread all over the valley's holiday resorts. The Nordic routes can be found at all altitudes and different difficulty levels. And what's best: you can use them for free!
