Cross Country Skiing - A short stroll or challenging ascent
St Anton am Arlberg is now considered one of the destinations for cross-country skiers. Tyrol awarded the 40km long network of trails the quality seal for cross-country skiing.
Essential criteria for the award were the high guarantee of snow, good designation of routes, the number and length of cross-country trails with differing levels of difficulty and the parking possibilities even for day-trippers. The approx 40km long cross-country network offers many comfortable but also more athletically challenging types of route, thus satisfying a variety of levels.
