Tyrolean cross-country ski trail seal of approval
For two decades now, the Tyrolean provincial government has been awarding the Tyrolean cross-country ski trail seal of approval under certain conditions to those who apply for it.
The Tannheimer Tal is a "cross-country skiing paradise". Not only the ADAC Ski Guide 2008 finds this and nominated the region as one of the top 10 skiing areas in the category Nordic/Cross-country skiing. There was also a special award from the Federal State of Tyrol: the "Cross-country Seal of Quality of the Federal State of Tyrol". This is valid for three years and criteria such as number of tracks, preparation, orientation or marking are regularly checked.
The Tannheimer Tal has optimal cross-country skiing conditions with a 140-kilometre-long cross-country trail network and a maximum difference in altitude of 50 metres. The trails are suitable for classic style as well as for skating and offer cross-country skiers of all skill levels the appropriate challenges.
We start below the Lourdes Grotto and follow the trail westwards. After a rapid descent we reach the meadows in front of Zöblen, which we cross. Along the Vils with a wonderful panoramic view of the Wannenjoch and the surrounding mountain world we head for the neighbouring Allgäu. Passing Unterjoch, there is a longer ascent over meadows and through forests to Oberjoch. After a sweeping descent towards Unterjoch we walk back to Schattwald on wide meadows. After crossing the road in Schattwald, the varied cross-country trail at the shooting range leads through the snow-covered forests of Zöblen and Schattwald. Returning to Tannheim the cross-country trail leads along the edge of the forest of the Vils. After a short ascent and a relaxing descent we are back at the starting point.
Observe the FIS rules of conduct for cross-country skiers!
A secure control of the sports equipment even in bad snow conditions and good physical condition are basic requirements for cross-country skiing.Choosing the right speed - adapted to the skier's ability and degree of fatigue - greatly reduces the risk of accidents and injuries.
Stay on the route: All the tours described here are on groomed trails. So do not deviate from the route.
The cross-country skiing trail map of the Tannheimer Tal makes it easier for you to plan your tours, shows the distances and makes it easier to estimate the running points.
An up-to-date and well-kept/maintained equipment (skis, bindings, boots, poles and clothing) not only provides a considerable degree of safety but also makes cross-country skiing much easier. Sun protection (high protection factor and possibly sunglasses) as well as sufficient liquid should not be forgotten.
