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 at the car park in the Tannheim district of Berg and follow the easterly track across the flat meadows towards Grän. At the municipal office in Grän you will find our turning point as well as another parking place. From here we follow the cross-country ski run in western direction back to Tannheim.
After dusk this round track can be used with a headlamp until 22:00 o'clock.
Observe the FIS rules of conduct for cross-country skiers!
The basic prerequisites for cross-country skiing are a good command of the equipment even in poorer snow conditions and good physical condition. Choosing the right speed - adapted to the skier's ability and degree of fatigue - reduces the risk of accidents and injuries enormously.
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 time.
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.
