Tyrolean Cross-Country Skiing Seal of Approval
For two decades, the Tyrolean provincial government has been awarding the Tyrolean Cross-Country Skiing Quality Seal to the operators of cross-country skiing trails who apply for it under certain conditions.
The Tannheimer Tal is a "cross-country skiing paradise". This is not only the opinion of the ADAC Ski Guide 2008, which nominated the region as one of the top 10 ski areas in the Nordic/cross-country category. The province of Tyrol also gave the region a special award: the "Loipengütesiegel des Landes Tirol". This is valid for three years and criteria such as number of trails, preparation, orientation or marking are regularly checked.
The Tannheimer Tal has optimal cross-country skiing conditions with a 140 kilometer long network of trails and the difference in altitude of a maximum of 50 meters. The trails are suitable for both classic style and skating and offer cross-country skiers of all skill levels the appropriate challenges.
Start of the circular trail is at the parking lot below the tourist info/community office in Grän. The route leads northwest over beautiful wide ways and pulls below the bridge on the right, over which the trail continues to Tannheim, a loop down to the sawmill. Along the "Berger Ache", after about 300 meters it goes right through an underpass, after about 35 meters of altitude difference we reach the highest point of the tour. Once here, we descend to the Haldensee lake. At Haldensee, the trail first heads west towards the main road, after crossing this, the trail runs via the "Moos" back to the starting point, whereby the trail to the parking lot is interrupted by the Gräner Landesstraße.
Follow the FIS rules of conduct for cross-country skiers!
A safe control of the sports equipment even in poor snow conditions and good condition are basic requirements for cross-country skiing.The choice of the right speed - adapted to the skiing ability and the 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 ski trail map of the Tannheimer Tal makes it easier for you to plan your tour, shows the distances and makes it easier to estimate the running time.
Up-to-date and well-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) and sufficient liquid should not be forgotten.
