Cross-Country Skiing on the Seefeld Plateau
Cross-country skiing in Seefeld - or "Langlauf" as it is known in German - is just as important as downhill skiing in the winter months.
Hundreds of kilometres of prepared tracks span the villages of the plateau, each carefully prepared by special machinery and experts.
There are descriptions of where the trails go, how long they are and what style of cross-country skiing on the following pages:
The Seefeld plateau has twice hosted the Nordic events of the Winter Olympics and it is still as proud of its facilities for Nordic skiing. It is opening a new Nordic Centre which includes facilities for biathlon training and for summer cross-country training using roller-skis.
The Olympiaregion Seefeld has a well-marked trail network with a mixture of classic and skating routes. It should be noted that trails are only free for those guests staying on the Seefeld plateau or in the Tirol Mitte tourist office region (Mösern and Telfs) with a valid guest card. Others - including local residents - pay for the privilege of using them! A daily visitors' pass costs €6.
Seefeld cross-country trails
Seefeld has its own cross-country ski school and trails lead off to Mösern from outside the ski school offices near the Olympia Sports Centre.
Other popular routes in Seefeld are the easy trails near the Wildsee and the more difficult climbs up to the Wildmoos area.

Leutasch - a cross-country skiing eldorado
Leutasch is the heart of the cross-country skiing on the plateau. The hamlets of Leutasch are linked by an intricate network of trails.
Try the loop into the Gaistal for spectacular alpine winter views or in the other direction towards Mittenwald for some gorgeous village scenery in an unspoilt valley.
