Cross-Country Skiing & Biathlon – Along The Greatest Ski Runs Of East Tyrol
Obertilliach is the Mecca for cross-country skiing and biathlon in East Tyrol featuring many wonderful cross-country ski runs. Therefore it is the ideal training ground for the world’s best Nordic teams.
With the last falling leaves the winter season begins in Obertilliach. At the Biathlon and Cross-country Skiing Centre the season starts already at November. On the 4 to 5 km long snowable ski-runs you may encounter stars from the Nordic ski sport and those who would like to be one someday. As long there is only artificial snow, this cross-country ski fun in early winter costs € 3 per day. And when the first snowflakes appear from the sky, this area at 1450 m above sea level turns into a marvelous winter wonderland. On “Grenzlandloipe” (total length 60 km – with several reversing possibilities) meet adults and children, the young and the young at heart, the talented and the dedicated… thanks to guaranteed snow until late spring.
Also the worldwide known popular cross-country ski race „Dolomitenlauf“ takes place in Obertilliach every year and welcomes about 3000 participants coming from all over the world.
