Cross-country skiing means constancy. Cross-country skiing is to finally breathe again. Cross-country skiing is healthy: joint-friendly and strength-building. Cross-country skiing is modern - from pleasure cross-country skiers to top athletes! The fantastic mountain scenery at the foot of the Dachstein serves as your personal gateway to nature
and physical fitness, with the rhythmical motions simultaneously
relaxing and strengthening you.
Hotel Steirerhof lies right next to the turn-around point of the "Steirerloipe" (XC-trail) for classical and skating technique - an ideal location, in other words, from which to explore the extensive trail network of Ramsau am Dachstein.
The Vitalhotel Steirerhof offers you an ideal entry point into the "Steirerloipe" (XC-trail) directly in front of the hotel door - and thus into the extensive trail network of Ramsau am Dachstein:
Cross-country skiing at an elevation of 2,700 m, surrounded by incomparable mountain scenery, is a truly special experience. Up to 18 km of trails, maintained for diagonal and skating technique, await you on Dachstein glacier.
On the trail of world champions: from July until November, as many as 500 athletes from 30 countries get in their workouts on these glacier trails, training for competition in the winter ahead. That said, amateur athletes love the glacier trails as well.
