Cross-country skiing

Very well-tended slopes & plenty of variety

It is a wonderful day. The snow is glistening and the sun is shining on your face as you practice your turns out on the slopes.

Where in the summer hikers and cyclists are out and about, in the winter, cross-country skiers glide through the snow-covered winter landscapes.

The region has very well-tended cross-country slopes, linked to some 200 km Pinzgau trail and the Fischhorn trail (4.4 km).

Snap on your cross-country skis after dusk and enjoy skiing in a romantic atmosphere, as you gaze in wonder at the clear starry skies.


With the starting point at the municipality of Fusch, the trail leads you to the Ponyhof and back.
In total you can look forward to 5km of cross-country skiing pleasure.

The altitude slopes in Mittersill - Pass Thurn and Hochfilzen provide a bit of variety and are particularly snow-assured. Mittersill's upland moor slope is located at 1250 m altitude, is 22 km in length and provides dreamy views to Hohe Tauern National Park.

Winter hiking & Snow-shoe hiking

Enjoy the superb winter landscape in Bruck & Fusch on foot

Experience the impressive winter landscapes and enjoy the rays of Alpine sunshine on your skin. We guarantee unforgettable moments during snow-shoe hikes in the snow-covered woodlands in our region. In Bruck and Fusch we offer you over 25 km of cleared, well-tended winter hiking trails with links to Zell am See and Kaprun.

Wander through magical winter landscapes and head up to the idyllically located Alpine lodges and summit views. These provide you with insights into a dreamy winter realm and also re-harmonise your entire body.


Head  through the deep snow with minimal effort wearing a pair of snow shoes and you will quickly appreciate the greatest benefit of all – snow shoes help you become immersed in natural surroundings, in which wearing normal shoes you would just sink into the deep snow.


The winter hiking paths on the nearby Schmittenhöhe proceed up to some 2000 metres, along the mountain ridge and provide superb views to the snow-covered summits of the Hohe Tauern

and the Limestone Alps.


Information about winter and snow-shoe hikes on the mountain is available in our weekly programme and direct at Schmittenhöhebahn Zell am See.
