In the neighbouring villages around Viehhofen, you will find countless cross-country ski trails to suit every ability. The regions of Zell am See-Kaprun as well as Saalfelden Leogang have built-up an impressive cross-country network with circular trails, for the most avid cross-country enthusiasts, some trails are even illuminated at night. A special recommendation for children is the Fun & Snowpark at the ‘Langlaufzentrum Ritzensee’ in Saalfelden: Here children can learn the technique of cross-country skiing thorough the art of play, by overcoming various obstacles while at the same time having lots of fun.
There are also many cross-country trails in the nearby villages of Maishofen and Saalbach Hinterglemm. We recommend that newcomers to cross-country skiing learn from a professional instructor. There are cross-country ski school courses on offer in Zell am See, Kaprun and Saalfelden.
