Cross-country skiing in Pongau on the sun terrace
The best endurance training for winter.
Did you know that cross-country skiing is one of the healthiest winter sports ever? In just one hour you burn about 500-700 kcal, which is more than any other sport. By straining almost all muscle regions, you train your neck and back, arms and legs together. You also free your head from everyday stress. Cross-country skiing in Pongau gets the cycle going and also offers great views – and we have perhaps the most beautiful network of trails in the whole of Salzburger Land!
