The Cross-Country Area

On the beautiful Hochreit plateau in Göstling an der Ybbs, a cross-country skiing centre awaits you in a prime location with six round trails. A total of 29 classic cross-country trail kilometres and 10 kilometres for the skating style are available here. The rounds belong mainly to the medium category.

The start and finish of the cross-country skiing centre is the farm "Ablaß". Here you will not only find a snack station where you can fortify yourself with must and a hearty bacon snack, but also a ski rental, a changing room and a practice trail. Children can let off steam on the winter playground. The 2 km long house track leads around the farm and is illuminated daily from 18 to 20 o'clock. For floodlit cross-country skiing, however, advance registration is required.
