The Cross-Country Area
More than 90 km of cross-country trails await you in the cross-country skiing centre Westfeld/Ohlenbach. The cross-country skiing area thus offers a large selection of cross-country ski runs at all levels of difficulty. Apart from the two competition tracks in the snowpark, all cross-country ski runs are prepared for the classic style, but around half of the tours are also designed for skating.
The 18 cross-country ski runs are interconnected by numerous connecting cross-country ski runs, so that all routes are connected to each other. In addition, there are connections to the cross-country ski runs of Altastenberg, Neuastenberg/Lenneplätze and Winterberg, which also belong to the Nordic Sports Arena Sauerland.
In the cross-country skiing centre in Westfeld, classic cross-country skiers will find an easy and a medium-difficult stadium round, while for sporty skiers there is a medium and a difficult skating competition course. If there is a shortage of snow, the seven kilometres of trails can be covered with artificial snow. There is also the possibility of floodlit cross-country skiing on Wednesdays and Fridays from 18:00 to 20:00.
The Nordicsport-Arena Sauerland cross-country ski pass is not valid for the cross-country ski runs in the cross-country stadium. But with a season ticket you get a discount on the day ticket. The ski school offers courses in classical and skating techniques for beginners and advanced skiers. If you don't have your own cross-country skiing equipment, you can borrow everything you need on the spot.
