Cross-country skiing

Gliding through a winter wonderland

Damüls boasts two cross-country ski runs for your winter enjoyment away from the slopes. Eleven sunny kilometres of trail are prepared each day, and at altitudes of 1,500 to 1,700 metres above sea level, you can be sure of plenty of snow.

Enjoy a leisurely run on the "Unterdamüls Alm" and "Stofel" cross-country ski trails, both located in Oberdamüls, depending on whether you prefer the classic or skating variants of this healthy endurance sport. Give your car a holiday too: Both trails can be quite easily reached by local bus from Damüls.

The trails are connected by a romantic winter hiking path, which continues further along the trails. Why not combine your cross-country ski excursion with a stroll through a fabulous winter landscape right out of a fairy-tale? And don't miss out on a visit to the Berggasthaus.

Unterdamüls cross-country ski run

The Unterdamüls cross-country ski run is perfect for those who prefer a nice level trail. This six kilometre long route leads to the Unterdamüls Alm and back again.

Stofel cross-country ski run

The "Stofel" cross-country ski run is located in Oberdamüls near the Zimba guesthouse. The circuit is delightfully sunny, and its five kilometre length is prepared for either classic or skating variants. The gently rolling terrain is about 1,700 metres above sea level

As if that isn't enough: In the neighbouring Mellau area, lower down, you can enjoy an even greater variety of charming ski runs. Around 22.5 kilometres of cross-country ski trails are laid out in varying degrees of difficulty. Whether ambitious or pleasure-seeking, all cross-country skiers will find something to suit their taste. Breathe in the crisp winter air as you make your way through the silent winter landscape with magnificent mountain panoramas.
