Winter holidays: the cross-country skiing on the Rodenecker-Lüsner Alp
Here’s a foretaste
There are many reasons to love cross-country skiing. For starters, it’s a gentle, health-promoting form of exercise. It gives a good workout to 90% of the body muscles, strengthening legs, buttocks and arms as well the heart. And when the trails are as panoramic as the one on the Rodenecker-Lüsner Alp, this sport is as good for the soul as it is for the body.
The cross-country ski trail in detail
The 15-kilometre cross-country ski trail on the Rodenecker-Lüsner Alp starts at the Zumis car park and leads past the Roner Alp hut and the Pianer Kreuz chapel to the Starkenfeldhütte hut – with both huts also open to the public in winter. The trail is suitable for both classic and skate skiing and is technically unchallenging, winding in gentle ups and downs (approx. 300 metres elevation gain) across the alpine meadows.
As you slide across the alp, you can soak up the dreamy view of shimmering white expanses embraced by mighty peaks and dotted with quaint mountain villages.
How to get there
