The Olympiaregion Seefeld is the first place every year to be visited by the winter. By December, the landscape is covered in a thick white layer of snow and the region, with its vast network of tracks, is ready to welcome cross-country ski fans and winter hiking enthusiasts. Immaculately groomed, award-winning cross-country ski tracks – ~150 kilometres for classic-style and ~120 kilometres for skating-style skiing – offer perfect conditions. Seven special, quality-assessed tracks covering all levels of difficulty enable wheelchair users and adaptive cross-country skiers to enjoy Nordic sport to the full. The Olympiaregion Seefeld even boasts a dog-friendly track for all those who like to take their four-legged friends on cross-country ski tours. Boasting guaranteed snow until well into April, the Olympiaregion Seefeld is a veritable haven for all lovers of the sport of cross-country skiing.
For fans of alpine skiing, Seefeld Ski Arena offers no fewer than 31 ski-runs and 32 state-of-the-art cable-cars, chairlifts and ski tows ensuring winter fun for skiers and snowboarders. From beginners to experienced skiers to those ‘re-finding their skiing feet’ after a break from the sport, Seefeld Ski Arena offers holidaymakers a second-to-none, sunshine-filled ski holiday in high alpine terrain. The youngest skiers enjoy lots of fun in the superbly designed and equipped children’s ski areas.
And for those who have still not had enough of their favourite sport after the sun has gone down, the region boasts several floodlit pistes and cross-country tracks.
Those guests who prefer to walk rather than ski can enjoy 142 kilometres of cleared winter walking trails to breathtaking panoramic viewpoints with wonderful huts and restaurants in which to enjoy a bite to eat. Guided snowshoe hikes, countless ice rinks, skating ponds and curling lanes and eight natural toboggan runs round off the vast range of winter sport opportunities. Those who enjoy running in winter can, furthermore, make use of 70 kilometres of groomed running routes in the Winter Running & Nordic Walking Arena.
During the winter months, it’s not only hobby sports enthusiasts who flock to the region, but also professional winter sport athletes – Seefeld was, after all, the venue of the Winter Olympics several times over and, following the success of 1985, is set to host the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships for the second time in 2019. Furthermore, owing to its high-altitude location, the Nordic Competence Centre has, for years, served as a meeting point for preparations for the winter sport season for many international professional athletes and teams. It now boasts two brand-new ski jumps and one of the most modern biathlon centres in Europe complete with snow-making facilities for the cross-country ski tracks and a roller-ski circuit enabling training during the summer months too.
