Cross-country skiing and biathlon in Obertilliach
Enjoying the snowy landscape and breathing in the fresh mountain air – that's what makes cross-country skiing such an amazing experience.
The Hochpustervalley is a cross-country region that needs to be talked about in superlatives.
The Hotel Weiler is located directly above the cross-country ski trail Obertilliach.
Obertilliach provides an excellent infrastructure for cross-country and biathlon enthusiasts. The “Grenzland” trail offers about 60 km of cross-country skiing fun with sections of various levels of difficulty across sunny meadows and through magical forests. It is ranked among the most varied and most beautiful trails in Tyrol. Due to modern artificial snowing systems, snowy trails can be guaranteed during the whole season. Starting in the west (Hollbruck), the panoramic trail runs up to its highest point on the Kartitsch Saddle (1.525 m), from where it descends across meadows and snowy forests, past the Schön- and Leitnervalley, to Obertilliach. From here it heads towards Untertilliach and finally reaches Maria Luggau.
Every year the largest cross-country skiing event in Austria, the famous Dolomites run, takes place right in front of the hotel's door.
NEW: Since winter 2015/16 a high-altitude cross-country trail awaits you in the Golzentipp skiing area. It starts just a few metres from the upper cable railway station. Due to its altitude it's perfectly suitable for pre-seasonal preparatory training for cross-country skiers and biathletes.
With the “Loipen Card” it's possible to use the ski bus free of charge.
