Following the trails or cutting your own tracks
In the broad area between the Niedere Tauern to the north and the Nockberge to the south, in an area that straddles the border between three Austrian provinces, Salzburg-Styria-Carinthia, numerous touring options are available to you, for everyone from ski-touring rookies to experienced alpinists. The Lungau ski-touring guidebook provides useful information and tips about the region’s most beautiful ski tours.
One of the most stellar cross-country routes of all is undoubtedly the snowy alpine trail next to the Prebersee. You will likewise find great trails at the Lignitztal Cross-Country Center, which also offers a floodlit tour as well as the opportunity to try your hand at laser biathlon. Even at valley elevations, in good snow conditions the trails are nicely maintained, inviting you to explore the Mur- and Taurachtal valleys on skis.
