Venosta Nordic: Cross-Country Skiing and Biathlon in Venosta Valley in South Tyrol
118 km of cross-country skiing trails for Nordic winter sports at all levels
Venosta Nordic is a new cross-country skiing trail network around the Ortler Mountain and Passo Resia in South Tyrol, Austria and Switzerland.
In the Venosta Valley, in Nauders (Austria) and in Val Müstair (Switzerland), there are no fewer than 7 cross-country skiing areas, with 12 ski trails to choose from.
The different kinds of trails – 118 km including forest circuits, panoramic trails and high-altitude trails – offer skiing at various difficulty levels: from classic cross-country skiing to skating, for both beginners and seasoned trail experts.
The seven Venosta Nordic sports areas offer an extended skiing season as well as guaranteed snow conditions. This is true for Solda/Sulden (1,900 m above sea level), as well as the Nordic ski centres of Slingia/Schlinig and Martello/Martell, extending as far as the Resia and S. Valentino Lakes, and across the border with Austria to Nauders and in Val Müstair in Switzerland.
The Venosta Nordic seven areas also host international sporting events such as the long distance cross country run La Venosta or the Biathlon IBU Cup, while The Tour de Ski is staged in Val Müstair, in neighbouring Switzerland.
These are the seven ski areas of Venosta Nordic: Nauders (A), Resia/Reschen, Vallelunga/Langtaufers, Slingia/Schlinig, Solda/Sulden, Val Martello/Martelltal and Val Müstair (CH)
Despite the diversity of the Venosta Nordic cross-country skiing areas, they all share one thing in common: the idyllic solitude of the forests. Despite the sizeable numbers of visitors attracted to this destination, it still allows individuals to practice their preferred Nordic winter sport in the tranquillity of these pristine mountains.
