Cross-County Skiing at
the Highest Level
Anyone who has ever taken to the trail via the rhythmic movement of cross-country skiing knows how well this "gentle sport" helps your body, mind and soul. It is considered one of the healthiest forms of exercise and it definitely increases your fitness level!
Exercise at over 1,000 m above sea level forces the body to use more oxygen and acts as a fountain of youth. Your cardiovascular system will thank you for every kilometre of trail, and your soul will be revitalised for the winter period after your holiday.
