Dogs are very special nature lovers and enjoy running in the snow. Owners know this all too well. It doesn't matter if the animals leave some paw prints on the trails. It goes without saying, however, that other legacies must be conscientiously removed and disposed of.
One of the golden rules no. 1 of cross-country skiing is consideration. This principle also applies to dog cross-country skiing. Whether with a poodle on a leash or with a husky in the harness, the cross-country trail offers space for everyone.
The dog trail is suitable for skaters and classic runners.
Use only marked trails and follow all markings and signs - for your own safety, for the protection of the landscape and in respect of wildlife.
Be considerate towards other cross-country skiers. Every cross-country skier, especially on downhill runs, must adapt speed and behaviour to his ability and visibility. In classic running tracks and on the piste for free running technique, you run on the right side of the piste with an appropriate safety distance to the front runner. If you stop, you step out of the cross-country ski run. Assistance in case of accidents is a matter of course. To alert the rescue service, dial No. 144.
Weather conditions in the mountains can change very quickly and without warning. Appropriate clothing is very important.
