"Almenrunde" XC trail is a skating run and situated between the hunting lodge and the Angereralm cabin. The starting point is at Sulzbergbrücke bridge near Weisse Wand inn.
The skating slopes in Untertal are among the easy cross country skating runs in the Schladming-Dachstein region. The "Almenrunde" skating track owes its name to the numerous alps ("Almen" in german) located along the Untertal valley floor. Almenrunde is perfect for beginners in the skating technique because most of the track runs along very flat terrain with almonst no grades. Only the loop passing by "Angereralm" is a section of moderate difficulty due to a short steep ascent followed by a short and curvy downhill section. Weisse Wand inn (at the starting point) and Sondlalm are two options for a refreshment stop along the "Almenrunde" run.
The route is especially charming due to the beauty of the scenery in the Untertal valley. While you are running along the track you pass by meandering Untertalbach creek and trees and bushes often covered with beautiful ice crystals. Almenrunde skating run is the perfect match for sportive nature lovers.
Heading out of the valley on 1.2 kms of classic XC track "Kristallloipe" takes you to Tettermoor skating run. On the way you pass by Waldhäuslalm.
"Almenrunde" in general is a very easy cross-country run. Only the loop passing by Angereralm is of medium difficulty and requires a bit more of balance and attention!
Available GPS data - just like maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a track with all its details. Moreover, cross-country runs are dependent on snow conditions. Thus they might be shorter or routed differently than shown on the maps.
In an emergency please call:
There are no set prices for use of the XC trails in Untertal valley! You can decide for yourself how much the trails are worth to you. There are small boxes at the trail heads for your voluntary contibution. Since grooming of the trails is largely dependent on the quality and amount of snow, conditions are not always the same. But of course, our hard-working crews always try their very best.
