The cross-country trails in Untertal are a true delight and an insider tip amongst the XC community.
Wonderfully grommed classic cross-country trail along the Untertal valley, flanked by the impressive mountains of the Schladming Tauern range. Especially in the morning you get a taste from where the tracks got their name.
The track starts at Hinkerbrücke bridge where informattion displays for the XC tracks are located. From there the run takes you into Untertal valley and back to your starting point along 13.5 kms. There are also alternative starting points:
Have a break at one of the cosy mountain restaurants - Gasthof Tetter, Waldhäuslalm, Sondlalm, or Gasthaus Weisse Wand.
In general, Kristallloipe XC track is an easy run. However, do take care at the steep downhill sections - towards Tetter Moor, in the area of Granglalm at the valley head and from Gasthof Tetter inn back to the starting point.
Available GPS data - just like hiking maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a trail exactly with all its details. Especially at dangerous spots it is essential to judge on site how to proceed.
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.
From Schladming take road L722 to Rohrmoos, at the roundabout in Rohrmoos turn left onto L723 into the direction of Untertal and follow the road for appr. 5 km to car park "Hinkerbrücke".
