Cross-Country Cross Skills Park

Cross-country skiing is a dynamic sport that requires not only physical but also versatile technical skills. These skills must be learned early and purposefully, trained and consolidated in tests or competitions. This is where the Cross-Country Cross Skills Park comes in. In the park, key movements and core competencies of modern cross-country skiing are addressed with specific exercises.

Cross-country skiing in this form is extremely popular with children and young people. The Cross-Country Cross Skills Park enhances the range of cross-country trails for families and is an attractive winter playground for children. The Cross-country Cross Skills Park is closed for the 2019/20 winter season, but will reopen next winter as soon as snow conditions permit.
