Nordic Spirit Festival In Pillerseetal - The Great Two-Day Cross-Country Skiing Opening In PillerseeTal!

At the beginning of the cross-country skiing season, the Nordic Spirit Festival attracts visitors to the Pillerseetal with free training sessions, equipment tests and lots of good vibes. On December 17th, winter sports enthusiasts meet in St. Ulrich am Pillersee, on December 18th in Hochfilzen, and set off on the cross-country ski trail together with the guides from the “Tyrolean Cross-Country School SINUS Georg Worter” and the “Nordic Academy”. While cracks hone their technique, newcomers dare their first attempts on the boards. Those who still have stamina can try the combination of cross-country skiing and shooting at the “ Biathlon for Everyone ” on Sunday. For the right equipment, the companies Fischer (Saturday and Sunday) and Madshus (Sunday) are on site and invite you to a free test . The cross-country skiing weekend will be musically accompanied by a laid-back DJ sound . By the way: During the festival, the approx. 100 kilometers of cross-country trails in Pillerseetal can be used free of charge. 

Simply register online at and start running. The regular day ticket, which can be purchased via QR code since this season, costs six euros.
