Snow guaranteed due to the altitude, and the high altitude cross-country skiing trails are always perfectly prepared, in the Montafon ski areas. Numerous classic cross-country kilometres, and winter hiking paths await sporty guests in the region, and it is possible to make the first tracks in the fresh snow of the slopes, during snow shoe hikes on one of the numerous routes.

At 2,040 metres above sea level is the 15 kilometre long high altitude cross-country skiing trail, the "Loipe 2000", tracked across the safe ice and snow blanket of the Silvretta lake. The highest cross-country skiing trail in the Montafon is maintained into the late spring, and is an experience both for sporty, ambitious cross-country skiers, and for the whole family.
Cross-country skiing trail & winter hiking path are illuminated across a length of 7 kilometres!
Make the most of the opportunity to find the spirituality of cross-country skiing until 11.30 pm, and just feel good! A great offer for anyone who wants to walk home after a cosy evening meal, or sporty toboggan party, and round off the evening in a romantic way.
The entrance to this 9.3 km long panoramic cross-country skiing trail (only classic style), freshly tracked every day, is near the mountain station of the Montafon Kristbergbahn. The mountain station is directly next to the cross-country skiing trail.
Easy ascents continually alternate with flat track parts. Again and again, you don’t know what is coming around the next bend. Often, you want to enjoy the moment, but the increasingly enormous Lobspitz mountain range draws you towards it like a magnet.
After the loop around the Wild Ried, you unbuckle your skis, and relax with satisfaction, on one of the benches.
Cross-country skiing offers: A “free” heated changing room with locker and two wash basins, are available as a service at the mountain station of the Montafon Kristberg lift. There are also very reasonable multi day tickets for cross-country skiers.
No cross-country skiing equipment? Or left it at home? You can hire it from the ski school in Silbertal or at the panoramic guest house Kristberg.
