/ Cross-Country Skiing makes me Happy!

Cross-Country Skiing makes me Happy!

Amazing, it was snowing that much during the last night that the cross-country-ski trail in Strobl at Lake Wolfgang is already well groomed. I put on my shoes and take my cross country skis with me and enter the trail in Weissenbach.

Today i decided to do the skatingski-trail - absolutely the right decision. The snow has a maximum of grip and leads to more speed. I start my warm up and do the asymmetric running style.

The trail leads me along wide fields which are farmed from the locals during the year. Beautiful farms can be seen. It's an amazing feeling - almost like sailing.

I change my method to 1:1, the so called ice skating step and shove with both ski sticks at the same time - I glide even better - that's great !

The following photo gallery can be navigated with the arrow keys (left, right).

Using the underground I cross the B158 and i find myself at the so called "Seeuferloipe" which means lakeside trail. I meet lots of cross-country skiers with happy faces. I do not wonder why everybody is smiling. The conditions are unique.

The village Strobl to the right of me is so idyllic - even while the winter time. I should visit the market in Strobl another time and taste some of the local delicacies. Maybe i'll also find a present for my lovely ones which remained at home.

Going further with my skis - the nature preserve area, the so called "Blinklingmoos" gives from time to time a view to the lakeside. The mountain "Schafberg" and the church of pilgrimage in St. Wolfgang enrich the scenery. A unique and unspoiled landscape for sportsmen and gourmets.

Meanwhile i skated until abersee, i have to go back, the trail is over here. I would appreciate it to be able to skate until St. Gilgen.

I go back, and fortunately not on the same way. The guy who is preparing the trails made a great round-trip. So I am having a look to the mountains of Strobl - Bleckwand and Sparber. I am happy and exhausted after two hours I reach my appartement and I am looking forward to the next day. Maybe I go to the Wolfgangthal or up to the Postalm.
