Transfer to the Nordic Skiing Trails


Convenient and free of charge: Transfer to the Nordic skiing trails

The public transport lines in Ötztal take cross-country skiers quickly and effortlessly to the starting point of many cross-country ski trails - for free. No need to search the right place or activate your navigation system: just get on the shuttle bus, then get off and start your cross-country skiing day! If you prefer to go there by car, there are plenty of parking areas available.

The best start into cross-country skiing adventures

On presentation of a valid Guest Card issued by Ötztal Tourismus, a skipass or winter sports equipment you can use all public bus lines within the entire valley. A comfy service that makes your stay even more enjoyable and stress-free. Don't hesitate to ask our bus drivers if you have questions about the route or need help with your skis. Of course, you can use also your own car. Find an overview of car parks next to the trails here:

 The cross-country tour is quite challenging as the full-body training also strains experienced athletes. Luckily there is a possibility to change clothes after your "work is done". Several routes feature hotels, inns and ski schools where you will find changing rooms at your disposal.
