A paradise for cross-country skiers has developed around Lake Weissensee. You can start on the practice tracks or on the popular Seewiesen cross-country ski track right next to the lake.

With momentum into the nature paradise

A network of around 40 km of dual tracks & skating tracks criss-crosses the sunny and fog-free Weissensee Valley. In one of Carinthia’s most beautiful cross-country skiing regions you will find all cross-country skiing options, all leading through the stunning scenery of the lake and mountain world. Right next to the lake at 930 m, you start into an excellent cross-country skiing experience: Lake Weissensee has been awarded the Carinthian cross-country skiing seal of approval.

Biathlon for everyone

Experience the fascination of biathlon live! Biathlon is one of the most exciting sports of modern times. Biathlon is a combination of two sport disciplines requiring best performances from body and spirit. While the ski trail and lake Weissensee demand power and good shape, moments later at the rifle range concentration and calmness are needed – a thrilling interplay with particular sportive charm. Who will try to be a “hunter on cross-country skis” can do so in the newly erected laser rifle range at the Trail Centre in Techendorf.
