Our cross-country skiing hostels
Many of our youth hostels are located in winter sports resorts with an attractive network of cross-country ski trails. In some cases the cross-country ski trail and the cross-country skiing center is right in front of the house or can be reached within a short distance. The cross-country skiing equipment can be stored in the ski room and there are spacious rooms available for training meetings. In many places, local partnerships with cross-country skiing centers and rentals exist.
