Our cross-country ski 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 is even right in front of and the cross-country ski centre within the youth hostel itself – or they are easily accessible on foot within a short distance. Cross-country skiing equipment can be securely stored in the ski room and there are spacious rooms available for training meetings for the more ambitious teams and clubs. In many places there are local partnerships with cross-country ski centres and rental companies, where you can benefit from the know-how of the instructors and top equipment.
