Cross-Country Skiing in Amden
The around 7 kilometers (4 miles) of cross-country ski trails lead from Arvenbüel through snow-laden woods, over small wooden bridges and across open fields with beautiful views of the stunning mountain panorama around Lake Walen. It is well worth taking a short break at the Chapf vantage point, where you are treated to a beautiful view of the lake 800 meters (2,625 feet) further below.
Chapf Loop Trail
This 2.7 km (1.7 mile) circuit trail is particularly well suited for novices, for the track – which is prepared for both the skating and the classic style of skiing – is virtually free of elevation.
Hinterstock Loop Trail
Proficient cross-country skiers can opt for the more demanding, 4 km (2.5 mile) Hinterstock circuit. However, this route is only groomed for classic skiing.
The two loop trails can also be easily combined to form an almost 7 km (4 mile) long route. Use of the cross-country trails is fundamentally free of charge; however, the operators welcome a contribution towards costs.
