Cross-country skiing has long since become a trend sport. And everyone – whether novice, amateur or marathon skier – loves skiing in snow-covered landscapes. In Zurich and the region around Lake Zurich, too, there are many different cross-country ski trails to suit all levels of difficulty.
A fee is payable on many cross-country ski trails – but some are free of charge. Further information can be found on the relevant website. A Cross-Country Ski Pass is recommended for athletes who want to regularly pursue their sport throughout the winter and in different locations in Switzerland.
Cross-country skiers use the trail infrastructure at their own risk and responsibility. Generally, the trails are not checked. In contrast to many other winter activities, cross-country skiing is relatively strenuous. To enjoy the sport to the full, beginners in particular should initially choose short, easy trails.
Some regions also offer night trails. While cross-country skiing at night along a floodlit trail has a very special appeal, it should not be undertaken alone or by beginners.
