A mountain enthusiast since time began, on the cross-country trails I’m the person to contact for everything to do with your cross-country holiday, from simple weather information to technical questions about the condition of the cross-country trails, trail recommendations or suitable equipment. Plus, I know the most beautiful spots to take a breather and the best places to stop and eat or drink.

  • My favourite hobby:
    Cross-country skiing in winter and Nordic walking in summer. I know the cross-country skiing trails in the region like the back of my hand.
  • My cross-country skiing equipment tip:
    Waxless skis are definitely the best solution for those new to cross-country skiing.  When buying/hiring skis, we recommend that you don’t just consider the length of the ski. Much more important is the ski’s camber - this is determined by an endurance test. We’ll gladly advise you, as will our specialist sports shop in the village.
  • My favourite cross-country route:
    The Kulmberg trail, has a very varied route that’s 14 kilometres long. Start the route directly from the Hotel Rösslhof. You can also find my personal favourites among the cross-country ski tour suggestions.
  • My cross-country skiing motto:
    “Without the correct technique, going uphill is a nightmare.“ Even on guided tours I’ll give out tips on the correct technique.  Beginners in particular benefit from my many years’ experience as a local cross-country ski instructor.
  • My favourite dish:
    Pancakes with apricot jam.
    You can enjoy this dessert, too, in the Rösslhof restaurant. Enjoy!
