Parents as well as our younger guests can have fun with cross-country skiing in Gerlos. From the age of approx. 6 years old, children have the body tone required to coordinate the long, narrow skis and maintain their balance. It is recommended that they start out with the classic style. The motto here is: take it slowly! Slide one ski forward with the other behind, use the poles to push off and then simply glide along. The short, 1 to 2 km long cross-country trails are the perfect way for little ones to try skiing for the first time. One final tip: make sure you pack a little reward! A piece of chocolate or gummy bears can work wonders!
