Cross-country skiing on the Postalm

The Postalm is home to the most beautiful cross-country ski trails in the Salzkammergut. This place promises untouched nature, fresh mountain air and a tranquillity that is rarely found.

The natural depression of the Postalm plateau shields you from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The trails start there at 1,200 meters above sea level and lead up to 1,400 meters in places - an ideal training altitude for any athlete.

The most beautiful trails of the Salzkammmergut

Three high-altitude trails, a beginner trail and a dog trail make the Postalm an attractive place for cross-country skiers. The trails have a total length of 25 kilometers and are groomed for both classic and skating. The optimal condition of the routes makes it possible to be on skis at all times - there is no need to take off your skis for a while.

From various starting points, the cross-country ski trails lead through the hilly landscape of the Postalm plateau with some short, steep ascents and descents. All trails (except the Ramsauloipe) are interconnected, which makes it easy for you to plan your route.  

For all those who are on cross-country skis for the first time or for those who want to warm up before the long route: The beginner's trail is the gentlest introduction to cross-country skiing fun. It starts directly at parking lot 1 - just before the chairlift.

Entry/end point: Parking lot 1

The 5-kilometre trail leads from parking lot 1 (lift ticket office) of the Postalm Winter Park via the Innerlienbachalmen and the Rosserhütte back to the starting point.

Once you have completed the first, long ascent, you glide comfortably over the hilly landscape. A magnificent view of the Labenberg awaits you here. The route then takes you gently downhill past the Rosserhütte and back to the starting point. If you want to extend the route, you can join the connecting trail to the panorama trail directly above the Rosserhütte.

The twelve-kilometre-long panoramic trail leads into a fairytale winter wonderland and gives you magnificent views of a fascinating mountain backdrop along the way. It is the longest of the Postalm trails.

Starting from parking lot 3, it is about 1.5 kilometers uphill to the Huberhütte. The trail continues over undulating terrain and two short, steep climbs in the direction of Pitschenberg and Wieslerhorn. The trail leads across the alpine pasture area past the Wiesler and Postalm chapel back to the starting point. Alternatively, you have the option of joining the connecting trail and Lienbach trail at the Huberhütte, both of which lead to parking lot 1.

The connecting trail lies between the Lienbach and panorama trails. Starting from the Lienbach trail, you will cross sunny alpine terrain to the Huberhütte, where a magnificent view of the Postalm plateau awaits you. The loop either takes you back over wooded terrain to the parking lot or you can join the panoramic trail at the Huberhütte.

The Ramsauloipe is a cross-country ski trail with great views, on which dogs are also allowed. With a slight ascent of 72 meters, it is also suitable for children. So nothing stands in the way of a family outing with your furry friend.

The trail starts at parking lot 2, opposite Haus Kathrin. The trail leads along the Ramsaualm over hilly terrain with a view of the mighty Rinnkogel. Turn right, through a wooded area and along the beautiful mixed forest back to the starting point.
