Cross country skiing dobbiaco

Has anyone else booked yet for this trip?

I'm going on the 8th feb. Never tried cross country skiing before!


We went to Austria for the first time last year and really enjoyed it. It is hard work, but nicer and safer than downhill


We will be there XC skiing in February. We have been to the same hotel for a summer walking holiday with Waymark about 10 years ago....and we got snow in Sept which curtailed some of the just hoping there will be lots more snow than the two lots which I spotted on the town webcam recently. The week is virtually sold out so it should be fun. Yes hard work as noted above.


Are you going first week in February? How many times have you been cross country skiing before? What's the hotel like?


Hi Team Weasel, We are going Feb 1st. As I recall it the hotel was pretty nice 10 years ago when we went in the Summer and reading the reviews it is probably even better now. I do recall we went out for drinks each night across the road and one night went 9 pin bowling at another hotel. I have photos on a Picasa web album of the area in the summer but not the hotel. This is our 10th year of XC, but we are still learning....after all we only do it for six days, once a year so you soon forget! For anyone on their first time XC they need to be prepared to be pretty exhausted at end of each day, unless they are pretty fit to start with.


Look forward to meeting you. This will be our second time cross country, having been to Austria in February this year, but mr TW has been alpine skiing many times and is very good, so he took to cross country like a duck to water. I am not so confident. I got the basic technique but struggle with the snow plough as I have painful knees. Definitely upping the fitness level for this trip! You must have plenty of stories if this is your tenth time.
