Cross country skiing/Langlaufen
The Leutasch Valley is one of the best places in the world in which to cross country ski, with 260km of prepared trails to explore. A far cry from the lycra-clad athletes in the olympic biathlon, classicstyle crosscountryskiing can be picked up fairly quickly, allowing you to go off along the trails after one or two lessons. For those who are up for the challenge, skating style. Is more technically and physically challenging. Lessons and ski-hire easily available.

Tobogganing (Rodelbahn)
Truly excellent fun for adults and children alike, this is sledging but not as we know it. Walk (or get the chairlift) up to the top and you’re away down the slope. It could be 2km or so to the bottom so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the experience. Toboggans available to hire locally.

Winter walking/running
Everyone knows that you can ski in Austria, but very few consider winter walking. The Leutasch Valley and Seefeld plateau have hundreds of kilometres of prepared tracks. Rambling along these trails with the snow falling softly around you is one of the greatest pleasures of winter. All you need is warm walking gear and some good hiking boots. A couple of hours and then a stop for some hearty food and a glühwein. Sounds like a perfect day...
