Alois Stadlober on the Styrian cross-country skiing seal of approval
Krakau belongs to an elite group of Styrian cross-country skiing regions which have been awarded the Styrian cross-country skiing seal of approval.
What does this mean for our guests?
Firstly, the dimensions of the trails are stipulated; they have to be at least 5 km long and 4 - 6 m wide. Another important stipulation is that classic and skating trails have to be separated.
The trails are classified in three different categories and these must be clearly marked. Safety measures are made and when necessary trails are closed to protect skiers from hazards and potential dangers.
Further parameters are piste preparation standards, controls, markings and orientation as well as providing suitable sanitary facilities, litter bins, adequate car parking space, environmental protection and the supplying of information. All these factors are vital for unspoiled enjoyment of the sport in the magnificent winter landscapes of Styria.
Yours, Alois Stadlober
