austrian biathlon & cross-country skiing
A skiing holiday in St Michael im Lungau doesn’t have to mean chair lifts and endless downhilling when you’ve got activities like Biathlon to get stuck into!
Mix-in snow biking, snow shoe tours, Ski & Deep off-piste sessions and even some night-tobogganing – yes…we said NIGHT-TOBOGGANING!! – and you have the most amazing alpine chalet holiday (or hen and stag doo!) to look forward to!
So read on (or check out our Austrian Snow Games package) for all the alpine fitness fun on offer here in The Lungau!
be james bond for the day!
More Spy Who Loved Me than Skyfall, during our Biathlon workshop – as recommended by UK fitness magazine Coach here – you’ll master cross country skiing, navigating the Alpine course and scoping out targets in true Bond style.
The true test is to control your heart rate while remaining cool under pressure, taking your shots before hotfooting it as only 007 knows how.
All this under the guidance of 3x Austrian champ and Olympic games 2002 participant Marc Meyer, whose father was also Austrian national biathlon coach, so there’s some guaranteed XC pedigree!!
Contrary to popular belief, these are not elite sports reserved for experts – anyone can give them a try. The best thing is that it’s fun and it can be as strenuous or as easy as you want it to be…
We also offer specific cross country skiing sessions for all abilities and can also take cross country skiing groups out for a tour of the mountain tracks and slopes across Lungau.
As mentioned, we work with the experts at Gnadenalm, towards Obertauern, where they cater for all abilities of shooting and cross-country skiing. Established by three-times Austrian champ and 2002 Olympian, Marc Meyer, you will navigate the Alpine course and scope out your targets like the pros.
Some of our guests would have done a bit of cross country but never held a gun. Others have tried shooting but don’t know one end of a ski from the other. However, Marc Meyer and his Gnadenalm team put you at ease instantly and, as well as giving you a bit of a workout, they make it really great fun!
