A true winter paradise awaits cross-country skiing enthusiasts at the Matreier Tauernhaus, which is located directly at the entrance to the romantic valley Gschlösstal.

Matrei in Osttirol offers also another fantastic cross-country trail. The so-called "Dorfloipe Matrei in Osttirol", which - as the name suggests - is located directly in the village, was launched in the winter season 2020/21. This route is 4 km long and ideal for beginners as well as for advanced skiers, Furthermore the Dorfloipe is embedded in a wonderful winter landscape, surrounded by peaks such as the Großer Zunig and the Hinteregger Kogel.
The other valleys of the Nationalpark Hohe Tauern Osttirol - Virgen, Prägraten am Großvenediger and Kals am Großglocker - also have great cross-country skiing trails. These places can be reached easily and comfortably with the bus (free use with the guest card).
