 The heavy and technically difficult cross-country ski trail on the Planneralm in Donnersbach - Liezen / Steiermark / Austria - is three kilometers long and only suitable for fit, experienced skiers. Because of the altitude of 1625 to 1720m this is a ski trail with always a lot of snow. From the parking lot on the Planneralm by the lift ticket office, you reach the cross-country walk (green line in the Google Map) on a steep road. What is actually not a disadvantage, because the cross-country ski trail on the Planneralm begins on the first few kilometers with a 10% slope and you'll warm up on the access.

For the cross country skiing have been used existing forest roads, to protect the natural. It just results in the difficult terrain of the Planneralm ski area and just a classic track and a skating lane. The only flat section on the Planneralm trail after the slope is 500 meters long but offers some very beautiful views of the mountains surrounding the valley of Planneralm. Then it goes back to a difficult descent with some tight turns to the finish. As the trail and the toboggan run, twice crosses, you should leave only a very moderate and controlled pace.

The Planneralm offers sporty addition to the interesting cross-country skiers also an excellent infrastructure. When the lift ticket office, there is a payphone, ATM machine, a public toilet and even a sports shop. Who can cross-country skiing after the hungry or thirsty, hotels, guest houses and lodges on the Planneralm very easily reached on foot, because they lie within only a few hundred meters.
