This particular Friday is a good day for Sulzberg: three quarters of a metre of snow has fallen in the past twenty-four hours. Just outside the village centre, the snow groomer is busy laying down fresh cross-country ski trails in the fluffy powder snow at the Nordic Sport Park.
Nordic sports are particularly at home on the sunny high plateaus of the northern Bregenzerwald. Heading towards Allgäu, the hills become increasingly gentle. The municipality of Sulzberg has become a Mecca for cross-country skiing and biathlon in recent years. The 2012 opening of the Nordic Sport Park played a key role. All the facilities that cross-country skiers could ever wish for are available here: Twenty kilometres of trails for classic and skating technique, rental skis and boots, a dedicated biathlon facility, Vorarlberg’s first cross-country and biathlon school as well as “Ski-Arc,” featuring archery on cross-country skis.
