Gaudi Snowshoe Biathlon.

Target shooting and fast running are the premises in the biathlon. With us, the cross-country skis are exchanged with snowshoes and the fun of the movement is paramount. At the Snowshoe Biathlon of the Silberregion Karwendel, there are also great prizes up for grabs.

The snowshoe test festival is sustainable on the part of the tourism association and the Schiestlhof. The event was awarded as "GREEN EVENT TIROL basic".
