Hundreds of ski tour fans will make the pilgrimage to the fourth evening Seefeld Ski Tour Race just before Christmas.
The event will take place Dec. 19 and is organised by the Cross-Country and Tours section of the Seefeld Ski Club at the Seefeld Rosshütte.
Fitted with head torches, participants must conquer altitude differences of approximately 504 metres and 702 metres. There are two different trails to choose from and the complete course is marked out with torches and the start and finish areas are well lit.
Spectators can watch the race over a warm beverage from the Rosshütte mountain restaurant, which can be reached on skis or via the Rosshuttenbahn railway.
