Competition with sweeping views: On this training route used by the former world cup athlete, Nathalie von Siebenthal, cross-country skiers can try to better her times. All the while as you enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains. The training trail used by up-and-coming young talent Nathalie von Siebenthal from Lauenen is set in the Turbach, an idyllic Gstaad side valley. This tranquil village can be reached in less than a quarter hour from Gstaad. Nestled between Wistätthorn, Tube and Giferspitz, this sunny level area is an inviting place for a leisurely round amid a superb winter landscape. But you can also enjoy the silence of nature in a more strenuous way: Using a Strava app or a stopwatch, ambitious cross-country skiers can compete with Nathalie von Siebenthal and test their skills on the original training track used by the young athlete. The trail runs from the village to Wintermatte and back again.
At the trail there are three information panels showing the sections - 6.5 kilometres, three and one kilometre long - as well as the best times that the 2015 U23 world champion has achieved.
The region has a further 9 chalet villages alongside Gstaad, located at an altitude of between 1,000 and 1,400 metres. Yet despite its style and class, Gstaad has remained genuinely Alpine and down-to-earth. It is proud of its tradition and lives and breathes it every day.
Over a thousand cultural and sporting events are available to visitors every year, including top events with an international reputation. In addition, visitors will find first-class hotels, outstanding shopping facilities along the traffic-free promenade and an airport in Saanen.
