The cross-country skiing night track is flood-lit daily from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. From its access point at the campsite a short stretch takes you first over the pedestrian bridge which spans Ötztaler Ache river. At its start the trail leads towards the hamlet of Ober-ried - then slightly ascending to the Plague Chapel and further on to its finish at the footbridge.
