It's all about rhythm...

in the middle of the breathtaking mountain backdrop of the Zillertal

The closest cross-country tracks are in Gerlos and Königsleiten, for example the Schönachtal track:
the Schönachtal track starts at the Hotel Oberwirt on the other side of the stream, in front of the Appart Gitti. The track follows 2 km then continues left over the wooden bridge, then on the right hand track towards the village. Just before the road the track turns left passed Traumhotel Alpina, continues along the Schönach stream to the Schönachhof and on to the bridge. Most of the track is also prepared for skating.
