The Slingia Nordic Ski Center near Watles is a highly-rated spot for cross-country skiers and biathletes. Athletes from many countries meet here every year for international competitions. In 2009, the Italian championships took place in Slingia/Schlinig, and in 2008 the junior world championships were held here. The 15 km long route is perfectly suited for both classical style and skating. A moderately difficult trail leads from Slingia at 1,726 m a.s.l. to the Schlinigeralm alpine pasture with a total height distance of 230 meters.
The new Ski Center comprises changing rooms and includes a cross-country ski school and a ski waxing service. Cross-country skiers without their own equipment can rent cross-country skis and accessories at the Kristiania Sports shop in Slingia.
