"Edelgrieß"

Freeride hotspot in the Dachstein region

Freeriders in search of action and adventure should head for a descent known as "Edelgrieß", where experienced skiers will find plenty of challenging terrain to set their pulse racing.

The 8 km descent in the southern section of the Dachstein Massif features rocks, 45° pitches, mighty limestone faces, gulleys and wonderfully soft snow in spring.

However, be warned! Strong legs and good overall fitness are required. Those who feel up to the challenge will experience a freeride adventure to remember.
