Ski Tours for Everyone
Popular ski tours in the Dachstein Massif
The Dachstein glacier is home to many ski tours which are accessible not only in winter but also well into late spring.
Spectacular views and steep descents make a ski touring holiday at the Rittis Alpin Chalets a unique and unforgettable experience.
After walking up to the top with the aid of skins, there is enough time to admire the majestic landscape before embarking on a thrilling run back down into the valley through powder or wonderfully soft spring snow.
