Snow Adventures

From cross-country skiing to freeriding

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the beautiful Dachstein region has been a popular destination for wintersports enthusiasts for years. High above the valley floor, skiers and snowboarders will find perfectly prepared pistes and spectacular descents.

Ski touring is also popular, with the Dachstein glacier home to Austria's National Ski Tour.

  • 4 kilometres of pistes
  • funpark for freeskiers
