Dachstein, in the middle of the Dachstein West ski region

Everything that real ski enthusiasts expect from a winter holiday in Austria – or rather, a skiing holiday in Austria – can be found here in the Dachstein West ski region. The majestic Dachstein massif can be seen from miles away, and lends this ski region its name. The ski region is located along the Dachstein and offers fascinating views of it and other impressive high mountain ranges.

Hardly anywhere else can you be so close to the high mountains and still enjoy the advantages of a ski region in low mountain ranges. These advantages include safety from avalanches, better protection from weather extremes and other high alpine dangers.
Here you can find out about the weather conditions.

The best way to discover this feeling of being high up is panorama skiing along our leisure ski circuit, the Panoronda. On the Dachstein itself there is always snow, which you can see on a ride up with the Dachstein cable car at the Krippenstein. This ski region – as well as five other ski regions – belongs to the Dachstein West ski pass network, with a total of 160 kilometres of pistes. Multi-day ski passes for one and a half days or more are valid on all lifts throughout the entire ski pass network.



Perfect for a skiing holiday in Austria with children

The centrally located and well connected ski regions of Gosau – Russbach and Annaberg offer many different perspectives of the Dachstein range and are known as sure bets for snow. In addition, over recent years there has been a huge investment in snow-making facilities. From private rooms, guesthouses, comfortable inns and the Dachstein West Alpine village to luxury family hotels, there are many different types of accommodation.

A quick look at the Dachstein West piste map makes it clear why this ski region is particularly suitable for an Austrian skiing holiday with children. At each entry point there is a children’s land where little ones are carefully introduced to skiing in a fun way by professionals. There are also children’s clubs and ski kindergartens where children can have fun, and their parents can have a little time to themselves.

For older children, there are the fun slopesFunpistes, speed routes and snow and fun parks. All of this means there’ll be great skiing with lots of variety and great views.
