Powder snow & fun on the slopes
Welcome to the World Heritage Region Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut! A natural landscape of mountains and lakes awaits you with unique excursion destinations.
The four towns Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt, Gosau at Dachstein, Hallstatt and Obertraun form the holiday region in the Salzkammergut.
There are many ways to have fun in the snow. Whatever you choose, you can always be certain of one thing: glistening white surroundings. And where better a place is there to enjoy all this other than the area around the imposing majestic Dachstein? Those whose passion is skiing will be drawn to the ski region Dachstein West or the Freesports Arena Dachstein Krippenstein. The choice is yours!
There are 142 kilometres of ski pistes just waiting to be explored in the ski region Dachstein West. Plenty of snow is guaranteed. There are plenty of places to relax and enjoy some après ski too. The region is equipped with modern chair lifts and cable cars, and the slopes are always in top condition. There are numerous rustic mountain huts where you can stop off and enjoy delicious home-cooked snacks whilst enjoying the spectacular panoramic mountain views.
Experience the joy of freedom from a new perspective each day. The Freesports Arena Dachstein Krippenstein boasts an 11 km long ski run as well as 30 kilometres of off piste skiing. Whether you choose to ski, go snowboarding, ski touring or snowshoeing the modern cable car will transport you up to the plateau at 2 000 m from where there are also dramatic views of the Dachstein.
Aside from the slopes, there is much more to enjoy in the region. Choose between a strenuous snowshoeing or winter hiking expedition. There are 105 km of cross country ski trails, or you might choose to rest your weary spirits and join in the fun at an ice curling contest. A romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride or tobogganing in the moonlight is the perfect way to round off the day.
