Magical snow

Note for winter sports enthusiasts
Ski resorts reopen in December 2022

At the moment, the ski resorts in the Salzkammergut are in summer sleep. But even this time will eventually come to an end. Then it's back to the slopes. Snow permitting, the Dachstein West ski area in Gosau will open its doors just in time for Advent on Saturday 3rd December 2022. At the same time, the popular “Gosauer Bergweihnacht” Christmas market will also be open. In Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt, Father Christmas will open the new winter season in the FreeSports Arena on the 2000m-high Krippenstein on 24th December 2022. All subject to there being enough snow - see you skiing and snowboarding in the Salzkammergut.


Ideal skiing conditions

The Dachstein Salzkammergut region claim to have wide areas of skiing freedom and no waiting at the lifts. Experience the spell of the mountains in the secluded vastness of the Dachstein. The solitary of nature, the magic of the powder snow and the wide open spaces – this may be the ultimate experience! For those who prefer the ski piste – no matter what age – may challenge the numerous slopes of the Dachstein area!
