Winter holidays in the Schladming-Dachstein region

Skiing in Ski Amadé

It has been a long time since the Schladming ski area was just a secret insider tip. By the time the FIS Ski World Championships came around in 2012, the holiday region surrounding Schladming was already on the tip of everybody’s tongue. That said, the annual FIS Nightslalom for men, the legendary ski opening every year in December and, of course, the perfectly groomed pistes of the Schladming 4-Mountain Ski Area make the region surrounding your holiday home one of the most popular winter sports destinations in Austria. Though you can also look forward to pure winter enjoyment away from the pistes as well: for example, gliding along the ski trails of Ramsau am Dachstein, a true cross-country El Dorado, sledding down the hillsides or participating in après ski at one of 100 traditional ski huts.

Skiing holidays right next to the piste

Pure skiing enjoyment awaits you right outside your front door, since your ALPS resort lies right next to the ski slopes. The Schladming ski region is part of Ski amadé and has a total of 230 piste kilometers along with 84 ultra-modern lifts in store for skiing holidaymakers. The heart of the ski region is the Schladming 4-Mountain Ski Area. It brings together the ski resorts of the Hauser Kaibling, Planai, Hochwurzen and Reiteralm for skiing enjoyment from one mountain to the next. The neighboring ski areas of the Fageralm, Ramsau am Dachstein Ski Region, Dachstein Glacier, Ski Galsterberg, Riesneralm and Planneralm are the icing on the cake.

In addition to the perfect pistes and unique panoramas of the Schladming mountains, the Schladming-Dachstein Region also adds funslopes and crossparks to its full palette of winter sports. One of our top tips, for example, is the XXL funslope on the Hauser Kaibling. And why not clock your speed on skis on the “Cool Running” hill at the Reiteralm.

Cross-country glacier skiing – Ramsau am Dachstein

At 2700 m above sea level amid the incomparable mountain scenery of Dachstein Glacier, you will discover the world’s longest glacier cross-country trail. Though needless to say, you also have the opportunity to pursue your favorite sport in the valley as well: As a hobby XCer, you will be as happy as a clam in Schladming or Haus-Aich-Gössenberg. 194 km can be enjoyed in classic style, 100 km using “skating” technique. And if you would merely like to watch, you might well want to stop by in December for the FIS World Cup in the Nordic Combined

Winter away from the pistes: sledding, fatbiking and snowshoeing

As a winter sports paradise, Schladming has a lot more to offer than skiing and boarding. For example, the floodlit sled runs on the Reiteralm and the 7 km-long natural sled run on the Hochwurzen. Or romantic sleigh rides. And have you ever heard of “fatbiking”? Ski tourers and snowshoers also find mountains of possibilities in Schladming-Dachstein. With opportunities certain to appeal to beginners as well as ambitious mountaineers and alpinists – guaranteeing you beautiful moments during your winter holidays amid the white landscapes of Styria!

Summer holidays in the Schladming-Dachstein region

Hiking, mountaineering and summer lifts in Schladming

Whole 1000 km of marked hiking paths and more than 50 mountain huts. 45 km of running and Nordic-walking trails. In our opinion, the only thing that tops this offer is the amazing scenery when you sit on the summit of the Stoderzinken (elev. 2048 m) and humbly enjoy the sunset. Or, quite simply, when you take a break and dangle your feet in the babbling waters of an icy-cold mountain stream.  

If you prefer to overcome the initial climb without investing any effort, we suggest taking advantage of the summer lifts. Aboard the Hochwurzen, from the glass gondolas, you can enjoy the view of the mighty Dachstein massif. On the Planai, in contrast, you will be greeted by the highest playground in Styria. While the Reiteralm Preunegg Jet will carry you up to a true hiking paradise: From here, you can make a beeline to Mirror Lake and the Untersee, while the “Silent Waters” theme path. If you are in the mood for a little more action, you might wish to tackle the mountain bike trails, the Reiteralm Junior Trails (also suitable for children on push bikes!) or the Franzi via ferrata (a fixed-cable climb rated C/D). The mountain lifts are included with the Schladming Dachstein Card.

Adventure Holidays in Styria: via ferratas, rock climbing

A drive taking roughly 30 minutes will bring you from your holiday home to Ramsau. A true Eldorado for climbers and via ferrata enthusiasts. 22 of the 26 fixed-cable climbs total in the Schladming-Dachstein Region are located in Ramsau. 4 climbs designed especially for young children and teens as well as Kali’s Via Ferrata Garden are ideal for youngsters excited to learn the climbing basics. The oldest via ferrata in the Eastern Alps leads to the top of the Dachstein – known as the “Randkluft”. If you would like to enjoy a first taste of adventure sports, we suggest contacting one of our local mountain guides.  

Holidays on 2 wheels: mountain biking and cycling

Schladming-Dachstein also has a lot to offer those of you who love leaning into your pedals. With opportunities for “Sunday cyclists”, E-bikers as well as mountain bikers. For MTBers in particular, we highly recommend spending a timeout at Alpenchalets Reiteralm: As of quite recently, new trails have been created practically nearly your holiday home. With 15 kilometers and 2 levels of difficulty. On the Planai, you will discover Bikepark 2.0 with 35 km of trails, a flowline for all abilities and the Jump Line with 99 (!) separate jumps.

Golfing in Schladming-Dachstein

Four 18-hole golf courses are located between the Dachstein and Schladminger Tauern. Golfclub Radstadt, Golfclub Schladming-Dachstein, Golf & Countryclub Schloss Pichlarn and Golf & Landclub Ennstral-Weissenbach all promise golfing experiences at the highest level – amid a magnificent natural setting.  

Schladming-Dachstein Sommercard included

When you check into your ALPS resort, you will also receive the Schladming Dachstein Card – for admission to 100 all-inclusive attractions. These include mountain lifts, swimming areas and lakes, buses and toll roads, museums, sports and recreational facilities as well as numerous sightseeing attractions in the region. The Schladming-Dachstein Sommercard is valid for the duration of your stay including arrival and departure days (after 1 PM on arrival day, all day on departure day).

Our excursion tips

Tip 1: Glacier adventures

When the valley temperatures begin to climb up to the 30°C mark, it’s definitely time to find ways to cool off. That includes Dachstein Glacier. From your chalet or apartment, you will always be able to see the Dachstein. Which makes it almost obligatory to pay it a visit. In just 6 minutes, the panorama gondola will carry you up the Dachstein south face, rising almost 1000 vertical meters with virtually no effort on your part at all. Though I only recommend looking down if you have a head for heights: at some points, there will be as much as 210 m of NOTHING below your feet! When you get to the top, the view of the valley and once-in-a-lifetime mountain panoramas will leave you speechless. In the giant ice caves, you will marvel at the icy sculptures, then walk across the suspension footbridge, before descending the “Stairway to Nothingness”. The perfect time and location for the best selfie of your life 😉 The Dachstein Glacier Adventure is included with your Schladming-Dachstein Card. My tip: Reserve 2 to 3 weeks in advance since the Dachstein is always in high demand!

Tip 2: Rittisberg

A 15-minute drive from your apartment in Schladming will bring you to the Rittisberg – a beautiful mountain and popular excursion destination for the whole family. Hiking paths, including the Fairytale Path and Root Path, make hiking interesting and entertaining for youngsters. From “Ramsau Beach”, a barefoot pathway leads you to the Rittisstadl. At 30 different stations, marble, sand, gravel, wood and bark mulch gave your feet a natural massage – and you will feel nature up-close on your own skin! In addition to the mountain playground and Flyline, my personal highlight was a ride on the Rittisberg Coaster. The only question that remains to be answered is whether the kids or their dads actually have more fun 😉 Other highlights include Segway rides as well as archery. Incidentally, the Rittisberg is a Schladming-Dachstein Sommercard Partner.

Tip 3: The Nightrace

As many as 50,000 spectators. The world’s best slalom skiers. And a fan mile beyond compare. This night slalom is one of the most famous spectacles on the international ski calendar. If ever you attend the FIS Nightrace for men in person, you will never forget the amazing atmosphere in the stands. Are you interested in staying at one of our chalets or apartments during the Nightrace in Schladming? In that case, I definitely recommend booking well in advance. We look forward to receiving your reservation request!

Tip 4: Water sports

During the summer months, Ennstal can turn very hot. For days such as these, I recommend paying a visit to one of the outdoor pools or natural swimming areas in Schladming. Slides, waterfalls and water jets all do their part to add to the joys of splashing about in the “wet stuff”.

Are you looking for some added adventure during your Austrian holiday? In that case, I suggest booking a canyoneering, kayaking or rafting tour. Our colleagues at the reception desk have all the contact information you need!
