Dachstein Glacier in short

  • Small glacier ski area
  • 100% snow sure
  • Great ski touring

The Dachstein Glacier in Austria is perched at an altitude of 2700m above the ski resort of Ramsau am Dachstein. Part of the Ski Amadé region, the Dachstein Glacier is set against impressive mountain scenery characterised by rugged rock faces. The gentle, north-facing ski slopes enjoy good snow from December until April. In addition to skiing, the Dachstein Glacier also boasts the world’s longest glacier trail, which is 18km long.

Although the Dachstein Glacier has a decent snow park, the ski area itself is quite small, with only about 5km of slopes. The highlight for powder hounds is the ski touring possibilities, among them the Dachstein Crossing, which is considered one of the most beautiful ski tours in the Alps. Other highlights at Dachstein include the the Sky Walk and the Ice Palace.
