Skiing in Schladming
The Schladming region ranks as one of the most popular skiing areas in Austria in the winter. It is part of the Ski Amade which offers one of the largest selections of slopes and lifts in all of Austria on a single pass.
Skiing & Boarding in Schladming
The Ski Amade encompasses 5 ski regions with 860km of slopes.
The Schladming-Dachstein ski region has 123km of slopes and 46 lifts including the world famous Planai stadium - the only Alpine venue with a Worldcup downhill that finishes in the centre of the town.
The Schladming ski area comprises four mountains which are well linked - the Hauser Kaibling, Planai, Hochwurzen and Reiteralm.
There are a number of good long runs such as the Hochwurzen valley run (7.7km), the Hauser Kaibling FIS hill, Galsterbergalm valley run and Riesneralm Forest run (each 7km long) as well as the Reiteralm Valley run (6km)
Cross Country Skiing
This was where the 1999 Nordic Ski World Championships were held. But even today, the world elite still take
advantage of the outstanding conditions at elevations ranging from 1100 to 2700 meters for their training. Beginner or professional, “Sunday” XCer or finely tuned athlete – with the Dachstein constantly before their eyes and a variety-packed trail network extending out some 220 km, everyone finds just what they have been looking for. Breathtaking panoramas of the surrounding alpine world are an added bonus, at no extra charge… And where better to take part in a beginners’ course than one of the region’s outstanding cross-country schools!
Dachstein Panorama Gondola
The ride up on the Dachstein lift, which also features a unique gondola balcony, is a memorable experience in its own right, rising 1,000 meters in just 6 minutes, the craggy Dachstein massif seemingly close enough to touch.
Nerve-tingling excitement with a view is promised to you by the 100-meters-long suspension footbridge on the Dachstein, as well as the Stairway to Nothingness, a viewing platform made out of glass.
