About Krippenstein & Dachstein

When you step foot in Austria, the heart of snowsports will surely be with you. Located in the vicinity of Salzburg is the picturesque town of Krippenstein. No matter your skill level, there are opportunities for everyone here – from the gentle groomed slopes of Dachstein West to the incredible backcountry experience of Dachstein Glacier.

Krippenstein-Obertraun offers the perfect opportunity for freeriding; complete with steep trails, cliffs, and demanding terrain. It is necessary to have a guide and the necessary safety equipment such as a beacon, probe, and shovel. Riding in this area requires advanced skills and since avalanche control is relatively scarce in Europe, it is recommended to already have backcountry experience.

For a mellower experience or those with more moderate skills, Dachstein West and Gosau offer a more typical resort experience with great groomed riding and awesome on-mountain services and dining.  You’ll also find mogul and terrain parks here.

Zwieselalm mountain in Gosau, Austria boasts gentle slopes, covered with numerous ski trails of different levels of difficulty, making it popular among the sportsmen and tourists.

Exploring the Dachstein Glacier through lift-served skiing is a unique experience, unlike any offered outside of Europe. You don’t need to bring touring skis or a splitboard setup, but it helps if you’re willing to do some hiking for the best runs. Once you make it to the goods, you can enjoy some of the best above-treeline riding and stunning alpine views. Make sure to come prepared with layers of clothes that can be taken off or on as the weather changes.
