Ski area Rittisberg/Dachsteingletscher

With the lift pass ''Ski amadé,'' you have the choice between 5 ski regions, 760 km of piste, and 270 lifts (see ski region).

The ski area of Ramsau am Dachstein - Rittisberg (1,600 m) and Dachstein glacier (2,700 m) offers 30 km of varying pistes. The Rittisberg is particularly popular among beginner skiers and snowboarders due to its mostly easy to middle-difficult pistes. Children can let off steam in "Kalis Kinderland" at the foot of the mountain, and will also find the longest fairy tale run in Austria (3 km).

The Dachstein glacier has more pistes for advanced skiers. The 18 km long Edelgrieß ski route with 1,500 m difference in elevation is the most challenging descent on the glacier. A highlight is the intersection of the glacier with the Hallstätter See, which stretches 20+ km and boasts incredible views. For the way back, ski buses are available three times a week between Hallstatt and Schladming.

If you want to review your day on the piste you can log on to Skiline with your ski pass number and see your used services such as used lifts, the amount of kilometres you skied or how many metres in height you passed.

Important Note
Please note that skiing on the Dachstein glacier will be suspended in the winter season 2022/23.

Night skiing Ramsau am Dachstein

Night skiing in Austria is a special experience, as being on the piste by night and skiing in floodlight is enchanting. At the Hochwurzen in the Planai & Hochwurzen ski area, piste 33 is a 3 km illuminated night ski run. Between 19:00 and 23:00 you can use the Hochwurzen-Gipfelbahn lift in order to ski at night time. You can even take breaks in the local mountain hut. However, night skiing fun is not included in the lift pass, and a separate night pass ahs to be acquired in resort. At the Rittisberg near Ramsau you can also use the 3.5 km night toboggan run from 19:00.

Après ski Ramsau am Dachstein

Apres ski starts in the bars in the valley stations, where you can drink your first "Schnapserl" on your way down. A favourite meeting point is e.g. the "Platzhirsch" at the Planai. Countless huts along the pistes also invite you in for a drink and a hearty meal! In Ramsau, there are many possibilities for a highly enjoyable evening.
