The Dachstein West family: Winter paradise with friends

One ski ticket, eight regions, 70 lifts and 160 kilometers of dream slopes: Dachstein West is the name of the friendly dream ski area with a high snow guarantee and the unforgettable Dachstein panorama in front of your ski goggles.


Wide downhill runs for carving and gliding, 14 fun ski runs on which the fun lies in the curves. Snowparks and freeriding areas for the piste artists. Kids and fun parks that bring out the best in the little ones. The 44-kilometer-long panoramic ski run "panoronda" for those with stamina. And finally, sunny hut terraces and warm hospitality: Dachstein West stands for very special skiing days with friends and family - but also with the necessary distance. Even in earlier winters there was no crowd in Dachstein West - neither at the lifts nor on the slopes. For this special year, however, preparations have been made here that go far beyond the legal measures and at the same time make skiing vacations as uncomplicated as possible. Everything so that the ski region in the geographical center of Austria remains a matter of the heart for winter friends large and small.


Familiar and rustic: ski area, huts and accommodation


The Dachstein West ski alliance includes a total of eight ski areas with 160 kilometers of slopes and 70 modern lifts. The 95 percent easy to medium-difficulty pistes are particularly popular with families, as are the many ski slopes, fun parks and long valley runs. The "panoronda" ski fun round is also a real family affair. It strings together 44 kilometers of slopes between Gosau, Russbach and Annaberg and brings everyone together on the "Grand Tour". The four children's countries at the valley stations with large practice areas and funny mascots are the territory of the up-and-coming ski stars: in the ZWISI Kinderland, in Brumsiland, in the Bärencamp and in Fuxi's Kinderland the fun never stops. One of the four professional ski schools is also located directly next to each Kinderland. Children from the age of one year are also professionally looked after all day long if desired. The friendly "Du" in many places as well as the hospitality in the cosy ski huts and family-run accommodations of all categories on the slopes and in the valley make it easy for vacationers to find "family connection".  


Skiing in Dachstein West: affordable and transferable


So that the ski vacation remains affordable, favorable family tickets apply, which are transferable. Already the 4-day ski ticket can be used by parents and grandparents alternately with a child up to 3.9 years. Otherwise, children up to six years of age have free use of all transport facilities, practice lifts and magic carpets throughout the winter. At the end of the season, the "Active Family" ski package (13.03.-05.04.21) puts all generations in downhill position. If accommodation is booked in the Dachstein West families' establishments and at least one parent or grandparent purchases a 5-day ski ticket, children up to 15 years of age will whizz down the slopes for free. The journey to the Dachstein West ski region is also absolutely suitable for families. From Munich, Vienna and Prague you can reach your destination in three to five hours. Austria's second largest airport in the Mozart city of Salzburg is only an hour's drive away.
