    Ski Alpin in Schladming-Dachstein

    The ultimate sports discipline in Schladming-Dachstein has always been, and will continue to be alpine skiing. With 10 ski mountains and a grand total of over 230 km of perfectly groomed pistes, everyone will find the hill destined to become their personal favorite. With elevations as high as 2015 meters above sea level, our pistes promise the ultimate high in every sense of the word – with an early start to the season and reliable snow conditions until well into springtime also guaranteed.

    The heart of the Schladming-Dachstein region is the famous Schladming 4-Mountain Ski Area. Encompassing Hauser Kaibling, Planai, Hochwurzen and Reiteralm mountains, it offers 123 km of uninterrupted skiing enjoyment. If you get an extra kick out of slicing through fresh powder, you will have ample opportunities to put together your own highlight reel right next to the piste.

With 90 km of blue-rated (beginner) pistes in total, it has never been easier to begin your skiing “career”. The icing on the cake: 17 ski schools in the region with state-certified ski instructors who guarantee a safe, fun-filled intro to snow sports.

    If you still haven’t had your fill of skiing later in the evening, the Hochwurzen is the place to be. A 3 km long night hill remains open until 10 PM, with the piste illuminated by a modern floodlighting system. For endless skiing enjoyment, practically all day, and all night long.

    The heart of the Schladming-Dachstein ski region is the famous Schladming 4-Mountain Ski Area. With the ski mountains Hauser Kaibling, Planai, Hochwurzen and Reiteralm, it offers a total of 123 kilometres of continuous piste fun. Those who take their turns here in the freshly prepared snow can also discover some highlights along the piste.

    Six fun slopes - at Hauser Kaibling even with a length of 1,460 metres - guarantee endless fun on the slopes. The Planai Superpark with 17 kickers or the Reiteralm Crosspark with its spectacular alpine hut jump guarantee an adrenaline-pumping skiing experience.

    The offer for small skiing guests is also impressive. With Kaliland and the children's adventure slopes in Ramsau am Dachstein, Hopsiland on the Planai and the children's ski routes on the Fageralm, no wish is left unfulfilled. Carousels, wave rides, talking figures and slides not only guarantee a lot of fun in the snow here - children also learn to love skiing in a playful way.

    If you can't get enough of the fun on the slopes even late at night, the Hochwurzen is the place to be. A separate, three-kilometre-long night ski slope is in operation here until 10 pm.

    On the Riesneralm you will find 32 kilometres of the finest pistes and make your turns on snow-sure slopes all the way down into the valley. The popular skiing area is especially known for the 1st Austrian Children's Ski Area - a 5 hectare area for kids.

    You can carve on the best snow in the highest ski village in Styria, Planneralm. From the beginning of December to the end of April, the Planneralm guarantees excellent piste conditions with natural snow due to its favourable location (1,600 - 2,200m) - a paradise for boarders and freeriders.

    Both mountains score points for their many child-friendly facilities and friendly prices.

    Family Ski

    The offer for our smallest ski guests is nothing to sneeze at either. With Kaliland and the kids’ play slopes in Ramsau am Dachstein, the KinderSkiSchaukel on the Riesneralm in Grimming-Donnersbachtal, Galstiland on the Galsterberg, as well as Hopsiland on the Planai and Kinderland on the Reiteralm, their every wish is certain to be fulfilled. The carousels, moguls, speaking figures and slides don’t merely guarantee lots of fun in the snow – children also learn to ski playfully and, ultimately, love the sport. The icing on the cake: 17 ski schools in the region with state-certified ski instructors who guarantee a safe, fun-filled intro to snow sports.

    Mountain Highlights

    Six funslopes – one of which, on the Hauser Kaibling, is an incredible 1460 m in length – promise endless winter fun. On the Music Piste on the Planai, skiers can boogie down the mountainside to their favorite hits, while on the Ski Movie Hills, you will even become the star of your own ski video.

    Ski action junkies are also sure to find the rush they crave in the 4-Mountain Ski Area. There are several speed hills with timekeeping, where you can establish once and for all who’s able to charge down the piste the fastest. In the meantime, Superpark Planai with 17 kickers and Crosspark Reiteralm with its spectacular “Hut Jump” both do their part to guarantee an adrenaline-pumping skiing experience as well.

    For the night ski fun an own evening menu is necessary. For guests with a valid ski pass, there is a 20% discount on the evening ticket.
