Skiresort Dachstein West - Great Ski Holiday in Austria

The skiresort Dachstein West is located where the Dachstein mountain range presents itself at its best and friendliest, boasting Austrian hospitality for a great ski holiday in Austria.

Russbach, and Dachstein West are situated between the idyllic world-famous village of Hallstatt in the Upper Austrian Dachstein-Salzkammergut area, where the home of ski star and 5-time World Cup winner Marcel Hirscher has his training run, in the province of Salzburg. Dachstein West is still a little bit of an insider tip, but one which all ski fans, once they get to know it, give a thumbs up to.

Skiing in Dachstein West offers an impressive mountain panorama, perfect ski slopes, modern lifts and travelators, traditional mountain huts and ski passes at reasonable prices. Protected from the wind you can enjoy the views of the higher nearby mountains, especially the well-signposted, connected “panoronda” cruisers’ ski circuit with a total length of 44 km. This is only one of the reasons why Dachstein West is known as one of the ski regions with the best views in Austria – and as one of the most hospitable.

The traditional atmosphere of our ski lodges is not only loved by many happy and satisfied guests, it has also been confirmed as being above average many times in test results and in guest surveys carried out by independent market researchers. If you look at the price per kilometre of piste, then Dachstein West is in a class of its own.
