Dachstein West - a dream Ski Holiday and Winter Holiday in Austria

Welcome to the Dachstein West ski resort
one of the most beautiful ski regions in the Northern Alps of Austria

With 63 lifts and around 155 km of groomed slopes, the Dachstein West ski resort is an El Dorado for family skiing holidays. For very young skiers there is day care at the Spatzennest or the Ski School Russbach, where they are carefully introduced to the secrets of the white magic together with other novice skiers.  The bigger ones can enjoy themselves at the Freeride Park and the rest of the family can enjoy some top skiing.

The ski region is practically at your doorstep, and as a Russbach holiday guest you are always only a few steps away from the lifts and cable car. So it is very easy to spend a bit longer at the hut of your choice, to enjoy the sunset and to indulge yourself today by descending to the valley just a bit later than usual.

Active Family special offer - Free ski pass for Children

Children up to 15 (born in 2003 or after) ski for free in the Dachstein West ski region if at least 1 parent or grandparent buys a full-price ski pass for the same period as the children’s ski pass (valid for ski passes of 5 days or more). Valid from 16.03.2019 until end of season 31.03.2019.
