Exploring the Ramsau winter wonderland

You won’t believe how much there is to do in and around Ramsau am Dachstein during the winter months.  How about a cosy horse-drawn sleigh ride, a snowshoe hike, ski touring, cross-country skiing or alpine skiing


Ramsau am Dachstein is a top choice for ski touring. Over 20 ski tours start at the Dachstein Glacier and Ramsau mountain station.

And the most famous ski tour in Austria starts at the Dachstein mountain station ... The Dachstein Crossing or, as it’s often called, Austria’s National Ski Tour!

Just remember that part of the tour covers high alpine terrain. You need to have an avalanche transceiver, a shovel, an avalanche probe, a helmet and an airbag pack with you. And make sure you keep an eye on the latest weather and avalanche information. We have a huge selection of touring equipment for sale at our shop.
