Dachstein Krippenstein: Are you ready? 
For 30 kilometres of the finest deep snow? For the longest descent in Upper Austria?

Dachstein Krippenstein in Dachstein, in the Upper Austrian Salzkammergut region has been chosen as a hot spot for the freerider scene by the magazine SnowPlanet! And as well as the runs and cliff drops, the Krippenstein is convincing with its exciting programme of outdoor events –far removed from the mainstream.

Thirty kilometres of off-piste variants and the snow-assuredness of the Dachstein glacier area whet your appetite for powder snow and wide boards. Whether it’s skiing or snowboarding, the many variants at Dachstein Krippenstein and the expanse of the Dachstein Plateau fills every powder snow fan with enthusiasm! Schönberg, Imisl and Eisgrube offer rough jagged ridges, slopes which are rich in diversity and select forest routes, 1500 metres altitude for each ride demands fitness and concentration.

Here are the areas to have fun on:

  • 30 kilometres off piste variants

  • the longest descent in Austria, at 9 kilometres in length

  • the snow-assuredness of the Dachstein Glacier area and modern snow-making facilities 1500 metres altitude difference

  • Signposted snowshoe trails to World heritage helix, 5fingers, Dachstein shark

  • Cross country skiing at Krippenstein Gjaidalm

  • an ultramodern cable car

  • one hundred metres square high Alpine terrain to let off steam on
