From December to March the area’s 223km of downhill ski pistes and 86 ski lifts rev into action. Skiing and snowboarding on the Dachstein Glacier can be done year-round but not all lifts are open in summer.

Most of the cross-country skiing is done across the valley in Ramsau (about €18 for ski hire). A medium-quality snowboard for the pistes costs €23 and snow-hiking shoes €18. Prices on the glacier are similar.
