Dachstein Glacier located above the town of Ramsau am Dachstein in Austria at 2996 meters above the sea level.
The magnificent Dachstein glacier
Dachstein is the second highest mountain peak, glacier of the Northern Limestone Alps.
The untouched ski area of the Dachstein Glacier is ideal for the beginners, because there are three disc lifts and a double-seat chair lift available. In addition the international summer ski cross-country sports center has 15 kilometers of maintained trails and a snowboard funpark, which are waiting for skiing enthusiasts.
In the summer season, only the upper slopes of the glacier are suitable for skiing.
The attraction of the place is the ice palace that has been sculptured in the glacier's ice as a result of almost one year's work. However unfortunately, as a process of global warming, the size and thickness of the glacier is decreasing year after year, so You should seize the opportunity and try the glacier skiing experience!
You can reach the Dachstein Glacier’s skilift from SissiPark either by car or by bus. The glacier is easily accesible by bus: first travel from Haus im Ennstal to Schladming and then from Schladming station to the Dachstein Glacier.
