General information

The massive ski region of Ski Amadé is ideal for ski holidays and consists of five different areas: Salzburger Sportwelt, Hochkönig Winterreich, Schladming-Dachstein, Gastein and Grossartal. Together, they account for around 270 lifts and 860km of perfectly prepared runs. These ski areas are among the best in the world. The world champions are held here regularly, meaning if it’s good enough for the professionals then skiing in Ski Amadé is good enough for everyone.

Ski holidays in the Ski Amadé region benefit from long seasons and the Dachstein Glacier makes the Schadming-Dachstein ski area relatively snow-sure meaning you can usually ski until late April. If, for any reason, there should be less snow than expected, don’t fret, the snow canons will cover up to 88% of the slopes with beautiful white-powder snow making skiing in Ski Amadé possible in any weather condition.

One thing that makes skiing in Ski Amadé special, is the ability to stay connected and share live updates to your social media friends and followers. There are around 300 WiFi hotspots located in the valley, the mountain stations, the huts and the restaurants on the slopes. The WiFi hotspots are also great for planning your ski route for the day. With the Ski Amadé ski pass you can ski in all five areas and use the public transport system to get from one area to another.

Skiing in Schladming-Dachstein | Skiing in Ski Amadé

The World Championships were held in the ski area of Schladming-Dachstein in February 2013 making it world-famous and now one of the best-prepared ski areas in the Ski Amadé region. The ski area also hosts an annual night-slalom, which attracts many skiers and snowboarders not only from the region but from around all of Europe.

This modern ski area consists of nine mountains with 3 of them reaching over 2000m high and 4 are interconnected by various ski lifts and gondolas. The 4 mountains that are interconnected are Hauser Kaibling, Planai, Hochwurzen and Reiteralm making the area perfect for day trips and tours. If you wish to have a quieter day away from the slopes then the villages of Haus im Ennstal, Mandling, Pichl, Rohmoos bei Schladming and Schladming are all picturesque and welcoming.

Schladming-Dachstein has lots to offer for advanced skiers. For example, the Planai has very steep and fast slopes and the Reiteralm has, among other things, a black mogul field.  For those, who are very competitive, you can even have your speeds measured for free while doing the run. You’ll be able to post you’re action shot online and show your skills off to your friends and family back at home.
