Even though it is a relatively quieter village, compared to Schladming, Haus im Ennstal has many restaurants, bars and cafés to choose from.
The village is located next to the river Enn, which can be derived from the name of the town. Haus im Ennstal is locate centrally in the ski region of Schladming-Dachstein. There are 2 gondolas that will take you up the mountain, both situated at the edge of the village. Two cable cars take you directly to an enormous ski paradise with 166 kilometers of pistes. The freestyle arena on the Hauser Kaibling with its 120 meter long half pipe, obstacles, jumps and quarter pipes is a real challenge for even the most experienced freestyler! The local ski area of Haus im Ennstal is best for intermediate to advanced skiers. The runs in this area are well kept and snow canons make sure that there will be sufficient snow for skiing during the high season.
Cross-country skiers are definitely not forgotten in this area, since there is no less than 40 kilometers of tracks around Haus im Ennstal and a total of 350 kilometers of tracks in the Dachstein-Tauern Region. There are some excellent hiking options here too.
This modern resort has nine mountains with three of them above 2000m altitude. Four of the nine mountains in this area are connected by connecting lifts: Hauser Kaibling, Planai, Hochwurzen and Reiteralm. These links makes it extremely easy to take day trips to other areas. Schladming-Dachstein offers excellent opportunities for advanced skiers. One example in the Planai, which offers very fast and steep slopes.
Families can enjoy the excellent Galsterbergalm, Fageralm, Stoderzinken and on the other side of the Ennstal, Ramsau am Dachstein. In Ramsau cross-country skiers and hikers will also enjoy themselves with a range of different tracks.
