Ski tours


On the Dachstein plateau

From Krippenstein mountain station all the ski tour options in the Dachstein plateau open up. Incidentally the following ski tour suggestions are just a small excerpt of the huge offer of ascents and descents on offer to you. From a relaxing half-day tour, to multi-day ski tours, your fitness alone is the limiting factor!

We advise all ski tour fans, who are donning their furs for the first time at Krippenstein-Dachstein, to be taken safely through the mountains by a guide. The team from Outdoor Leadership are an expert partner for guided ski tours. Trained, state qualified ski and mountain guides take you safely through the landscape, provide tips on technique and avalanche awareness and show you the nicest places on the Krippenstein and Dachstein - and of course the best ski runs!

Tip: Rumpler-Ticket for ski tourers
