    More about the skiing in Schladming

  • So what's it like?

    A beautiful Austrian town with world-class skiing

    Schladming lies amidst the beautiful Dachstein Mountain region in the province of Styria. Four linked mountains provide the main ski area (111km of piste), and the region (Dachstein Tauern) also encompasses a number of smaller areas, including the Dachstein Glacier. Schladming hosted the World Ski Championships in 2013 and invested heavily in new ski lifts. The area offers some superb diverse, skiing from pretty tree-lined runs to the more challenging downhill used annually for the men's World Cup night slalom. The large, bustling town of Schladming dates back to Medieval times and has lots to offer with pretty cafés, après ski bars and plenty of shopping.

    Ski information

    Ski Information Beginners

    The excellent Schladming ski school meets at Rohrmoos and the Planai nursery areas are extremely well-ordered with several gentle blues. The lower slopes of Rohrmoos are equally suitable for novices.

    Ski Information Intermediates

    With its predominantly north-facing slopes, over 80 ski lifts and 170kms of pistes, the Schladming area is first rate for intermediates with some lovely cruising pistes and long runs such as the 4.6km Fis run and the almost 8km Hochwurzen valley run.

    Ski Information Advanced

    For the advanced skier, there are two world-class downhill runs of 5kms each in the Sport Region Schladming area. The Planai itself boasts a couple of very bumpy black runs. Hauser Kaibling hosts rounds of the World Cup Women's Downhill. The Dachstein Glacier is also available by ski bus (included on the lift-pass) thus guaranteeing snow.
