Ski touring as an alternative to regular skiing:
It isn’t just XC skiers who find something to their taste here in Tennengau. A wide range of choices await ski tourers as well. The Gosaukamm and the Tennengebirge, in particular, invite you to embark on a wonderful ski tour out across hill- and mountainsides covered deep in snow.
Nothing is more beautiful than enjoying pristine nature and slicing through the snow away from the pistes.
Off-piste ski touring at the foot of the Dachstein is something that has to be practiced. Have little to no experience ? Not to worry, you can still join in the fun. Simply take part in a ski-touring course and learn the basics from experienced local mountain- and ski-touring guides. At that point, nothing more stands in the way of your personal ski tour.
