Skiing fun at the family ski resort in Salzburg

The great test of skiresort.de indicates that Dachstein West is one of Austria's most family-friendly and least expensive ski resorts and is ideal for beginners who are trying skiing for the first time. The family ski resort was awarded with 5 of 5 stars at the category family offers and restaurants and alpine huts in 2014/15.

Many chair lifts, gondolas and tow lifts will take you to where you need to go. More than 100km of the 130km groomed trails have snow making capabilities - the Dachstein West ski resort in the winterly Lammertal Valley in Austria guarantees you'll have fun in the snow!

At the top you'll have a choice between 12km of blue slopes (easiest difficulty), 15km of black slopes (expert difficulty) and 103km of red runs (intermediate difficulty).
