The Dachstein-Glacier in winter

The Dachstein is one of the most visited Styrian excursion destination. And no wonder - it is the first glacier in the Alps when approaching from the East. Even the ascent to the Dachstein Glacier with the new panoramic gondola is an experience: you climb 1,000 metres and brush past sheer rock walls. Arriving at 2,700 metres above sea level, you look out over a fantastic panorama of hundreds of mountain peaks.

Info on skiing on the Dachstein in winter 2022/2023

The situation on the Dachstein Glacier is very dynamic. Due to crevasses, skiing in autumn is impossible and extensive technical adaptations to the glacier lifts would also have been necessary for winter operation. Therefore there will be no skiing on the Dachstein Glacier in autumn-winter 2022/23.
This would be irresponsible towards nature, but also with regard to economic aspects. Activities such as winter hiking, ski touring, cross-country skiing and stopping off at the glacier restaurant are still possible on the Dachstein glacier and, above all, the magnificent panoramic experience is and remains the most impressive holiday memory. With regard to skiing for the winter of 2023/24, the situation will be reassessed at the beginning of 2023.
The cable car, the glacier restaurant and the Dachstein attractions are still open as usual.
