SKI & MORE
Skiing right behind our hotel
That's where you'll find the Bergkristall ski lift, an ideal hill for beginners or anyone who simply wants to get back into the swing of things. Skis, boots and accessories can all be either rented or bought at the hotel's very own Sports Shop, where you can also book your ski course at the Pitzer Ski School.
Right in the middle of the skiing pleasure of the 4 interlinked mountains – Hauser Kaibling, Planai (Schladming), Hochwurzen, Reiteralm – and, located in the heart of Ski amadé, the Ski Region Ramsau am Dachstein. Experience unforgettable skiing days on "Austria's sunniest ski runs", where you find various pistes and cosy mountain restaurants. Ramsau is particularly favoured because of its family friendly facilities and its charming skiing offer. There are 16 ski lifts on the plateau and on the Dachstein glacier, well suited for families.
Ski lifts, from the Ramsau plateau up to the Dachstein glacier with snow guaranteed inspire Alpine skiers and snowboarders likewise. The ski runs on the sunny Ramsau plateau are in particular suitable for beginners. The next steps are the Rittisberg ski runs or the ski runs on the glacier, where also the advanced skiers and experienced carvers will be more than happy. And even the Dachstein glacier Snowpark is a particular attraction for snowboarders and freeskiers, while the experienced skiers are challenged by the Edelgrieß freeride run. Furthermore, the ski touring offer on and around the Dachstein is unmatchable. Winter sport enthusiasts of all age groups are thrilled to find such a variety of possibilities within short distance.
„Kali's magic winter world“
The Ski Region is also brilliant for the little winter guests. Children find a true paradise in Ramsau mascot Kali"s winter world. There is a colourful winter playground in Kali's magic winter world", where the little skiers are symbolically - and sometimes even personally - accompanied to the lifts and ski runs by Kali. That way, learning the right skiing technique is great fun.
Ideal Ski Region for families
The advantages of the Ramsau Ski Region are obvious: magic carpets and drag lifts bring you up the hill, because it makes it easier to start. On the Rittisberg, there is even a chairlift. Once you are on the top of the Rittisberg, Austria's longest fairy-tale ski run lies ahead of you! The flat, wide ski runs are reachable by car, which is much appreciated by parents of small children. There is a lot of entertainment along the ski lifts and runs: each lift in Kali's winter world has its own magic theme. Every family member will find an adequate ski run according to the skiing skills.
