Winterholidays in Austria´s mountains

Note for winter sports enthusiasts
Ski resorts reopen in December 2022

At the moment, the ski resorts in the Salzkammergut are in summer sleep. But even this time will eventually come to an end. Then it's back to the slopes. Snow permitting, the Dachstein West ski area in Gosau will open its doors just in time for Advent on Saturday 3rd December 2022. At the same time, the popular “Gosauer Bergweihnacht” Christmas market will also be open. In Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt, Father Christmas will open the new winter season in the FreeSports Arena on the 2000m-high Krippenstein on 24th December 2022. All subject to there being enough snow - see you skiing and snowboarding in the Salzkammergut.
