The road to there is safe and clear. The view definitely worth for a time to go there. Amazing lake and mountains around it!

I spent there three days including the New Year's eve and it was definitelly worth it. Not so many people, various types of ski pists and tasty traditional Austrian food was what I had been looking for. Except for the extremely annoying musig (the Austrian pop) being played at every bar and cafe, this is a perfect place to relax.... More

Dachstein West is certainly not a top-notch resort like Lech-Warth or Skiwelt Amadé. It is, however, a very decent mid-size resort that is perfect for families. The ski schools offer good quality and nice teachers. The runs offer something for everyone: long, short, blue, red, black, man-made snow and natural, even a park - there is a lot to discover...

I love this area, its not as big as Schladming or similar, but has enough kilometers of slopes and lifts to ski all day in differant terrain. We lived on Sonnenalm at Markus and Heidi Wenko, their family cottage with restaurant. Tasty food, good Schnaps and Wein, Heidi own backed cakes. Early in morning you are always the first on...

We were visiting Gosau for a week and want to go skiing while there. This was a great place to go. One part of it is located right in Gosau. We had great snow conditions and had a really good time. We were only able to go one day, but there are enough slopes to keep in interesting for many... More

Went with family and boyfriend for a skiing holiday. Gosau was a gem - very laidback and quaint village with small towns accessible by car. The Dachstein West is a huge ski area however, we were unfortunate that there was no snow at all throughout our entire stay so they had artificial snow instead which was pretty coarse and not...

Ski region Dachstein West is not very big, although in case of good weather it offers amazing view of Dachstein. The slopes are situated in woods so it is a bit fragmented. Some slopes are not very suitable for snowboarders as they are a bit flat. There is very friendly staff and you can choose from plenty of chalets to... More

We got cheap midwinter, last minute airfare. Unfortunately the ski conditions around the area were not so good. But that allowed us to have fun doing more than skiing. But the skiing was fun also. Not so groomed as the US and much wetter snow that some of the powder in the Rockies. But they use all kinds of different... More
