If you love skiing and snowboarding and you are not beginners, then go to Kitzsteinhorn. It is a glacier in the Alpes in the Hohe Tauern. Snow is there all year long. Kitzsteinhorn is 3203 meters high and situated to the north from the highest mountain in Austria - Grossglockner.
Easy hills great for children but for grown-ups as well. There are ski slopes and tows without long lines. We talk about Lower austria. Mostly, there are blue-difficulty ski slopes and around you can find amusing parks, freeride arenas, evening skiing, and ski slopes suitable for sportsmen. This all is not far away.
Maintained slopes, snow covered landscape, amazing vistas, mountain air, cozy cabins – all of these are ingrediends for an unforgettable winter vacation.
The highest peak of Dachstein is called Hoher Dachstein. It is a massive mountain rising to 2 995 m. You can find it above sleep southern slopes. You can reach the glacier are below the summit either by walking from the northwest (usually from Adamek Hütte and Simony Hütte). You will go along ferratas along the southern slope. Or you can take the Südwandbahn cable car (as we mentioned in our previous articles).
We are at Südwandblick, a resting area at 2510 meters. We have just written our names into the summit book of records. Now we can go on and we are still not at our final destination. Through C/D section we got atop a terrace at high altitude. There you can barely reach rope on the wall separating you from the abyss (if you are not tall). The trail from here is, however, easy. The height however is awesome.
Der Johann is the king of all Dachstein ferratas (klettersteig). This is thanks to its location, difficulty and the lenght. It easy to access. Red dots mark it all the way. I tis recommended to park your car at the bottom station of the Dachstein Südwandbahn cable car. Once there, set off to the righ along the cables in the direction upwards to Südwand Hütte. You get under the cables when the trail swerves westards. In 40 minutes of walk you get to beautiful stone paved trail. However, you just go around it. By following the directions you will move in the northwest direction and there you board the klettersteig after an hour of walk.
The northwest of Dachsteinu is characteristic for raising slightly. There are also glaciers. You can’t get to the top no other way than going on your own (there are no cable cars). The western part of Dachstein has only one large mountain cabin Adamek Hütte (2 196 m n. m.), ke které se nejlépe dostanete od Gosausee (10 minutes by car from Gosau village). I tis a beautiful lake great for taking a swim shielded by two thousand meters high mountains in the south.
Vast mountain ranges and the East Alps stretching across Austria. These are the endless source of inspiration for outdoor activities in any season of the year. The Seckau Tauern is a marvelous mountain range. It will leave any fan of nature and its beauties with strong impressions.
Dachstein massif can be accessed from any direction. There are many advantages to every of them. The most popular are cable cars (we told you about them in the first part of the series). Dachstein Südwandbahn is a cable car in the south. It takes you almost one kilmoeter up above the clouds in just ten minutes. There is a restaurant at the upper cable car station. You can find it on the top of Hunerkogel mountain.
