Obertraun is part of the Dachstein West Ski Region which includes two distinct ski areas: Gosau, (20 minute drive) with 140kms of manicured intermediate piste. The area is ideal for those who enjoy uncrowded, long wide piste on which to cruise. Full ski school facilities are available in Gosau and Russbach. The Krippenstein, (2 minute drive) boasts the longest piste in Austria at 11km and is gaining a reputation as one of the top off-piste ski areas in Europe, offering something completely different for those looking for the ultimate thrill.
These are relatively unknown areas and so offer less crowded skiing. Apres-ski opportunities are limited and so the area is more suitable for families and those that enjoy their skiing. A Free Ski Bus is available to both of these ski areas.
For something a little different, it is also possible to reach the 5 Fingers Viewing platform high on the Dachstein, using SnowShoes. Snowshoe tours can be organised, using the valley walking trails or guided tours on the Krippenstein, or a mixture of both.
