As an Expert, you'll draw lines in steep terrain with solid experience in snow and tour planning, and you'll want to explore new terrain as well as exciting descents.

We love the mountains and the snow in winter; but especially as freeriders and off-piste skiers, we love powder conditions even more! Unfortunately, with deep snow always comes the danger of avalanches. And in the event of an avalanche, the rescue chain must function and the correct handling of probe, shovel and avalanche transceiver must be learned. And once learned, the knowledge should also be refreshed at regular intervals.

Therefore, in December we offer the Avalanche Camp on the Dachstein together with our favorite ex-World Cup star Stephan Görgl a 3-day event where you and your friends can get or refresh these skills. Stephan and our guides will teach you not only the vital rescue chain and the handling of the equipment, but also the correct techniques on the mountain, so that the worst case should not occur.

Included services

Accommodation with half board
Correct use of the avalanche transceiver

Accommodation
& Catering

The hotel is located in the middle of the plateau of Ramsau am Dachstein, surrounded by its own meadows and fields. In the evening is the time to relax in the Berghof sauna and SPA area.

  • Double rooms
  • Single room on request

Catering

The pleasure begins early in the morning with a fantastic view of the mountains, followed by the tasty breakfast buffet. Fine cuisine with many regional products is prepared worldly. As a digestive, a local "Vogelbeerschnaps" is recommended before the silence and darkness of the night returns.

Equipment

A prerequisite for a great freeride experience is the appropriate equipment, since you are in high alpine terrain, your equipment should be up-to-date and well maintained. If your equipment is outdated or faulty, we can organize rental equipment for you. Please let us know before your departure which equipment you might need.

Avalanche transceiver, shovel, probe

Touring backpack (optimal with ABS function)

Destination
& Arrival

The Dachstein glacier is located on the Dachstein massif and is a highlight for every mountain sports enthusiast.

Interesting spots/trails

The area of the Dachstein Mountains is between 600 and 1000 km², but a more precise classification is not possible. The massif hosts some glaciers that cannot be seen from the Enns Valley and are located in Upper Austria. A special feature of this mountain range are the extreme weather changes, which should not be overestimated.

The following peaks are located in the Dachstein massif:

  • Torstein, 2948 m Mitterspitz, 2925 m
  • High Dachstein, 2995 m - and thus the highest peak
  • Lower Dirndl, 2818 m
  • High Dirndl, 2832 m
  • Large Koppenkarstein, 2863 m
