As seen from the east, the ski resort on the Dachstein is the first glacier in the Alps where you can ski. The ascent with the Gletscher (glacier) lift is a true experience. You will ascend 1000 meters in elevation and glide right past a steep cliff. Once at the top, a panorama of hundreds of mountain peaks awaits you. In addition to the wide glacier slopes, numerous and varied attractions are found on the Dachstein (i.e. the Dachstein Eispalast (ice palace)).
