On tour with skis
Bad Ischl - your starting point for stunning ski tours
The best skiing fun ever for real experts. Just pure nature: the mountain, your skis and you.
Ski tours in the Salzkammergut tourist region
It's as if the snowy mountains in the Salzkammergut tourist region were made for unforgettable ski tours. There is hardly any other landscape that offers so many charming highlights, takes you on such beautiful tours as in the Salzkammergut tourist region. Mountains, slopes and glaciers are just waiting to be climbed and gently conquered on skis.
The snow crunches under the skis, all around there is nothing but clear winter air and a snow-covered landscape: the climb is step by step, totally at your own pace with a whole lot of time to yourself and to enjoy nature – and as a reward for the perspiration and exertion an overwhelming view at the summit, a rest in a cosy mountain inn and a stunning descent over slopes covered in deep powder snow in unspoilt nature. It's an almost sensuous fascination that comes from ski tours – an adventure that is totally in harmony with nature.
Tourers can find everything their heart desires in the Dachstein and Salzkammergut tourist region. For example a wonderful relatively easy ski tour with stunning views over the Dachstein leads to the Hütteneckalm in Bad Goisern. A ski tour up to the Goiserer Hütte is a similarly rewarding and unforgettable experience. Classics like the Dachstein crossing or the versions on the Krippenstein are routes that get any tourer's pulse racing.
Secret tip: the Katrin
Bad Ischl's local mountain has long ceased to be a real secret tip among ski tour fans. Ever since traditional downhill skiing was stopped on the Katrin it has become a real paradise for ski tourers.
And another advantage – the ski tour paradise just outside Bad Ischl is just a few minutes away from your winter holiday hotel the Goldener Ochs. The Salzkammergut tourist region also offers perfect conditions for snowshoe hiking.
