Start your ski tour right from Hotel Agathawirt

The mountain world in the Inner Salzkammergut will invite ambitious skiers to wonderful ski tours and the Freeride Arena Krippenstein offers a lot of powder and action.

The pistes and cableways in the Dachstein West ski region in the Salzkammergut in Upper Austria, in the neighbouring Salzburg and in Styria will leave nothing to be desired. But nevertheless, some sportspeople seek the backcountry, away from the lifts. Also the off-piste skiers and ski tourers and off-piste fans will find happiness at Lake Hallstatt. Right from Hotel Agathawirt you can go to the Hütteneck and in the immediate surroundings, the Krippenstein will await you – a ski tour Eldorado.

Ski tours at the Krippenstein

Ascending the mountain by oneself, feeling nature very closely and finally enjoying the well-deserved ski runs. Those who have experienced this will not want to miss it. At the Krippenstein in the Dachstein massif, ski tourers will feel perfectly comfortable. The extensive mountain region enables you to experience nature in many ways.

Guided ski tours

Those who have not already felt the fascination of ski tours by themselves can try the experience with special courses for beginners at the Krippenstein. There you will learn everything from the necessary safety precautions, the right technique in deep snow and together you will take your first steps away from the piste.


Especially for ski tourers, the cableways at the Krippenstein offer the Rumplerkarte. The tourer's ticket includes the ascent on the first and the second section of the Dachstein Krippenstein cableway / Obertraun and the ascent on the Dachstein glacier with the double chairlift Mitterstein and the Schladming Gletscherlift. This makes the ski tour more flexible for you and you can enjoy it even more.

Freeride and off-piste at the Krippenstein

At the Krippenstein, you will also find 30 kilometres of freeride variants and powder tracks with 1,500 metres of altitude difference. The off-piste paradise on the Dachstein plateau has become famous for its perfect conditions. The Freesports Arena Dachstein Krippenstein is one of the hot spots to feel endless freedom in the alpine backcountry.

Safety in the free terrain

The first priority off-piste must always be safety! Only leave the protected areas with suitable equipment and never enter unknown areas alone. Make sure you know the current snow conditions of the day and when in doubt, better abstain from one day in the deep snow.
