Kinderhotel + ski resort in Austria = a skiing holiday for the whole family

With 142 kilometres of pistes, the Dachstein West ski region is the largest in Upper Austria.

This ski pass is valid in Gosau, Russbach and Annaberg as well as a further 6 ski resorts all within easy reach. Ski passes and ski lessons can be booked at the hotel reception. Ski rental and storage is available in the hotel.
