Dachstein West is certainly not a top-notch resort like Lech-Warth or Skiwelt Amadé. It is, however, a very decent mid-size resort that is perfect for families. The ski schools offer good quality and nice teachers. The runs offer something for everyone: long, short, blue, red,...More

We got cheap midwinter, last minute airfare. Unfortunately the ski conditions around the area were not so good. But that allowed us to have fun doing more than skiing. But the skiing was fun also. Not so groomed as the US and much wetter snow...More
