Schladming and its area ( under the Hohe Dachstein ) is one of the most attractive and snow-sure ski area in Austria. The village offers a lot of activities for every kind of visitor.
The Planai has the fastest FIS ski run of the world and there are beautiful runs that lead directly to the centre. Schladming is part of the 4-Bergen Skischaukel ski area and is connected to the villages of Haus/Ennstal, Rohrmoos and Pich/mandling. This ski area offers a total of 123 km of slopes! Even in Summer it is possible to ski in this area, on the Dachstein Glacier (2700m).
Throughout the valleys and near Ramsau, there are over 300 km of cross-country trails.
Another great facility is the lit ski slope of Rohrmoos. The lightning makes it possible to ski till 22:00 in the evening. The length of the slope is also incredible: no less than 3 km! There also opportunities for lovers of tobogganing.
There are several après-ski opportunities in the centre of Schladming and you might even come across Arnold Schwarznegger - he was born and raised in this village. For hikers there are over 20 km of groomed trails throughout the beautiful area.
